Playing hooky with Kate

Kate is a fellow-YWAMer who is travelling around and doing interviews with people for her Masters studies. She first came to stay in July while the Dutch team was here, and hung out with us then. But as I was too busy to show her around, she just got to experience what life is like when there is a team here and not much else. And then after visiting Sarajevo and Belgrade, she is now back for a little bit before carrying on her travels...

Yesterday, Ljilja and I decided to play hooky and take the day to show her the beautiful city of Jajce (and some of the sights on the way there and back). Here we are with Jajce in the background: 
We had really good cevapi for lunch and then headed to the new lookout which is right in front of the waterfall. You can get right down in front of it, which is amazing, but the spray is so much it really isn't clever to take pictures there - so here we are a little higher up: still stunning...
After that we went up to look inside the catacombs. I had never been as they were never open whenever I have been in Jajce before. They are carved out of solid rock, and even though it was almost 30 degrees outside, it was pretty chilly inside - in fact you could see your breath! They were built as the final resting place of the Duke of the area in the late 14th Century and it is quite an amazing place. And you can even get some funky photos, like the one below :)
It has been fun having Kate here, and think she enjoyed playing hooky with us too :)

Gorgeous! I have never visited catacombs. I was close to doing so in Rome, once. But then, the place was closed and someone tried to pick my pocket (unrelated). As cold as it is, you don't seem to be shivering in your short sleeves.
