Jordan: AMMAN, THINGS TO DO (2)

When traveling to Jordan, one of the stops to do is certainly the capital Amman, probably different from what you might expect. This is one modern city with the usual traffic jams (Arabic style!), cozy hotels, nice walkways, shopping malls with everything from Starbucks to Prada. The country is populated by Arab Muslims and it … Continue reading Jordan: AMMAN, THINGS TO DO (2)

Jordan: AMAN, GLAVNI GRAD (2)

Ako ste već u Jordanu, nezaobilazno ćete posetiti i glavni grad Aman, koji će sigurno biti drugačiji od onoga što ste očekivali. Moderan grad, čist, sa uobičajenim saobraćajnim gužvama (i neumornim arapskim sirenama), udobnim hotelima, uređenim šetalištima, tržnim centrima u kojima možete naći sve od "Starbucks" kafe do "Pradinih" cipela. Stanovništvo je arapsko, muslimanske vere, … Continue reading Jordan: AMAN, GLAVNI GRAD (2)

Jordan: THINGS TO KNOW (1)

You will get the picture of how impatient I was to visit Jordan if I tell you that I was actually waiting for few years for the trip to take place. I knew that I shouldn’t travel on my own, not around Middle East and not for the first time at least, and local agencies … Continue reading Jordan: THINGS TO KNOW (1)

Jordan: ZANIMLJIVOSTI, I PONEKI SAVET (1)

Da li da vam kažem da sam svojevremeno čekala nekoliko godina (pet, da budem precizna), da domaće agencije počnu da rade aranžmane za Jordan! Nakon što sam videla slike Petre, gutala sam sve što sam mogla da nađem da pročitam o ovom antičkom gradu. I strpljivo sam čekala svoju priliku! A ona je došla prvi … Continue reading Jordan: ZANIMLJIVOSTI, I PONEKI SAVET (1)

JORDAN anyone? Hop on!

The time has come to travel to one spectacular country in the Middle East, the one that hosted Lawrence of Arabia once, but Indiana Jones as well! The jewel of rose-colored sands and hidden ancient towns that offers a modern city experience with business districts and shopping malls, but also - Bedouin tents and camel … Continue reading JORDAN anyone?

Cuba: HOW ERNESTO ESCAPED ME (10)

The news these days were so disturbing. Reports on Irma hurricane 10 days ago rushing through Cuba glued me to TV screen for hours. The monster storm was tearing off roofs, wrecking the power grid and damaging crops for couple of days on the island, leaving Cuba in need for assistance. More than 10 people … Continue reading Cuba: HOW ERNESTO ESCAPED ME (10)

Kuba: KAKO ME JE ERNESTO ZAOBIŠAO (10)

Vesti su ovih dana bile više nego uznemirujuće. Izveštaji sa terena posle udara uragana Irme na Kubu pre oko 10 dana zalepili su me za TV. Strašno nevreme je kidalo krovove, oštetilo elektranu, uništilo useve za samo par dana, ostavivši Kubu u tako lošoj situaciji da joj je hitno potrebna pomoć. Više od 10 ljudi … Continue reading Kuba: KAKO ME JE ERNESTO ZAOBIŠAO (10)

Cuba: TRIP BACK IN TIME, AND THERE’S CHE GUEVARA! (9)

There really is a lot to see in Cuba. Even though Havana is not to be missed, it's not the only place to visit. One of the reasons one comes to the island is probably the legacy of Che Guevara, the famous guerrilla leader who helped belated president Fidel Castro carry out the revolution. So, … Continue reading Cuba: TRIP BACK IN TIME, AND THERE’S CHE GUEVARA! (9)

Kuba: PUT KROZ VREME, EVO I ČE GEVARE! (9)

Na Kubi ima puno toga da se poseti. Iako je Havana svakako obavezna stanica i ono što mora da se vidi, to ipak nije jedini grad vredan pažnje. Jedan od razloga da se putuje na Kubu jeste svakako i nasleđe Če Gevare, čuvenog vođe gerilaca, koji je pomogao pokojnom predsedniku Fidelu Kastru da povede revoluciju. … Continue reading Kuba: PUT KROZ VREME, EVO I ČE GEVARE! (9)

Cuba: CADILLAC OR CHEVROLET, HM? (8)

