Traveling is a state of mind.

Dani Puni Žutog Sunca, Muzike I Smeha

Volela bih da sam zapamtila više.

Eto tako se uvek osećam.

Uvek obećavam da cu pisati o putovanjima, da ću reći sve što mi je u glavi.

Dan se ispreči ispred mene.

Beograd se ispreči ispred mene.

Ja se isprečim ispred sebe.

Sve je trenutno bitnije.

Ali hajde da probam.

Probudila sam se u 4 ujutru, od nervoze pred put, kao i uvek. Krenuli u pola 7, stigli u 15h na obalu Istre, u Rovinj.

Eto, pišem.

Život U Slikama: Valensija & Benidorm II

(putopis jun i jul 2018 – drugi deo)

Dok se šetam, imam često istu sliku u glavi: umesto mobilnih telefona, ljudi u rukama nose televizore od 20 kilograma, stare telefonske aparate sa brojčanicima, velike fotoaparate sa stativima kao i razne druge stvari: kompase, časovnike sa sve kukavicom, zidne kalendare, albume za slike, aparate za merenje vazdušnog pritiska, flopi diskove, nezgrapne mape gradova, diktafone, beležnice od hiljadu listova, video kasete i audio kasete, digitrone, muzičke stubove i zvučnike, poštanske sandučiće i još koješta.

Korak Slobode: Valensija & Barselona I

(putopis jun i jul 2018 – prvi deo)

Nekada dani traju kao godine. Na putovanju naročito. Vreme se izdeformiše, zgusne, minuti postaju meseci i jutro naveče izgleda kao da se dogodilo nekada davno, pre više godina.

A čim spustim stopala na domaće tlo, čini mi se da je proletelo, da se su svi ti vekovi vremena dogodili nekome drugom, da su otišli prebrzo.

Vodič Kroz Mirni Haos Barselone

 Završni deo

Protesti su i dalje u toku na ulicama Barselone. Još uvek nepriznati Katalonci žude za svojom državom i prvo organizuju izbore da bi se za to izborili, a zatim stojički brane izborna mesta od policije i vlasti. Glasni su, ali i veoma mirni. Mi kao (i svi ostali) turisti ne hajemo mnogo, sve do poslednjeg dana. Mi želimo da se najedemo umetnosti i španskih prizora i skrećemo pogled na lepotu. Naivni smo. Ili ipak nema ni razloga za brigu? To sada nije ni bitno.

Jer.. još samo par dana smo ovde.

Otkucaji U Ritmu Barselone

Deo četvrti

Tog 27. septembra stojim i gledam kako ofarbani 74godišnjak trči, skače i pleše kao lud – i nimalo mi nije smešno već se naprotiv, divim. Njegova tri drugara istih godina, pleze se i podržavaju ga, usput se međusobno prozivajući. U poslednjih godinu dana, ovaj 74godišnji dečak je postao ćale po osmi put (iako je već nekoliko godina pradeda), kao i ovde prisutni njegov mlađi kolega koji je dobio bliznakinje za svoj 69. rođendan. Ipak, ove trivijalnosti nisu smanjile moju zadivljenost. Da, sva četvorica su milioneri. Ali mogli su da se povuku još pre 30 godina. Čak i 40. Zaista nisu morali da se glupiraju na sceni više.

Međutim, oni su Roling Stonsi. And the Stones just have to keep on rollin’…

No, da počnem ispočetka.

Valensija Na Dlanu

Deo treći

“Trebate pomoč?”

Upitale su jedne tople oči taman kada smo konačno pronašli centar grada, a onda ipak shvatili da smo na pogrešnom putu.

“Da!” uzviknula sam sa olakšanjem kao da nam je neko ponudio vodu a mi smo upravo prepešačili Saharu. “Da” rekla sam, a nisam ni videla ko me je to pitao, ali sam videla te oči koje su nas zainteresovano posmatrale i 5 minuta ranije, negde u gužvi. Ta dan je počeo davno, pre nekoliko vekova činilo mi se, i sad oko 20h, to jednostavno “trebate pomoč” izgledalo je kao ono što sam želela da čujem svih ovih dana u Valensiji.

Izgubljena U Valensiji

Deo drugi

“Nećete valjda da idete autobusom do Valensije?!” zabezeknuto je upitao moj prijatelj Katalonac, sa izrazom lica koji je bio na rubu infarkta usled ovog saznanja. Strpljivo sam mu obajsnila da nisam zainteresovana za avion i super-brzi voz i da je autobus “just fine”, a on je i dalje nepoverljivo bukirao kartu online s jednom podignutom obrvom, ponavljajući da li sam sigurna. Usput me je pitao šta ćemo uopšte da radimo u Valensiji “toliko dugo”, a ja nisam imala srca da mu kažem da ne mogu da sedim u Barsi 2 nedelje i da želim da vidim još nešto od Španije.

