Rhodes/Greece: LET’S HIT THE BEACH! (5)

Okay, so we have visited few historic locations so far, learned a couple of myths, but even though there is a lot still to come, it's time to take a break. I am sure you will agree after checking out these Rhodes' beaches! And yes, even I need a rest from time to time, believe … Continue reading Rhodes/Greece: LET’S HIT THE BEACH! (5)

Rodos/Grčka: IDEMO NA PLAŽU! (5)

E pa, lepo, obišli smo puno istorijskih znamenitosti, naučili po nešto novo iz mitologije, ali – iako je ostalo još mnogo toga da se vidi – ipak ćemo napraviti pauzu. Sigurna sam da ćete se složiti sa mnom kada budete videli kakvih sve plaža ima na Rodosu! I da, čak i meni ponekad treba odmor, … Continue reading Rodos/Grčka: IDEMO NA PLAŽU! (5)

Rhodes/Greece: MEET THE (MALTESE) KNIGHTS (4)

Have to admit that I was avoiding to enter the walls of the Old Town in Rhodes for days, since I have booked a walking tour with Toma, our Odeon World Travel tour guide on the island. After so many things I have already read and heard about Rhodes' history, I didn't want to "spoil" … Continue reading Rhodes/Greece: MEET THE (MALTESE) KNIGHTS (4)

Rodos/Grčka: UPOZNAJTE (MALTEŠKE) VITEZOVE (4)

Moram da priznam da sam izbegavala da zađem unutar zidina Starog grada kad sam tek stigla na Rodos, jer sam planirala da to učinim sa Tomom, našim vodičem Odeon World Travel-a na ostrvu, koji nas je vodio u "Šetnju kroz Stari grad". Posle toliko stvari koje sam pročitala i čula o istoriji ostrva, nisam želela … Continue reading Rodos/Grčka: UPOZNAJTE (MALTEŠKE) VITEZOVE (4)

Rhodes/Greece: THERE STOOD THE COLOSSUS! (3)

"Look, there, you see those two pillars with a deer and a roe deer on the top, on opposite sides of the harbor entrance? There, that is the spot where the famous Colossus of Rhodes stood, with his feet on opposite sides and boats sailing in through his legs", our Odeon World Travel tour guide … Continue reading Rhodes/Greece: THERE STOOD THE COLOSSUS! (3)

Rodos/Grčka: TU JE STAJAO KOLOS! (3)

"Pogledajte tamo, vidite ona dva stuba na čijim vrhovima se nalaze jelen i srna, na suprotnim stranama ulaza u malu luku? Eto, to je mesto na kojem su bila Kolosova stopala, jedno na jednoj strani, drugo na drugoj, dok su brodovi uplovljavali, prolazeći kroz njegove noge", naznačio je naš vodič iz Odeon World Travel-a na … Continue reading Rodos/Grčka: TU JE STAJAO KOLOS! (3)

Rhodes/Greece: JUST THE RIGHT VACATION TIME (2)

Had a day or two to relax upon coming to Rhodes and decided to spend it on the beach and stroll around town’s narrow streets. On the eastern part of the island, they say, the Mediterranean Sea is usually peaceful with a wave or two. But the western coast (the Aegean side) is just too … Continue reading Rhodes/Greece: JUST THE RIGHT VACATION TIME (2)

Rodos/Grčka: PRAVO VREME ZA LETOVANJE (2)

Imala sam dan-dva da se odmorim kad sam stigla, razvlačim se po plaži i šetam uskim ulicama glavnog grada. Na istočnom delu ostrva, kažu, Sredozemno more je obično mirno, sa tek ponekim talasom koji zaluta. Ali zapadna, Egejska strana, je izuzetno vetrovita. Ako vas zanima surfovanje, znate gde ćete. Gradske plaže Pošto se grad Rodos … Continue reading Rodos/Grčka: PRAVO VREME ZA LETOVANJE (2)

Rhodes/Greece: THE EVER IMPOSING SUN GOD (1)

