People make a city. Their energy can trigger a vibrant cultural scene or encourage a burgeoning tourist industry. Those same people can make or break your experiences when visiting for the first time. Every interaction, from ticket inspectors to people on the street leaves a lasting impression that could be recalled to others when returning home. The people of Belgrade could be this city’s greatest asset, having left their indelible mark on my first visit to Serbia.
I am not one to make New Year resolutions. All that talk about stopping smoking (I don’t anyway), joining the gym (I already tried that) or reducing alcohol (Hmm), it just doesn’t ring true for me. Until now, that is. As part of a new and positive approach, I am starting this blog. The World might not be a better place because of my posts but I want to share my opinions and insights on something that has made an impact on me and my life: Serbia and the Western Balkans. So, enjoy the trip and feel free to add feedback.
