Postcards from Eastern Europe – Medjugorje

Currently reporting from Mostar, Bosnia/Herzegovina.

One of the main reasons for this trip is my wife’s desire to do a pilgrimage in the town of Medjugorje in what was once a war torn nation of Yugoslavia…now split into the independent nation of Bosnia/Herzegovina. Although not listed in any tourist guidebooks, Catholics flock to this small town. Click on the town name above for more info on the pilgrimage.

I stayed two nights at a pansion. It's a Serbian term for guesthouse. My room was at the top right. Architecture is pretty nondescript in this small town.

The local food is hearty, tasty and cheap. About $10 per person for dinner. Not shown is the included salad, dessert and espresso.

The $10 includes all you can drink home made wines and hard liquor. I didn't want to be rude and refuse a drink...or two

Small personal vineyards are popular.
