Today in Wikipedia wormholing

It started with this photo of Dubrovnik on Instagram

It mentioned ‘Siege of Dubrovnik’, so looked it up to read on it.

From there, went to read about Operation Tiger (1992), and the Battle of Konavle.

In parallel tabs, also read about the Bay of Kotor and the peninsula of Prevlaka.

Bay of Kotor, lead to reading about KarstificationMontenegro, town of Herceg Novi, and (from Montenegro) about a 12 Km long beach called Velika Plaža. Montenegro seems like a good, slightly off-beat place to visit.

At this point, I took a detour from Wikipedia to Google maps, and spent a while exploring the region… Mainly bay of Kotor.

Returning to Wikipedia, resumed with the war articles. Next up, from Operation Tiger in 1992, to Operation Storm in 1995. It was, apparently, the biggest land battle in Europe since WW2!

Also open, though yet to be read, are articles on Operation Summer (1995)State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, and Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (1918–1929).

Think they’ll last me the night 🙂
