Oh! It’s Gaga’s Mom

We had some problems the first time we wanted to get into Bosnia and Herzegovina.

As it was pretty late and getting dark, so we wanted drive quickly to the country and find a place to stay for the night. First thing was that Christof just drove through the border control without noticing the stop sign, so that the croatian police had to call us back. Actually the policeman was a little bit pissed in the first few seconds and told us to park the car at the side and we were already thinking like „great, now he will completely check out the car in every single corner and we will stay there for hours“.

Lucky guys… he turned out very kind was just telling us that he could have charged us something arround 400€ just for that „mistake“ and we should never do that again. Christof apologized a lot and we were fine to get to the police of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Then came the thing that they wanted to see the green insurance card for the car to get into the country. Well, hmm… we forgot about this thing totally.

The result was just to turn arround and… wait for it … Yapp!

After 5 days more in croatia we finaly went further to Bosnia and Herzegovina. There we found this georgeous nice little garden next to a river, which was the place of Gaga’s mom. She welcomed us to stay there for one night with her great smile and a nice coffee and a bottle of Raki…

So we stayed there at our first day in Bosnia and Herzegovina until the sunset startet and had nice conversations with her and Gaga.

Gibraltar

It was time this morning to leave Portugal. We went through Spain to Gibraltar. Christof has arranged a place to sleep via Couchsurfing which was great. We’ve allowed us to spend 3 nights there.

However we were some nervous and also curious what was comming up on our first Couchsurfingexperience. Nicky, our host was a nice and funny man, born in Colombia, grew up in London, adopted by a family from Gibraltar.

There were already two other Couchsurfers in his house, Emilio from Argentina and Lorena from Valencia. This couple traveled through the world for the last 5 years. A lovely couple, real nomads, we are far away from that.

Gibraltar is something special. It is United Kingdom or something entirely own. Actually, it’s both. The border between Spain and Gibraltar is so surreal. Even the airport is a challenge, not only for the pilots. The runway crosses the main road which is also the entrance and border to the city. Unbelievable.

The interesting thing about Gibraltar is really the history of this 6,5 square kilometer thing on Earth. Spain, GB… Moors, Arabs etc all lived here and left traces.

Then there are the monkeys of Gibraltar. This funny and cheeky animals are something like a tourist magnet. But please do not feed them or take food with you on the mountain. They can become pretty annoying and aggressive then.

We went up the rock with Emilio and Lorena. It took us over 2 hours to the top of the mountain from which you can enjoy a wonderful view and look over in good weather even on Morocco.
