Sorry for delayed blog post – been having a little too much fun!  I can also blame the lack of wifi in a couple spots.  Anyway, remembering back to a couple weeks ago…the train ride from Mostar was awesome as we cut through breathtaking river gorges and mountains for most of the 3.5 hour journey.  […]
