When I told my dad I went to Serbia for a little weekend getaway his response was “you are the only person I know who goes to Serbia of all places for vacation”. This may very well be true, and I also did not think tourism was a major thing in Serbia. I am happy to say I stand corrected. Serbia is one of those place I would like to call a “hidden gem”. It has great weather, the people are extremely passionate and friendly, the cost of living is low therefore making everything affordable, the women are GORGEOUS and the nightlife is insane! Belgrade is actually ranked as one of the top places to party in the world. Yea, who knew, right?
All of the above are reasons why my friends and I decided to pay this place a visit and boy was it worth it. This will NOT be my last time in Serbia, thats for sure.
A few pictures I snapped riding from the airport to the city centre. Remnants of the war. This building as well as several others have not been fixed. This is kind of a harsh reminder of what this country has gone through. I couldn’t imagine what it would have felt like for that to have been my place of business or my backyard. I just thought this skeleton key looking thing was interesting. It was a bit bulky in my pocket. Taking a stroll down one of the walking streets in the city.We ended up at some random bar on a Wednesday night. They had a live band and everything. This young lady was very nice. She was so fascinated as to why I was in her country (as there are very few tourists here, let lone a Black American), so after much conversation I figured we should capture the memory.
Ribs were for lunch. Cost me about 5 USD. For the win! Mi compadres
I decided to scale a wall at the fortress. You cant tell how high I was but I was about 7 meters up, no ropes. Discussing the nights festivities. I thought they only had toilets like this in “The Godfather”. I was wrong. So it deserved a picture. Serbians love their meats and I can get with that! Our appetizers consisted of a various deli type meats, cheeses, and the dark brown pieces in the middle of the picture are actually horse meat. This dish they consider to be like a natural viagra. The main course had 5 different kinds of meat on it. The salad in the top of the picture had some sort of soft Serbian cheese on it. It had the consistency of a creamy feta. It was unlike anything I had ever had before so thats the best thing that I can compare it to but it was delicious! Cant go wrong with a Jack & Coke. At the airport on our last day. I was exhausted, dehydrated, and ready to get back home. Until we meet again Serbia…
