Na lepom plavom Dunavu

Na lepom plavom Dunavu

Mnogi ribolovci kažu da bez Dunava nema ni života. Ova reka, druga najveća u Evropi, na svom putu do Crnog mora zapljuskuje obale mnogih gradova medju kojima je i Beograd. Tuda krstare mnogi alasi koji u njoj nalaze spokoj i mir. Naravno i ribu. Jedan od njih je i Vladimir Vasiljević. Ovaj gospodin, koji već 30 godina ima odličan izgovor kako da pobegne od vikend kupovine sa ženom je moj teča. Ovo je priča o njemu. Izraz njegovog lica dok prilazimo reci se menja eksponencijalno sa blizinom vode. Svakim novim korakom on je sve nasmejaniji i nasmejaniji. Zamislite da 30 godina radite neki posao sa istim žarom i entuzijazmom. Zar to nije prava sreća. Ulazimo u čamac koji je usidren u blizini Borče. "Sagni glavu da te ne raspizdi grana"- uvek daje dobre savete. "Miloše drži lanac dok ne upalim motor!!! 20 godina ne možeš da upamtiš šta ti kažem".  Problem sa ribarima je jer  za njih je svako nespretan. Šta god...

How to travel more than 10 000 kms around the Europe [Part 1/6]

How to travel more than 10 000 kms around the Europe [Part 1/6]

How to travel more than 10 000 km around the Europe After 4 years spent in Dubai, I decided to move again. From this point of view, it was probably a much harder decision than one when I moved from Belgrade. Life is unpredictable and you never know what is coming next. Last 3 Months in UAE I decided to use a period between switching jobs for planning an unforgettable trip. For those of you who are considering doing the same, I suggest starting planning at least 3 months before, since plane tickets are much cheaper. This is a story of the full process of travel from day 1 planning to last day of the trip. Importance of Planning I knooow that this is something that everyone knows but I need to point out again. Planning is the mother of everything. Every single date, every single transportation, accommodation and rest. I understand that it stress you out but if you start on time...

Enjoying coffee with SerbinDubai

Enjoying coffee with SerbinDubai

Having a coffee with  Serb in Dubai. After the first interview which you already saw here[ Interview with SerbInDubai ], guys from NasBiro and goForTV decided to make another since in the first one I was not enough representative. Apparently, viewers complained about my #salanastranu hairstyle so they took me to the hairdresser. Visiting this kind of institution is not always pleasant especially if you get a non-wanted massage [head massage -just for the record] - check the video. The questions I answered are related to things I miss the most. Don't worry I mentioned all of you but they cut it in video editing. To skip writing more check the video (the video is in the Serbian language): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWqF74yHIOw Also, check some of the newest blog posts from SerbinDubai: THINGS YOU NEED TO DO WHEN VISITING SERBIA INCREDIBLE INDIA 5 WAYS TO SPEND YOUR FIRST SALARY IN DUBAI!!!

Mornings in Belgrade: 7 things you can expect

Mornings in Belgrade: 7 things you can expect

1. People rushing to work and crowded buses, trams and trolleybuses. Skip public transportation if you can. Walk. The mystery no one can solve in Belgrade is: Where do all the all 75+ people go early in the morning? Why don't they sleep? Do they have some seriously important business they have to finish from 7 to 9 AM, during the worst traffic hour in Belgrade, that can't be finished when there's no crowd in public transportation? Probably we'll never know the answer to this puzzle.   2. Freshly baked pastry aroma coming out of the bakeries. Burek, fresh and soft rolls, pretzels, croissants, many different sorts of bread, because here we like eating a lot of bread and any kinds of dough. While in Belgrade you surely won't miss your breakfast. So Belgrade will make you even healthier, right? :) We recommend you try a simple breakfast: pretzel with a cup of yogurt! The combination of softness and sweetness of a pretzel spattered...

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia

Things you need to do when visiting Serbia A few days ago I had the opportunity to talk with one Spanish lady who is apparently a big fan of Belgrade and generally our culture. After few routinely generated questions like where have you been, which place you visited and rest, I noticed that most of her answers are focused on things, not on places. Finishing my 3rd glass of wine I start wondering what will be the things which make the best impressions on foreigners. Let's face it, our cities are beautiful but you cannot really compare them with the biggest European capitals. So, it can't be the landscape which drives them spending their yearly vacations in our place. It is something else. She mentioned that only reason for visiting Belgrade was because her friend invited her, otherwise she will never come. From here I realize the main thing - they come because of PEOPLE. I know that folks in homeland have different...

3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Nikola Tesla Museum

Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 in a small village named Smiljan. Since his childhood, he expressed great interest in science and, despite some opposition by his parents, he enrolled studies in Graz, where he studied all day long (except only 4 hours he used to spend sleeping). He traveled through Europe, he also studied in Prague, he worked in Maribor, Budapest, Paris, and Strasbourg, and in 1884 he went overseas, to the United States, where he, with short breaks, remained his entire life and accomplished things so revolutionary and futuristic that, even today, we can't understand the complete range of his greatness. Writing about his inventions here would be totally inappropriate, not just because we would need like a year for that, but also because there is this beautiful and a humoristic comic story about Tesla which made a lot of people explore Tesla's work and life: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla. We'll just stick to that that Tesla is probably the greatest...

Incredible India

Incredible India

In the heart of India Around 3 years ago my arse was fitting armchair in the suburb of Belgrade (Kumodraz city). The clock showed 4 PM and that was a sign that Tv channel needs to be moved to number 701 or the Travel channel. Approximately 5.1 times per hour there was a commercial about Incredible India. Spiritual, monumental place which is the homeland of 1.3 billion people never actually made a big impression on me. I was deceived by numerous viral videos of primitive people who harm each other with no reason. I was sure that my foot will never step on Indian soil. Three years later here I am, standing in a queue for eVisa at Indira Gandhi airport in Delhi. To be frank, I will never do that if there were not a lot of amazing Indian people in Dubai who convince me to try. Obviously, my mother wasn't convinced. A daily controller of my digestion tablets collection, she was the only difficulty I felt in...

Ultimate Belgrade Summer Guide

Ultimate Belgrade Summer Guide

Summer in Belgrade is hot. Temperatures are high, usually above 35°C, and city concrete almost starts to melt down under the Sun. The reason why you shouldn't worry about it is that Belgrade is built on the confluence of two large rivers, Sava and Danube, that help us cool down and that send us refreshing breeze. Your to-do list when traveling to Belgrade in the summertime can be almost limitless. Sometimes we feel like the only summer of double length can be enough to drink every coffee, every glass of wine, to soak every sun ray, visit every party. This is why you need to be precise about what you want out of summer in Belgrade. This is our little Summertime Belgrade guide! Belgrade Makes You Feel Like You're at the Seaside Did you know that Belgrade has its own seaside? :) It actually is how we call Ada Ciganlija - "More Beograda" or Belgrade sea. Ada is a river island on Sava that is incredibly well arranged so that you...

Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia?

Is it safe to travel to Serbia? We feel that most of the people who visit Serbia build a very positive opinion of our country. They like many different things, from architecture and monuments to people and food. However, the number of foreign visitors of Serbia, although increasing significantly every year, is still not on a level which people who have a nice opinion of Serbia would expect. Why is that so? We believe one of the main reasons could be - safety. Writing these lines, we are referring to all of our non-Serbian readers, and we would really appreciate to be corrected if we are wrong, but - to us it looks like the most of the world is still of the opinion that here either the war is still ongoing or that it has just ended and there are suspicious people who could rob, kidnap or otherwise harm somebody who comes from abroad, especially from the west. All we can say...
