Trip pick: Bosnia and Herzegovina Expedition
"My first night in Bosnia and Herzegovina encapsulated why I love to travel with Intrepid: being welcomed into a local's home, sharing burek and dolma washed down with slivovitz, a local plum brandy, and exchanging stories with my hosts and fellow travellers from across the world. It was the beginning of an unforgettable adventure."
