Travel Report: St Mark’s Church, Belgrade.

St Mark’s Church, Belgrade. August 2019. Sladja and I had had a fantastic few hours exploring the sights of Tasmajdan Park.

Travel Report: Tasmajdan Park, Belgrade.

Tasmajdan Park, Belgrade. August 2019. I’ll never forget my first summer in Belgrade. It was the early days of my relationship with Sladja and there was a palpable sense of excitement and expectancy between us. In fact, I had come to the Serbian capital so that… at long last… we could finally hang out. An […]
