Travelling in November has become sort of a ritual, one that we really enjoy as a couple. Considering that this summer I didn’t get enough rest, this was a much needed escape. This year’s destination was the capital of Serbia, the city of Belgrade, where we spent six days. As always, the cold weather hit me hard during the first day, so I didn’t take any decent photos, but I did manage to make it up during the rest of our stay.
Without further ado, here’s Belgrade through my eyes. Or my lens.
A little treat before we begin.
I really dislike to-do lists and new year’s resolutions, so I consciously avoid them. Especially when it comes to things that I enjoy doing in my free time, such as reading and watching films, I cannot and I don’t want to limit myself. When everything else in my everyday life is full of deadlines, time schedules and restrictions, I find considering pleasures as chores almost a barbaric way of thinking. So today, not having set any particular resolutions for 2016, I can reminisce this year light-heartedly, without worrying whether I “managed what I had to”, or not.
Since I really enjoyed last year’s post, I decided to keep the same format. The basic difference is that, this year, there are also photographs to enhance my 2016 highlights:
- The DOME, Experience «Traces» installation which I visited in March.
- My trip to florescent and always nostalgic Corfu, in May.
- My camping days at Kato Samiko, in August.
- My succeeding in my MA’s entrance exams, in September.
- Our trip to Sofia, in mid November.
- A job that, if nothing changes, will start soon.
I shall keep the same ending phrase as last year, since it still expresses how I feel: “I do have certain resolutions for the year to come but they can be summed up to this: create as many beautiful memories as possible.”
I wish you all a very, very happy 2017!
I think I love travel posts almost as much as travelling itself, both for reliving the experience and for sharing it!
Lets get to the point: from Nov 16 to Nov 20 me and my bf visited Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. About a month ago I was looking for cheap flights for this period, since I already knew that my uni classes would be cancelled, and a trip to Sofia seemed to be the perfect opportunity: great travel schedule, amazing prices and a beautiful city waiting to be discovered!
Day 1, Nov 16
We left home early in the morning, since our flight was at 9 am. Although nobody enjoys an early wake, this meant we’d have a whole day in front of us to stroll around…
[…] Since my July recap started in reverse, what’s best to end it other than its full moon?
