JOURNALIST IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD
Being a journalist for many years, I have enjoyed writing and editing stories regarding inner and foreign politics, had an opportunity to work as a correspondent in the Middle East, became interested in geopolitical issues…
But I have always loved to travel and was constantly on the move, curious about the world. Since being so used to writing, I wrote about my trips, even while I was on holidays, and did so in my spare time. Still struck by all those specific situations, people I have met, diversity of the world, joy and impatience to see more, small amazing scenes and “sketches” that I have encountered, and that are yet to come – Glimpses, as I like to call them – struck with the amazement and gratitude, I have decided to share the experience through this travel blog.
Travel blog packed to go
In my opinion, the best way to speak about traveling is by telling a bunch of interesting travel stories, anecdotes which are always fun. Therefore, I will try to “pack” my trips into various stories.
These Glimpses of The World are written from scratch, usually in both English and Serbian – since the later is my native language, rich and wonderful to use in telling stories. On the other hand, most of those travel articles that have been published in my country over the years (in Serbian national newspapers and web magazines), I am going to post here as they were, with the English translation accordingly. Some I might write all over again, others perhaps “pack” in numerous Glimpses instead, in order to make it more accessible and easier to read.
Sit back and meet the world
So, the plan is as follows: I will post couple of Glimpses every week, let’s say – on Tuesdays and Fridays, along with parts of the actual article in between if available. That way, I am going to cover one destination per month… Oh well, this does sound a bit like a deadline!
Hopefully, we will go for a journey to meet the world together, and these Glimpses would be helpful to those who plan to travel, or just interesting to read to those who already share the passion.
Anyway, I am looking forward to tell you the whole story and am starting to feel impatient… Let me just fetch my coffee and cookies, and I will start typing immediately. Hope you will enjoy the journey just as much.
See you in Glimpses in a bit,
