Day 2, Belgrade

My Mum often asks me “what are you going to do there?” whenever I go somewhere new.

“Walk around and look at things,” is the inevitable answer.

(My mother probably thinks I’m mad, but is too kind to say so)

Sometime last year, I had decided that I really wanted to go places where I could walk endlessly without worrying for my safety.

Flemming and I have been in Belgrade for 2 days, and in addition to walking, it is also a feast for the eyes.

It’s a world away from the color of Guanajuato, where we’ve been for 2 months, but on the morning of our first day here, I wake up to facets, out the window of the apartment we’ve got for the next few weeks.

Good beginnings.

    Just looked up Belgrade and found your site! Have been itching to go back to Belgrade. Was there three times in the last two years and can’t wait to go back. Loved the simplicity of life there and easy going things were. Not to mention that you can eat and drink like a king for very little cash everyday! I must have sat an outdoor bar in Belgrade Fortress overlooking the Danube and enjoying a cold drink almost every single day that I was there. Missing it very much. Enjoy your stay!

      The riverside and the Fortress are amazing, particularly now that everything is spring-green and in bloom. Hope you get to come back soon and enjoy it all.
