WEEKEND IN SERBIA: Zlatar and Uvac National Park

There comes a moment when one would gladly escape the city and all that concrete and hide among dense trees reflecting against water surface, somewhere where it’s possible to breath in and out, where intact landscapes leave a man speechless.

WEEKEND IN SERBIA: Iron Gate, the Roman road

Djerdap Gorge (or the Iron Gate) is the place in Serbia I have visited by bus with the group of tourists, by boat cruising along the Danube River, and by car while driving there myself few times.

France: FOUND VAN GOGH IN ARLES! (7)

There was one more stop to do while in France. It was not that far from the French Riviera and I have figured that I did "cool down a bit" hopping from one place on the coast to the next, since it was that year when this part of Europe was unusually hot, being hit … Continue reading France: FOUND VAN GOGH IN ARLES! (7)

France: CHARM OF VILLAGES “SUR MER” (6)

Although not that popular as their neighbors Nice, Cannes or Monaco, smaller towns along the Côte d’Azur are actually the true reflection of French charm. Beaches are more pleasant, clean, less crowded, streets seem prettier, you can even meet a local at the cafe (not just tourists) and have a glass of wine in the … Continue reading France: CHARM OF VILLAGES “SUR MER” (6)

France: FRENCH RIVIERA HOPPING (5)

Before going to the Côte d'Azur, I have heard a lot about it, reading about "the famous names on the French Riviera beaches", exclusive resorts, Hollywood stars who once got wet in shallow waters of Cannes, Nice, Saint-Tropez, about princess Grace, Picasso's retreat. The Film Festival in Cannes or the Casino in Monte Carlo are … Continue reading France: FRENCH RIVIERA HOPPING (5)

France: KNOCKING ON MONET’S DOOR (4)

Normandy, French province in the North, full of greenery, flowers, good cheese and wine, white cows with black spots, but it also houses few towns not to be missed when in the region. It is a two-hour train trip from Paris and you will get into town that became well known as the place where … Continue reading France: KNOCKING ON MONET’S DOOR (4)

France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)

Paris! You know what it was for me back then? I was actually hoping I would find some "link" to all those French artists who lived there during the 19th century! Years after my journey Woody Allen has made that Midnight in Paris movie, and I always thought that "he must have heard me thinking" … Continue reading France: GOING AFTER BAUDELAIRE! (3)

France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)

So, let me begin with Paris. My first memory of that journey in 2003 is related to the unusual heat! Sure, it was August, but that part of Europe was actually hit by some tropical wave that made the weather - unbearable! That could not slow me down, of course, and I was ready every … Continue reading France: TROPICALLY HOT PARIS (2)

France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)

Every time I remember my first travel to France, I always smile and feel a bit proud. Sure, I did see all the landmarks and fell in love with the country, but I also had such an alluring agenda (made one myself!), that I would probably do all over again if I were to visit … Continue reading France: A VINTAGE JOURNEY (1)

One poetic trip to FRANCE!

It's that season again when people think about traveling, planning their holidays, going somewhere to relax and forget about their daily routines back home. And "Paris is always a good idea", right! Remember those Audrey Hepburn words from Sabrina movie? Oh, Miss Hepburn was so right! If you are into vacations with a lot of things … Continue reading One poetic trip to FRANCE!

Lisbon: A FADO FAREWELL (7)

Once again (as I did in Barcelona with flamenco previously), I left the Fado Theater Show for my last day in Lisbon. Did know few things about fado, heard some songs, but I was surprised by its outspread in the city. It seemed that every café or restaurant hosted some kind of "fado-night special". And … Continue reading Lisbon: A FADO FAREWELL (7)

Lisbon: STRICT, YET MISCHIEVOUS (6)

Wanted to write the Lisbon story in chronological order as I often do, but it was just impossible. Every plan I had for the particular day – to visit this and that and leave other "this and thats" for tomorrow, just couldn’t "hold water". Because when ever I take that "planed route", something comes up … Continue reading Lisbon: STRICT, YET MISCHIEVOUS (6)