Since the energy crises of the late 1980s, when the Soviet Union and Eastern European countries stopped supplying Cuba with the petrol it needed, "every possible means has been used to get around the island". I read this in a guide book and let me tell you - it's so true! You can see vintage … Continue reading Cuba: CADILLAC OR CHEVROLET, HM? (8)

Kuba: KADILAK ILI ŠEVROLET, HM? (8)

Još od energetske krize osamdesetih godina 20. veka, kada su Sovjetski Savez i zemlje Istočne Evrope prekinule snabdevanje Kube neophodnim gorivom, "svako moguće sredstvo koje se kreće upotrebljeno je za transport po ostrvu". Ovo sam pročitala u knjižici o Kubi i mogu vam reći - sve je istina! Na ulici možete da vidite američke "oldtajmere" … Continue reading Kuba: KADILAK ILI ŠEVROLET, HM? (8)

Cuba: THE CAPITOL AND THE REVOLUTION (7)

Remember that we were on foot strolling around the Old Town? Well, we will just keep walking, since there are some beautiful spots to see and visit in the Centro Habana. So, the next neighborhood, the very center of the Cuban capital, is dominated by Capitalio. The building is inaugurated in 1929 and is a … Continue reading Cuba: THE CAPITOL AND THE REVOLUTION (7)

Kuba: KAPITOL I REVOLUCIJA (7)

Sećate se da smo krenuli peške iz Starog grada? E pa, samo ćemo nastaviti dalje sa našom šetnjom, jer se na ovaj deo grada nastavlja Centro Havana sa još zanimljivosti koje treba videti. Tako dolazimo do sledećeg trga, do kvarta koji predstavlja sam centar kubanske prestonice i kojim dominira Kapitol. Zgrada je podignuta 1929. po … Continue reading Kuba: KAPITOL I REVOLUCIJA (7)

Cuba: STROLLING THE OLD HAVANA (6)

Okay, we took a break at the beach in the last Glimpse and hope you are now ready for a walk and all those “things to do in Havana”. There is so much to see in the city and I was actually hopping on the bus every once in a while, since there were daily … Continue reading Cuba: STROLLING THE OLD HAVANA (6)

Kuba: ŠETNJA KROZ STARU HAVANU (6)

E, pa, dobro, napravili smo malu pauzu za plažu u prethodnom Glimpse-u, pa se nadam da ste sada spremni za šetnju i ono čuveno „šta videti u Havani“. U glavnom gradu Kube ima toliko toga da se obiđe, da sam malo-malo, pa utrčavala u autobus iz Varadera (iz hotela je išao svakodnevno za prestonicu). Ponesem … Continue reading Kuba: ŠETNJA KROZ STARU HAVANU (6)

Cuba: OFF TO THE BEACH, CARIBBEAN STYLE! (5)

Cuban beaches are everything you heard about, and more! The island is located in the Mexican Gulf, its shores are splashed by the Caribbean Sea, so you can immediately picture - blue sky, beautiful horizon, crystal clear waters, white sands and that incredible turquoise sea color. Maybe a coconut-cocktail with the straw in it? Sure, … Continue reading Cuba: OFF TO THE BEACH, CARIBBEAN STYLE! (5)

Kuba: ODOSMO NA PLAŽU, U KARIPSKOM STILU! (5)

Sve što ste čuli o plažama na Kubi, tačno je. Ali ima još! Ostrvo se nalazi u Meksičkom zalivu, obale mu zapljuskuje Karipsko more, tako da odmah možete da zamislite široko nebo, prelep pogled na horizont, kristalno čisto more, beli sitan pesak i neverovatnu tirkiznu boju mora. Možda i poneki koktelčić u kokosovom orahu iz … Continue reading Kuba: ODOSMO NA PLAŽU, U KARIPSKOM STILU! (5)

Cuba: CHEERS, WITH A MOJITO OR TWO! (4)

Cuba has been famous for its rum since the 1500s. The rum pirates loved and drank so much was not the same as today's. Then, it was bitter and with high percentage of alcohol. Still, they did love to put sugar and few herbs in it. This mixture called draguecito or "little dragon" is probably … Continue reading Cuba: CHEERS, WITH A MOJITO OR TWO! (4)
