An update from the road... we're on our grand tour and we're in Montenegro!

This is the longest I've gone without posting on my poor neglected Cool Travel Guide. You want to know why? Drop by Grantourismo and you'll see that we've been a tad busy on our yearlong grand tour of the world, which we embarked on in February in partnership with HomeAway Holiday-Rentals. So far our trip has taken us from Melbourne via Dubai to London, Marrakech, Essaouira, Madrid, Jerez, Barcelona (pictured), Ceret, Perpignan, Paris, and now we're in Kotor in Montenegro. We're busy, but we're meeting some amazing people, having some extraordinary experiences, and we're generating some top quality content of which we're really proud: go take a look! I won't be neglecting Cool Travel Guide for much longer though... I have plans to re-launch the blog very soon, which I'll share with you shortly. In the meantime, do come and visit us at Grantourismo - even if it's just to drop by and say hello!

I thought Montenegro was pretty great. We only went to Kotor and the areas around--mainly we were in Croatia. We posted about it if you are interested... though I'm sure you've got lots of other sources!
I enjoyed the feature on Prêt à Voyager by the way. After we were featured I've been kind of glued to series. Happy travels!

Do you have any hiking suggestions for Montenegro? I've heard the terrain is really rugged with a lot of castles and monasteries. Just my sort of thing! I always like to mix history with hiking. My walk along the length of Hadrian's Wall last year was one of the best hikes I've ever done. Highly recommended.

I am graduating in April of 2010 and would love to take a trip around the world like this. I want to be a travel writer and I'm hoping my blog will help me with this future career. I've never been to Montenegro but I would love to see it one day soon.
