Leeds (June 2013)
I spent the past few days in the vibrant city of Leeds, which lies in the North of England. The reason of my visit of course was to add some extra WHS to my count. By public transport it is easy to get from there to Saltaire (a short hop on the regional train) and to Studley Royal Park (by bus, connecting in Ripon). The Park, its vistas and the hiking opportunities provided, I liked the most.

Balkan #4: Croatia (May 2013)
I topped off my 3-week Balkan tour in Croatia. I had been to the country before, visiting the WHS Hotspot around Split. This time I focused on Dubrovnik, which lies much more to the south and is actually more accessible from Bosnia or Montenegro. One is definitely back on the tourist trail here - the old city center is overrun by people from all corners of the world during the day.
Balkan #3: Montenegro (May 2013)
Tiny Montenegro is more westernized and a bit nondescript in comparison with its neighbours Serbia and Bosnia. Its coastal towns Budva and Kotor are overrun with tourists, and prices are almost as high as at home.
I visited both its WHS, which I found OK but not great. From the T-List, I can recommend the old capital Cetinje.

'I visited this WHS in June 2013. The cathedral's spiritual, religious and historical importance justifies it being on the list.'
