When Colin Kingsmill moved from Canada to Montenegro in the summer of 2009, he knew little of what to expect from life in one of Europe’s smallest and youngest countries.
Four years later, he’s still there – and is now Head of Real Estate at Luštica Bay .
Colin has chronicled his Montenegrin adventure on his blog, LifeinMontenegro.com . As well as being an invaluable resource for visitors or new residents, it’s an engaging record of how he fell head-over-heels in love with his new home – and how Montenegro’s people have taken their new neighbour to heart, too.
Guided by a sense of adventure and an open mind, Colin’s writings on life as an expat and the changes he’s witnessing in Montenegro make for eloquent and often amusing reading, while his tips on his favourite hotels and restaurants are a must-read for visitors and new residents alike.
The impressive photos Colin shares on Life in Montenegro, grouped into themes such as ‘Bay of Kotor’, ‘Luštica Peninsula’ and ‘On the Water’, go a long way to conveying the beauty of his new home. All the same, he comments that his pictures can never do these views justice. Whenever friends and relatives come to visit, they always tell him how much more beautiful the country is in real life.
Clearly, there’s no substitute for visiting Montenegro for yourself. But until you do, you can keep up with Colin’s adventure via his Twitter account , or by subscribing to his blog.
