Hiking in Plav

Apart from the hotel, most of what I planned here didn't turn out the way I wanted, and my parents and I ended up traipsing around up mountains but never getting exactly where we wanted to be. The blueberry festival in Plav was non-existent and the only sign of the fruit was at the marketplace. The first walk was to Lake Hrid, and we started off confident enough with signposts showing us the way, but soon we had to navigate using a compass, and then my biggest mistake was following a notice saying "Hridsko jezero" which turned out to be a winding dirt road for jeeps which doubled the length of the road. By 2pm we could see the lake from a distance but decided in view of the potential of not finding the car before dark to head back to Plav. It was a similar story the next day, trying to find Lake Visitor, when the path just ended without anywhere to go. When we tried to find our way by car to a viewpoint, the signposts availed us nothing, and we headed back triply disappointed. The Plav region is not yet ready for all but the hardiest and most persistent of foreign tourists!
