Montenegro is the Italian version of the country's name. Translated as black mountain. And that's what it is. This tiny little country is mountain after mountain after mountain.
In the small town that we live in, there are plenty of cars around, but the most common mode of transportation is..... feet.
Stairs and stairs, and then more stairs, means that getting easily to most places (if you live close to town) is a matter of walking.
And when you get into the centre of town, well, there's a little more stair climbing to do. I think this is the reason that despite pastry for breakfast, locals are generally slim.
A popular pastime, is walking along the promenade. For us, it means about 250 steps down. It's how we justify the ice-cream when we get there.
