If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:

1.       About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments.

There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :)

2.       Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoroughly, is hike the hills and nearby villages and explore old architecture of the region. By architecture I don’t mean some grand villas but rather very charming old houses very unique to the region. I get the privilege of staying in one of those vintage homes. My great grandfather’s house is in the village of Kremna and is one of the most peaceful places to be. I still have many memories of visiting the house as a kid. My great grandparents still lived there at the time. Now the house serves more as a cottage. The walls of the house which are about a meter thick keep the house cool, if not cold, so no AC is necessary. Days are warm here but nights are very cool so you are guaranteed some of the most restful night sleeps. Top floor features all original windows which do require some refurbishing. Oh and did I tell you that there is even a traffic sign with my family name (in Cyrillic alphabet) signalling the turn to my village heheh. How cool is that! Also, If you’re lucky,  you may even catch a ride on a pimped up tractor!

3.       Nothing in this region is far when speaking in kilometer distance, but western Serbia is a very mountainous region and full of canyons and meandering roads, so 20km distance may take you a full houre to drive. It’s worth it though. So about an hour ride from Kremna and Drvengrad,  you will find a beautiful lake Zaovine. This is not a nature lake but it rather formed when a dam was constructed. This summer has been extremely hot so the water level is a little lower making the access to the lake a little rocky. On the other side of dam, on top of the hill, you will find restaurant Tarsko Jezero which has a terrace view to die for. Many tourists stop by to eat or at least grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the scenery. We camped at the top of the hill above lake Zaovine and waking up to this view was priceless.

Must read book!
4.       On the mountain of Tara, about a 30 minute ride from Zaovine, you will find village of Mitrovac. This village is known for mountain tourism and as Tara mountain is protected, you will find so much untouched nature, beautiful trails among coniferous trees and access to a lookout over Drina river canyon. You will want to stay there for hours, breathing in fresh air and all of the beauty of the canyon and its colours. A must-see!
5.       Lastly, just enjoy. Get back to nature, appreciate the peace it provides to you mind and body. Sit on the ground, feel the grass, let your eyes absorb all the beauties around you. You body and soul will thank you for it.

As for the outfits, I can’t fully call them that. One of my suitcases containing most of my clothes got delayed in Frankfurt so I had to work with what I had in my shoe suitcase and my carry-on. But it worked out anyway. I wore the white Forever 21 dress couple of times. My new Pink exercise leggings made for a great Yeezy inspired outfit when combined with the oversized sweatshirt, and the red light summer dress from H&M perfectly mixed with the greens and the blues of Tara mountain and Drina canyon. As for the shoes, I seem to be wearing these H&M slides with everything. They are just so versatile.

Hope you enjoyed these last two posts as much as I enjoyed writing them.
Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montr√©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…
