a hill, like no other.

After a long weekend visiting my grandparents in the countryside, I felt my inner travel bug calling, yearning for an adventure, for a new discovery. Luckily,  I’m very blessed to have incredible parents who share a sense of travel and adventure like me, so rather than driving the boring route back to Belgrade, we packed our bags, […]

What happens when two women don’t pay attention in traffic? Well, usually chaos – however our mini chaos turned out to be an extremely enriching and exciting adventure. As usual, we started our day with a scrumptious Turkish breakfast and planned to spend the larger part of our day exploring Topkapi Palace; which according to […]

istanbul part 2: sultanahmet district

Our second day started with the most beautiful sunshine, warmth and Turkish breakfast (which became our ritual for the next few days). We planned to visit the historical sights of Sultanahmet District which is a few tram stops away from our hotel. The tram system in Istanbul is highly commendable and extremely easy to use. It is […]

Known as the magical meeting place between the East and West, Istanbul has been a traveler’s dream for centuries, and so I am […]

Discover Serbia| Savamala

Belgrade has always been Europe’s gateway between East and West and is defined by diverse history and influence of cultures. So what have I been doing lately? Well…getting lost in all it’s charms of course, and this time I explored one of Belgrade’s oldest neighborhoods: Savamala. Located south of the Kalemegdan fortress and stretching along the Sava […]

Discover Germany | Wiesbaden

My parents and I took a recent trip down memory lane to the charming city of Wiesbaden, located in Hessen, Germany.  For many years, Wiesbaden was the centre point for us while travelling home for the summer holidays, however we never spent too much time in tourism, as we did in shopping.  This trip however, was quite […]

Discover Serbia | Mokra Gora

During our recent visit to Zlatibor, we passed by a village called Mokra Gora (Wet Mountain) to experience a trip back in time. Mokra Gora is located on the slopes of the Zlatibor mountain and is popular today because it is home to the authentic narrow railway called Sargan 8 and ethno village, Drvengrad (Timber Town). […]

Discover Serbia | Zlatibor

Why do city dwellers escape to the mountains during the weekends? Well I will tell you why – to find restoration which they lose from living in tall buildings and polluted air.  Today’s postcard features our recent trip to Zlatibor, a mountainous region located in South Western Serbia. Starting our journey from Belgrade at 7:00am, we […]

Road trip to Arandjelovac and Oplenac

Today’s postcard highlights the second part of our “local travel” weekend. We visited the city of Aranđelovac which was named after the Archangel Gabriel and holds historical importance in Serbian history – it is the place where the first Serbian uprising against the Turks took place in 1804. My mother has visited the city many times […]

Discover Germany | Berlin Part 5

The final postcard from Berlin highlights my last few days visiting this city of contemporary design and art.  I very much enjoyed walking as much as I could in the beautiful weather (after the weekend thunderstorm it really cooled off!). I must say, my favourite part of Berlin is Unter den Linden, a boulevard located in […]

Discover Germany | Berlin Part 4

My fourth postcard from Berlin comes from an earlier time where I explored Germany through the Baroque era leading into WWII. Starting with the mediaeval ages, Nikolaiviertel (Nikolai quarter) is the oldest residential area of Berlin and so well preserved, it simply takes you back in time, like in a fairytale. During the Middle Ages, a trade […]

Discover Germany | Berlin Part 3

The third postcard from Berlin comes from the historical period of the Cold War where we visited the Berlin Wall memorial, Checkpoint Charlie and Topography of Terror, after all – a trip to Berlin is useless if you don’t go back to this important time. The Berlin Wall was built in 1961 by the Communists […]

The second postcard from Berlin features our incredible Friday afternoon spent all over Berlin with very distinctive highlights (hence the title). The first one – afternoon at the Berlin Zoo. Wearing my lace inspired shorts, white top, sun hat and of course sunscreen (30SPF) we agreed it would be best to spend the hot day […]
