Well off the trodden European trail, the southeastern destinations of Croatia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Kosovo are a delight for adventure-seekers and culture enthusiasts alike. The magic of the mountains is found not only in the wondrous landscapes but also in the hospitable people and their deep connections to local tradition.
World Nomad is looking for three aspiring storytellers to travel around this region and write about the natural attractions and cultural charms that they find along the way.

Receive round-trip airfare from your country of residence to Dubrovnik, Croatia where you will transfer to Herceg Novi, Montenegro.

Wander the Balkans in style with $500 USD worth of adventure travel clothing from ExOfficio.
