To arrive in the magnificent river fjord of Kotor aboard the majestic Sea Cloud at sunrise is to be transported into a fairytale of mist and magic. In the morning, we drove along the coast to explore the town of Perast and take a short ferry to the small island Church of Our Lady of the Rocks. Back in Kotor, our local guides gave us an introduction to the old city before setting us free to get lost in the labyrinth of little alleyways and shops. The afternoon was full of adventure as we made our way up the 25-switchback road to the town of Njegusi, where we tasted their famous smoked ham and local cheese. We were also rewarded with spectacular views of the entire fjord and narrows speckled with tiny islands.
