"Look, there, you see those two pillars with a deer and a roe deer on the top, on opposite sides of the harbor entrance?

Have … Continue reading Rhodes: THERE STOOD THE COLOSSUS! (3)

Rodos: 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: TU JE STAJAO KOLOS! (3)

Rhodes: 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: JUST THE RIGHT VACATION TIME (2)

Rodos: 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: PRAVO VREME ZA LETOVANJE (2)

Rhodes: 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: THE EVER IMPOSING SUN GOD (1)

Rodos: 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: NAMETLJIVI BOG SUNCA (1)

Singapore: CABLE CAR TO A SMALL 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 - 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 this … Continue reading Singapore: CABLE CAR TO A SMALL ISLAND (9)

Singapur: ŽIČAROM DO MALOG OSTRVA (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 MALOG OSTRVA (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 heart to try. It sure is one nice visit … Continue reading Singapore: BREAKFAST WITH ORANGUTANS (8)
