Eurotrip – Sarajevo, 11 November 2013

I would have liked a good night’s sleep but unfortunately we’re in the centre of the old town. Which in this case doesn’t mean drunks, it means dawn prayer calls from the mosque right opposite our apartment. Oh well. After … Continue reading

Eurotrip – Sarejevo, 10 November 2013

We packed up and waited for the apartment owner to arrive – he ended up sending his father, who came half an hour late and didn’t speak English, but managed to be incredibly friendly towards us. I’d already bought bus … Continue reading

This was one of the better days on the trip. We booked an Underground Tour of Belgrade with Get2Serbia, and it turned out really well. We were the only people on the trip (the guide said that sometimes he’s had … Continue reading

Another slowish day in Belgrade. We visited the Tesla Museum, which was interesting but really only worth a short visit. They have a couple of interactive exhibits where they generate high-voltage electricity using Tesla’s own devices, and you can see … Continue reading

Eurotrip – Belgrade, Serbia, 5 November 2013

Eurotrip – Novi Sad, 4 November 2013

Not the most successful of days. We plan a walk in a park followed by some more time at the fortress. We end up taking a long route across the river, I get vertigo on the bridge and it’s fairly … Continue reading

Eurotrip – Novi Sad, 3 November 2013

Sorry to leave Subotica, or at least our hotel, behind, we head off to Novi Sad, best known as the site of the (mostly) electronic music EXIT Festival. We’re travelling by train, not a great idea in most of central … Continue reading

Eurotrip – Subotica, Serbia, 2 November 2013

It’s getting a bit “another day, another country” at the moment – not quite how I’d envisaged things (“let’s go slow, stick in one place for a while and use it as a base to see other countries”).  It is … Continue reading
