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 […]

royalty and natural mineral water

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 […]

hearts and traditions

Hello readers! This weekend my parents and I had the privilege to visit their friends in a mountain escape just outside of Belgrade called Rajac; which hosted the 35th Rajac Scythe Festival (in Serbian: Kosidba na Rajcu). The main part of the festival is the scything competition where participants (dressed in traditional Serbian dress) compete with each […]

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 […]

Discover Germany | Berlin Part 2

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 […]

Discover Germany | Berlin Part 1

As most of you know, I have just returned from a visit to Berlin, where my Abu Dhabi friend, Jasmin, currently lives. While it was only a 6 day visit, I must say we have covered the city pretty much from head to toe, in the biggest summer heat – find out below what we have […]

happiness is….

What is it about the weather that affects humans so much… or I am a special case? Whenever it is rainy and gloomy all I want to do is snuggle in my cozy blanket while sipping tea and watching movies all day – not to mention no energy! And when the sun is out, I […]

Milan, Emily and I decided to enjoy dinner by the river on Milan’s last night in Belgrade, so we headed to Beton Hala which hosts 6 diverse restaurants. We were attracted to the decor of the terrace of Cantina de Frida, a Mexican tapas restaurant and bar. The inspiration of the restaurant is based on Frida Kahlo, […]

I was very lucky to spend the weekend with Emily and my fabulous brother Milan who flew all the way from Abu Dhabi just for 2 days. Saturday morning kicked off with Milan making us his breakfast specialty: pancakes (he is the pancake master after all)! We wanted to spend a lovely day out of […]

shopping!

I’ve been shopping all my life, and still have nothing to wear. (said every woman in the world) Precisely  correct, which is why I spent all afternoon doing what every woman lives for. Passing through the city centre I couldn’t help but notice the beauty of Belgrade’s architecture and green parks. I headed to the shopping district […]

a sunny day

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 […]
