Where I stayed
Majka's House

Flag of Serbia  ,
Tuesday, September 21, 2010

We were now Serbia-bound. The rusty JAT Boeing 737 was sketchy as hell (Kat you were right), but thankfully the wings stayed on for the whole flight and we arrived safely at the Nikola Tesla airport. Ivana's Majka (grandma) was nice enough to have a taxi waiting for us. Cale immediately loved Serbia, and found the random herds of goats along the highway and the wandering "gypo kids" amusing. As planned, we arrived for Majka's birthday and celebrated with champagne, a delicious Serbian feast and flowers.

One week later...

We're getting fat. Majka's cooking is fantastic. Thank god we are carrying around heavy backpacks for the next couple years. Oh yeah, did I mention the 2 dollar, 2 litre beer. Mmm, Jelen pivo. But we haven't just been gorging ourselves the whole time, Vrsac is a beautiful city and we have spent a lot of time exploring it.

And that leaves us where we are now, sitting in the cafe at the Villa Breg. A beautiful 5 star hotel that overlooks the whole city and plays wicked classic rock. It's well worth the long hike up the hill to get here. Our plan from here on are to explore Serbia for the next week or so, then head to Venice to catch a flight to Paris. We spend 2 days there before heading out to London to rip it up with Scotty, Gene and Nigel for a couple days. We literally just booked our flight to Bangkok, we arrive the morning of the 17th.
