More Montenegro, in pictures!

'Allo folks! Chris here, express via undersea interweb cables from Australia.

Thought I'd share a few snaps my intrepid father took on his recent exploration of Montenegro. Perhaps they'll inspire you to book a room via our Indiegogo campaign ( indiegogo.com/projects/the-grove-montenegro#/ ). Stay tuned for exciting updates from our architects!

Lake Skadar, not far from The Grove

The Tara bridge, crossing the Tara river in the north

On the road from Zabljak to the Tara river (excellent white water rafting spot)

A footbridge to Bosnia & Herzegovina... lacking any customs or border controls!

Launch Time

Here is the link to our Indiegogo crowdsourcing campaign, where you can become a part of The Grove.

We look forward to seeing you here.

Down Time

And so here we are.

 It is November, believe it or not. We have been at work, having babies (seriously, one of us did), eating, sleeping, repeating, all 4 of us involved in this project just getting on with life. It is funny to think of The Grove, just sitting there. Housing animals and hay, the spider webs getting thicker. Being bashed by sun and rain. Just waiting patiently for someone to come and love it.

     Chris's dad visited Stari Bar just a couple of weeks ago. It is always nice to imagine other people there. There really is something magical about the spot, and we get shivers of delight knowing there is someone sitting in our garden, appreciating the serenity. Here's a photo of the mill he took from the fort, and from just across the river. It is looking particularly lush after heavy rainfall.

     The architects are supplying drawings, and we are slowly getting there with final sketches of the internals. We all are in touch almost everyday, be it through the curation of the pinterest board, skype calls or just group messaging.

   Here's a sneaky look at our pinterest board, just so you can imagine what's going through our heads.


       We are to begin the external structural works in January. But in order for this to happen, we are going to need your help.....