The moment you step onto the soil of Rhodes, it’s immediately clear why they call it the Island of the Sun. The clear sky, the unreal sea color that ranges from turquoise to dark blue, high waves that seem to send out the message that you have come to the place so alive, where nature … Continue reading Rhodes/Greece: THE EVER IMPOSING SUN GOD (1)

Rodos/Grčka: NAMETLJIVI BOG SUNCA (1)

Čim zakoračite na tlo Rodosa, odmah vam bude jasno zašto ga zovu „Ostrvom sunca“. Vedro nebo, nestvarna boja mora u paleti od tirkizne do tamno plave, visoki talasi koji kao da vam poručuju da ste upravo došli na jedno živo mesto gde se priroda šepuri svom svojom lepotom i snagom! Ovde je pride gotovo uvek … Continue reading Rodos/Grčka: NAMETLJIVI BOG SUNCA (1)

Let’s go to RHODES/Greece!

So, let’s make it official! I have been exploring the Greek island of Rhodes for couple of days now and it’s time to start another unique series of travel Glimpses. Since the summer is almost here, having in mind that it’s already 28 degrees Celsius on the island, this is the perfect location to step into … Continue reading Let’s go to RHODES/Greece!

Singapore: CABLE CAR TO SENTOSA ISLAND (9)

Oasis of nature - a small island people from Singapore escape to during weekends to swim, lie on the beach or walk along well organized forest treks - that is just the sight that should close this Singapore series. The name of the island is Sentosa and it is available to all the citizens of … Continue reading Singapore: CABLE CAR TO SENTOSA ISLAND (9)

Singapur: ŽIČAROM DO OSTRVA SENTOZA (9)

Ono čime treba da se završi serija tekstova o Singapuru, jeste svakako obilazak jednog od manjih ostrva u okolini glavnog. Oaza prirode, u koju Singapurci pobegnu vikendom da se brčkaju i izležavaju na plaži ili šetaju sređenom i gustom šumom. Ostrvo se zove Sentoza i više je nego dostupno svima koji u ovom gradu-državi žive … Continue reading Singapur: ŽIČAROM DO OSTRVA SENTOZA (9)

Singapore: BREAKFAST WITH ORANGUTANS (8)

One of the seemingly most popular attractions when I was there, was the so called Singapore's Night Safari. Well, "while in Singapore", right! I have stumbled upon this tour numerous times when I was reading about the city, planning to travel there, so thought it wouldn't hurt to try. It sure is one nice visit … Continue reading Singapore: BREAKFAST WITH ORANGUTANS (8)

Singapur: DORUČAK SA ORANGUTANIMA (8)

Prvo što će vam svaka singapurska turistička agencija ponuditi kao "najveću atrakciju" je takozvani "Noćni safari". Kad ste već tu (a i ako ste se putem interneta obaveštavali o stvarima "koje treba posetiti" sigurno ste nabasali i na ovaj safari), upustite se i u ovu avanturu, što da ne, naročito ako putujete s decom. Međutim, … Continue reading Singapur: DORUČAK SA ORANGUTANIMA (8)

Singapore: ABUNDANCE OF ORCHIDS AND BIRDS (7)

Speaking of parks and vegetation, it should be mentioned that there are all sorts of tropical plants in Singapore due to warm and humid climate. The city is actually well famous for its field of orchids. Proud of their natural resources, people from Singapore turned vast portions of land into gardens. Botanic gardens stretch along … Continue reading Singapore: ABUNDANCE OF ORCHIDS AND BIRDS (7)

Singapur: OBILJE ORHIDEJA I PTICA (7)

Kad smo već kod parkova i vegetacije, treba znati da u Singapuru zbog vlažne i tople klime uspevaju svakojake tropske biljke. Ono po čemu je ovaj grad na istoku naročito poznat jesu polja različitih vrsta orhideja. Ponosni na ovo svoje prirodno bogatstvo, Singapurci su pozamašni deo grada odvojili za velike bašte i uzgajališta. Botanički vrtovi … Continue reading Singapur: OBILJE ORHIDEJA I PTICA (7)