Beograd 1,2,3 – The Future Is Not Written

(preporuka: lagana knjiga, film za razmišljanje & joga za kod kuće)

Ležim na plaži i pod kapcima vidim svetlost sunca. Ispod mene je pesak. Uživam dok mi se kapi mora suše na koži. Uživam čak i dok mi se graške znoja skupljaju po čelu i ispod miške i lagano klize na peškir. Jer volim toplotu. I leto. I talase, i decu koja se prskaju, i suncobrane, i barke i njihove upetljane mreže i ribice koje grickaju stopala u plićaku. Kada otvorim oči ipak, nisam na plaži. Nije ni naročito toplo. U Beogradu je promenjivo oblačno, sa povremenim pljuskovima i grmljavinom. Ali leto je još tu. I dok se svi raduju jeseni i jedva čekaju da nazuju čizme kojih sam se otarasila tek prekjuče usled zimogrožljivosti, ja bih da sanjarim po ceo dan i nosim japanke i razmišljam na koju ću plažu sutra. Zato sam odlučila da ne popustim ovaj put. Ako je ostalo još 5 dana leta – slaviću još tih 5 dana i praviti se da mi nije hladno kad izađem napolje u kratkim rukavima. I čitaću samo lagano štivo i gledati limunade. U to ime, 3 preporuke iz mog (nedovoljno čuvenog i nepravedno zapostavljenog) serijala Beograd 1, 2, 3. Pa da uživate i vi u toploti 😉

Quick Escape To Nature – Top Serbian Spas

This is the perfect time of the year to visit some of the most beautiful Serbian spas as most of them are located in the natural environment, surrounded by forests, meadows and fields with lots of springs of thermal and mineral waters. They are a perfect getaway from the noisy city where you can relax any time of the year, and enjoy in sports, cycling, hiking, fishing or pamper yourself in some hot spa centers with massages, pools and saunas. Surroundings of Serbian spas are also beautiful with lots of lakes, waterfalls and mountains, so you can go sightseeing or get to know Serbian couture by visiting some of monasteries, churches, ethno houses or other historical spots. There are many spas in Serbia, any every spa has its own benefits, but today I will tell you about my 3 favorite spas and why I think they are great place to go to anytime of the year, and what you can do and see there. This is my personal choice, so feel free to leave comment bellow if you like some other spa better 😉

48 Hours In Belgrade

Ah, the magic of Belgrade! A place where you can dance until sunrise seven days a week, where the most beautiful women live and where you always feel like you’re home no matter where you’re from. Needles to say, Serbian capital is a perfect destination for anyone looking for an adventurous holiday, where hospitality crackles in the air and people are overwhelmingly friendly. So the good thing is that you don’t need your selfie-stick; passers-by will be more than happy to take your photo, guide you to a right direction and have a friendly chat.

First thing first – Belgrade is often called low-budget New York, because of its mix of cultures and colorful variety so there is a way to travel here with a small amount of money. That doesn’t mean that you cannot find posh places: if you want to spend, there is plenty ways to do it, starting with crazy nightlife, fancy restaurants and luxurious hotels. Today however, you only have 48 hours to explore Belgrade, so let’s get going!

Belgrade During Wintertime

There are a lot of “what to do in Belgrade” texts, but I think none of them focus on what you can do when the weather is really bad (or freezing cold like now). While most of the tourists (and locals) think it’s best to sit inside the warm house under a big blanket and a bag of popcorns, I think there are a lot of interesting things you can do for fun in Belgrade in the wintertime.

Here are my top 5 🙂

Guest Post: Poziv Iz Poljske

(guest post Sonje Ocić)

Objavljivanje tekstova na ovom blogu može vas odvesti u Poljsku 🙂 Što se upravo meni desilo. Saradnica Instituta za istočne studije u Varšavi naišla je na moje tekstove o elektronskom izdavaštvu koji su ovde objavljivani i pozvala me da učestvujem na 2. Industrijskom Forumu, koji je održan u poljskoj banji Karpač (Karpacz) od 8. do 10. decembra 2016. Tema moje prezentacije je glasila: The Digitisation of the Publishing Industry – a Step Forward or the Cause of the Crisis of Traditional Publishing Houses?

