Belgrade: Perfect union of Sava and Danube Rivers

I had the pleasure of visiting one of the most beautiful capitals of the Balkans in April 2019. Although the meaning of Belgrade (Beograd) is ‘white city’, I found the city quite colorful. We stayed at a hotel (Masion Royal) on Knez Mihailova, one of the oldest landmarks and the main pedestrian street in Belgrade….

Sarajevo – Last stop of 2018

In mid-December of 2018, I visited Sarajevo, one of the underrated but well worth a visit cities of Balkans. 3 Ethnicities and 2 Presidents To me, the most shocking information about Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) was that they had a bicameral (with 2 separate assemblies) legislature and a three-member Presidency composed of a Bosnian, a Serbian…

Amsterdam

I visited the capital of the Netherlands in August 2018 with 10 teenage kids from Kosovo. It was a business trip for me as my duty was to take these students to a one-week summer school in the Science Park of  University of Amsterdam. Even this campus was startling for me. We stayed at a…

Triple Treat: Prague – Vienna – Bratislava

We had a short but lovely trip to see these European cities and their famous Christmas markets in December 2017. We started our journey by flying from Skopje to Memmingen, Munich with Wizzair which we appreciate a lot for its cheap and convenient flights. From Munich we drove to Prague in a super cool (rented)…

Brezovica on Sharr Mountains

We’ve been discovering Kosovo’s beauties since the last year. As winter has arrived, we wanted to spend a weekend on those famous Sharr mountains. On Sharr mountains, Brezovica has come up as the answer. It is a lovely settlement known for its ski resort. When we went there, it hadn’t snowed yet so we enjoyed…

Selimiye, Marmaris

Turkey’s Aegean coast is magnificent and Selimiye is a great sample of it. It is untouched, calm, authentic and peaceful as it is not that easy to reach for many tourists. We followed the road from Marmaris to Bozburun and arrived there after 45 km. Selimiye is famous for its crystal clear water.  First we…

Peja/Pec – Kosovo’s Natural Beauty

After a long break, I would like to write about Kosovo’s greenest and naturally the most beautiful city, Peja. In every daily visit we visited somewhere new there. The downtown is small, cute and important as it is the hometown of Majlinda Kelmendi, the 2014 Judo champion of the world. It has narrow streets, old…

Munich in 3 Days

Munich, (German München) the capital of Bavaria Land, is a city famous for its quality of living and of course its Octoberfest. Luckily, we have friends who live there and they showed Munich’s beautiful places to us as much as they can in 3 days. First of all, we learned that Munich means ‘home of…

Honeymoon in Singapore and Thailand

– Singapore We went to Singapore and Thailand for our 10-day honeymoon on Dec 25. It was a long way but it was worth every minute. We had read that it was dry season there from the end of December to February; however, it rained for 10 min a few days. We liked its rain,…

(Peaceful) Tirana, Albania 

While living in Kosovo, it’s our goal to explore the Balkan area in depth. We are starting with the common trips now but in time we hope to discover hidden treasures here. Anyway, we visited Albania’s capital Tirana last weekend and I can say that it was a little surprise for me as I didn’t…
