My husband and I are planning to travel from the US to BiH in August. I'd like to bring some small gifts for people we stay with (I'm thinking of going on Couchsurfing.com for a few connections). Chocolate in the US is nowhere near as nice as that of other countries, so I don't want to bring that :)
Would people appreciate little mementos from US cities? I'd like to bring something that people will actually enjoy, rather than fill up a kind host's house with junk. Thanks!
why is it so hard for people in this country to receive visas to USA?
Hi there, I'm new to travelling but i'm prepared to try anything (especially accompanied by more experienced friend). We're planning to go to Sarajevo then explore the Sutjeska National Park during the last week or two of October this year (2008). By all accounts this is an amazing part of Europpe to explore however I have found it very difficult to find any detailed information to help us estabish what is possible and how best to prepare for it. In particualr can anyone suggest places that may have information (in english) on transportation links in the area (we'll be backpacking), locations of key attractions, accommodation and its availability (we're planning on not taking camping equipment) and any advice on climbing Maglic.
Thanks in advance,
Hi! I'm Mexican and hoping to travel to Bosnia with my boyfriend (who is from there). I was irresponsible and didn't check with enough time for visa requirements, and it turns out I need one to go (my ticket is for travel in a little bit over three weeks). I am in the US studying, so I would need to go to Washington, D.C. Since I would be staying at my boyfriend's family house in Sarajevo, I was told I need a letter from a citizen over there. Some distant relative is trying to help us, but apparently the letter will take ten days to be issued, and I fear not getting it on time (the documents were submitted today, August 21st). I am seeking advice either from people that had to get their visa in DC (it would be helpful to know what their experience was), and if anybody has experience with getting that invitation letter going faster. The people whom I talked to in the embassy in DC were really friendly, but clearly stated that I cannot apply as a tourist. I would have to give them an invoice of payed hotel for the duration of the trip, and I guess now I've told them that I plan to stay at the family house, so I don't know if they would deny me a visa if I try to get a hotel room in case the letter doesn't make it on time. I would just hate to lose my ticket because my invitation letter will take 10 days to be issued! Any advice will be *greatly* appreciated.
My wife and I are travelling to Medjugorje in January 2007 for 4-5 days. We arrive in Split around noon. Could you please let us know the best way to get to Medjugorje from the airport and how long it takes.
We have not made any arrangements for accomodation and would like to stay with a family there. Could you suggest how to book a place or is the a web site for family accomodation in Medjugorje.
Greetings fellow travellers. Several questions to the kind souls with experience.
1. Do US citizens need a travel visa to Croatia or Bosnia-Herz?
2. What is the best way to get to Medjugore from Dubrovnik?
I am looking for accommodation in Neum the last week of September/ first few days of October for six nights for two adults. We will have just spent seven days in Sarajevo turning the country by car and taking on fun adventures, so this part of the trip will be mostly sedate except for the few side trips for white water and Croatian cities.
I would like a place on the water if possible or close enough to walk easily.
Thank you in advance.

Hi, I am planning to visit Bosnia-Herzegovina next week and I found next to impossible to find out if there is any kind of bus/train connection between Sarajevo and Mostar. I could not find any train details and at the Centrotrans website (Sarajevo's bus station) everything was in Bosnian which I unfortunately don't speak ;-( I would like to know if there is such connection and the timetable and price as well as how long it takes. Also, if possible same details from Mostar to Dubrovnik in Croatia and to Belgrade in Serbia. I would be also very grateful about any accomodation suggestions in Mostar. THANKS in advance! Edu
I am flying to Split Croatia and after some days there I would like to rent and drive a car to Bosnia Herzegovina. How long would it take to arrive first to the Banja Luka and the mountains area and then if I have time I would even like to visit Sarajevo.

A group of friends and I are planning a month long motorbiking tour of the countries bordering the Eastern Mediteranian over into Turkey and back to Switzerland through Russia and Ukraine. Where are the best camping spots resonably priced in Bosnia Herzegovina, what should we look out for (ie: scams, violence) and where are the best places to drive through (great biking roads, scenery, culture). Any advice is much appreciated! P.S. Are there any visa/border entrance requirements we should know about for Canadian and Swiss passport holders??