Beograd 1, 2, 3 – Pupin, FAF & turska kafa

(post o dešavanjima u Beogradu začinjen šarmom Milice Ristović)

Davno nije bilo reči o stvarima koje su zanimljive u Beogradu, a davno planiram i to da promenim, pa evo posta o Beogradu i u 2016 🙂 Ko nije upućen, serijal Beograd 1, 2, 3 govori o 3 interesantne stvari koje se u Beogradu dešavaju, a ovaj put tu je za vas jedna izložba, jedan festival i jedan kafić koji preporučuje Milica 🙂 Pa – da krenemo 😉

Montenegro Candy

(or travel scriptum: low season in Montenegro)

I love movement. In any form. I love walking. I like to be driven. And I absolutely love to drive. Anywhere. Anytime. In a rush hour. I don’t mind. On the contrary, it relaxes me. While people around me horn and call someone’s innocent mother names, I stop and think how nice it is to stop. Because how many times a day do you really have an opportunity to stop and look around you?

Postcards From Barcelona

(travel scriptum – Spain in September)

When was the last time you wrote one? Long time ago right (if you ever did)? Mandatory colorful paperboard that traveled thousands of miles just to get into the right hands, has been neglected and replaced by another (undoubtedly easier) forms of communications. On the other hand, it’s difficult to write about Barcelona. There’s no such thing that haven’t been written. That’s why I decided to send postcards. Intimate experience of the city, a short breath of Spain described with tiny handwriting on limited space. Without too many words, although not just: lots of warm greetings from, but sent from the heart, with kisses and intent. And there were couple of those… So, vamos!

Belgrade 1, 2, 3 – Souffle, Aprons & Fortune

(things to do in Belgrade – part three)

It’s hard to be objective in the things you like. It’s still your taste and things you like. So these are just my subjective proposals. And this time at (more and more regular) post Belgrade 1, 2, 3, you’ll find a great cafe, a YouTube show (in Serbian) and the most cheerful and colorful aprons in the whole world (that can be in English). So let’s begin 🙂

Belgrade 1, 2, 3 – Bow Ties, Martaan, Henri Matisse + Giveaway!

(what to do in Belgrade)

Belgrade in 3 steps. The 1, 2, 3 enjoyments: a space for whispers, a detail that catches the eye and the food for the soul. It happens so often, the best is left for the end, and it seems to me that Belgrade hides something different and new in its every corner. That’s how I’ve found beautiful bow ties, incredible exhibition and there is also one of my favorite cafes. So if you have no idea where to skittle these days, here are some suggestions on what to do 😉

Belgrade 1, 2, 3 – Esquire, Pržionica, Metamorphosis

(or things to do in Belgrade)

Sometimes it seems that Belgrade cleverly conceals its best pieces, or people just don’t notice how many good things there are to do in this city. For some time I’ve wanted to write this recommendation post, and now I think it will become a regular one 🙂 The topic is 3 things that are interesting in Belgrade, for example. bars, restaurants, plays, but even websites and books… For now, I chose something I was previously thinking about, so it should be interesting!

Great Weekend Getaway – Spa Morahalom!

(Weekend Getaway to Spa “Morahalom” near Szeged, Hungary)

Spa… Sounds so, so… Geriatric and boring doesn’t it?! Who goes to a spa anyway? Maybe some great-aunt on your mother’s side who injured her hip, right? However, things have changed. And if you realise that spa has become synonymous for wellness, it means that the wellness (fancy name for a spa) is one of the best ways to escape from Belgrade (or Serbia) for the weekend! Here you can relax entirely in the superb swimming pools with thermal waters and forget that there is a delay on the highway, screen of the computer, crowd on the bus, bill for mobile phone that hasn’t been paid yet… No, the Morahalom spa is all about you, and as you slowly go from one swimming pool to another, you can even afford great massage, eat Hungarian specialties at more than affordable buffet, eat delicious buns and pancakes and relax in the sauna or go back to childhood sliding down a water slide.

I Am Words

I am words I am someone’s words gathered on a paper that are out of paper, I am bunch of letters that I leave behind, I am just a trace in the universe that will disappear without a trace, that may become again, I am trapped in each book for the sake of my body built out of letters, you will not know me unless you read me and I will not know myself because I cannot read myself all to the end, deplete myself, because I am just that pathetic bunch of letters, always the same, fenced with 26 characters, in some language more, in some less, I am alone and always with someone, I am in love with myself too much, in my letters and pages and I have no boundaries, except those letters, but I travel through connections with sentences, I build myself with no connection to words, I am always staring at dot on i and three dots at the end of the thought that is endless and if you think this kick ass how will you only react to something that I write outside of myself and my letters, out of any relation to reality, how will you leave me and let me go forever when you look at this letters and you cannot stop reading me…
