About me

Being a journalist for many years, I have enjoyed writing and editing stories regarding inner and foreign politics, I had an opportunity to work as a correspondent from the Middle East, became interested in geopolitical issues, etc.

But I have always loved to travel and was constantly on the move, curious about the world. Since being so used to writing, I wrote about my trips, even while I was on holiday, and did so in my spare time. Still struck by all those special encounters, people I have met, diversity of the world, joy, and impatience to see more, by the amazing scenes and anecdotes that I have already witnessed and that are yet to come – Glimpses, as I like to call them – I have decided to share the experience through this travel blog with all the amazement and gratitude that I feel.

In my opinion, the best way to talk about traveling is by telling a bunch of interesting travel stories and anecdotes which are always fun. Therefore, I will try to “pack” my trips into various stories.

These Glimpses of the World are mostly written from scratch, usually in both English and Serbian – since the latter is my native language, rich and wonderful to use in storytelling.

On the other hand, a lot of those travel articles that have been published in my country over the years (in Serbian national newspapers and web magazines), I am going to repost here, with the English translation accordingly and a few changes. Some I might write all over again, others perhaps “pack” in numerous Glimpses instead, in order to make them more accessible and easier to read.

So, the plan is as follows: I will post a series of travel stories on one destination that will last for a month or so, depending on the material I have. That way you will be able to get to know the destination in question as though you have traveled there yourself. 

Hopefully, we will go on a journey to meet the world together, and these Glimpses will be helpful to those who plan to travel or are just interesting to read to those who already share the passion.

Anyway, I am looking forward to telling you the whole story and am starting to feel impatient. Let me just fetch my tea and cookies, and I will start typing immediately! Hope you will enjoy the journey just as much.

See you in Glimpses in a bit,

Danijela, Belgrade/Serbia
