I saw the sights of 4 countries (Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina) in the Balkan Peninsula facing the Adriatic Sea and Doha (Qatar) in the Arabian Peninsula.

It was very wonderful travel.

I was heavily involved in the glittering sights of the Adriatic Sea, in the magnificent nature, in the ancient city that keeps still living and in their life.

I introduce this trip by many photographs from now.

Summary of this trip

I joined a tour organized by a tour company with my wife.

Travel schedule were from Saturday, August 29, 2015 to Sunday, September 6.

We shuttled between Kansai International Airport and Zagreb Airport via Doha Airport by airplanes.

We went around the actual place by a bus.


Good points of this trip

We visited five world heritages, two capitals, and other three sightseeing spots, and were able to contact the history, nature and people’s life.

We were able to enjoy walk because there was the free time from approximately 1 hour to 1.5 hours in each sightseeing spot.

Almost everyday, we were able to enjoy walk around our hotel in morning and evening a little.


Slightly bad points of this trip

In the end of August, the lingering summer heat is still intense, and the shadow of photograph appeared strongly.

It was a little regrettable that there wasn’t a half day of free time.

Now, things that I think about this trip

Before going, I thought that Balkan countries became waste by the civil war and were underdeveloped.

But, I became to have good impression toward local people, while our bus had run on the shoreline of the Adriatic Sea and I had seen them at many towns.

I felt envious of the people who lived in a relaxed way in abundant or wild nature.

On the other hand, I touched a scar of the civil war and a traffic jam in a border checkpoint and saw difference between various races and religions.

Then a question arose.

Why did the people in this area have to suffer?


I introduce this travel and the appearance of Balkan countries from various viewpoints.


This continues next time.
