Sometimes you meet super nice people when travelling. I love to listen and learn from others, a great insight how the rest of the world ticks. Very often people tell me about their bucket list, and one place I hear repeatedly, is the bridge in Mostar. The other day I meet this absolutely lovely couple, and at one point the guy tells me “The Bridge in Mostar is impressive, the rest is, how to best put it, there is nothing to see really, it is all very run down and neglected.”

The war ended only in 1995. People make a living somehow, they probably, most certainly love their home country. They didn’t just rebuild that bridge in 2004 to make tourists come and visit. Mostar is a place where real people live, they are not actors employed to entertain day visitors. The victims of the war still work their way through the consequences of it, and there are many bombed out buildings still.
