Our first real boarder crossing happened without any problems, 3 different controls from the croatian and bosnian boarder officer and then we where in Bosnia.
Directly after the boarder we had a break in a small town called Novi Gorad including a walk through the centre and our first Cokta in a bar next to the river.
Then we drove on looking for a place for the night, which wasn`t that easy. as the settlements are quite tight.
The next day we drove to Banja Luka, where we finally found the first big market and enjoyed a fresh, tasty Burek.
Towards midday we drove to the north of Bosnia, to Sitneši, where we passed our next weeks on a farm.
On our trip we have planned to stay longer on one place and if possible to work for local people for free food. One possibility is helpex, which we used for the first time in Bosnia. The place was a small farm, where next to our host parents Nenad and Snjeza lived other volunteers, as well as different animals like dogs, cats, horses, chicken and pigs. It was never boring, as there where many different duties. Next to cooking, baking and feeding the animals, we helped to build a part of a new fence and a patio and making hay. In return we got heaps of very good bosnian food, horse riding lessons, rides to the forrest with the horses and fun with the animals and all our living mates.
End of august we unfortunately had to say goodbye, which wasn`t easy, but we wanted to meet our friends in Croatia. After exactly one month we left Dona Farm. Along the northern boarder to Croatia we drove back to Novi Gorad (start of our trip in Bosnia) and further on through a nice canyon with the river Una to Bihać, where we passed the boarder to croatia.
