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)

Francuska: KAKO SAM NAŠLA VAN GOGA U ARLU! (7)

Još jedna stanica me je čekala na putovanju kroz Francusku. Nije bilo daleko od Azurne obale, a i računala sam da sam se taman dovoljno "ohladila" trčkarajući s jednog mesta na obali do drugog, jer je te godine, 2003. (kako sam pominjala u ranijim tekstovima), bilo neuobičajeno vruće u ovom delu Evrope, pogođenom tropski vrelim … Continue reading Francuska: KAKO SAM NAŠLA VAN GOGA U ARLU! (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)

Francuska: ŠARM GRADIĆA “NA MORU” (6)

Iako nisu tako popularni kao njihovi susedi Nica, Kan i Monako, mali gradovi Francuske rivijere zapravo su pravi odraz šarma ove zemlje. Čini se da su plaže na ovom delu Azurne obale prijatnije, čistije, manje "napadnute" sa svih strana, uličice deluju lepše, čak možete da sretnete i meštane i popričate sa njima uz čašu vina, … Continue reading Francuska: ŠARM GRADIĆA “NA MORU” (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)

Francuska: VOZOM DUŽ AZURNE OBALE (5)

Pre nego što sam otišla na Azurnu obalu, naravno da sam puno toga čula i pročitala o "poznatim imenima na plažama Francuske rivijere", ekskluzivnim odmaralištima i francuskim letovalištima, holivudskim zvezdama koje su se nekada brčkale u plićacima Kana, Nice, San Tropea, o princezi Grejs, Pikasovom odmorištu. Filmski festival u Kanu ili čuveni Kazino u Monte … Continue reading Francuska: VOZOM DUŽ AZURNE OBALE (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)

Francuska: ISPRED MONEOVIH VRATA (4)

Normandija, francuska provincija na severu zemlje, puna zelenila, cveća, dobrog sira i vina, belih krava sa crnim šarama, i nekoliko gradova koje treba obavezno videti. Na dva sata putovanja vozom od Pariza, na primer, nalazi se grad koji je postao poznat po tome što je u njemu spaljena Jovanka Orleanka 1431. godine. Ali, ovaj grad … Continue reading Francuska: ISPRED MONEOVIH VRATA (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)

Francuska: KAKO SAM PRATILA BODLERA! (3)

Pariz! Znate šta je grad bio za mene onda? Nadala sam se, zapravo, da ću možda naći nekakvu vezu, "stazu" prema svim onim umetnicima, koji su ovde živeli tokom 19. veka! Mnogo godina posle mog putovanja Vudi Alen je napravio film "Ponoć u Parizu" i bila sam ubeđena da "mora da mi je pročitao misli" … Continue reading Francuska: KAKO SAM PRATILA BODLERA! (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)

Francuska: TROPSKA VRUĆINA U PARIZU (2)

Da počnemo onda od glavnog grada. Prvo što mi padne na pamet vezano za to putovanje u Pariz iz 2003. jeste neuobičajena vrućina! Tačno je da je bio avgust, leto, ali ovaj deo Evrope je u to vreme zapravo bio pod uticajem nekakvog tropskog toplotnog talasa, zbog čega je vreme bilo jedva podnošljivo! Doduše, nije … Continue reading Francuska: TROPSKA VRUĆINA U PARIZU (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)

Francuska: PUTOVANJE KROZ VREME (1)

Kad god se setim prvog putovanja u Francusku, uvek se nasmejem, a i budem pomalo ponosna, da budem iskrena. Naravno da sam obišla sve ono što treba "obavezno videti u Francuskoj" i da sam se zaljubila u ovu zemlju, kao i mnogi pre i posle mene, ali sam takođe imala tako primamljiv "raspored" (sama sam ga … Continue reading Francuska: PUTOVANJE KROZ VREME (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!
