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 […]

I love understanding the preparation method of the dishes, why certain ingredients go better together than others… and more than anything, I love admiring a beautifully plated dish. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

My friend Jelisaveta and I decided to check out the dining scene in Belgrade’s trendiest new spot called Beton Hala. The converted strip was an old warehouse located on Belgrade’s port overlooking the glimmering river Sava and is now home to 6 diverse restaurants featuring cuisines from around the globe. As we made our way across the […]

new beginnings.

Every story has an ending, but in life, every ending is a new beginning. One week has passed by since I said goodbye to my sparkling life in Abu Dhabi and yet it feels like only yesterday. Having lived all over the world literally my entire life, one would think that goodbyes, closing chapters and farewells are […]
