Leaving Serbia

Leaving Serbia

Looking across the Danube from the Belgrade Fortress

It took a little effort to get into Serbia, with a bum steer* from a bus company and Novak Djokovic’s 2021 Australian Open debacle nearly derailing my attempts.

But after a shaky start I have enjoyed my time here in the largest of the former Yugoslavian countries.

The House of Flowers, the mausoleum of Josip Broz Tito, World War Two partisan leader and ruler of Yugoslavia from 1945 to 1980

However the time has come to be leaving Serbia. From here I’m going to cross the border into Bosnia and Herzegovena, so I’ll let you know what I what I find.

Until then bear in mind this Serbian proverb:

‘Build the barn before you buy the cow.’

Wise words.
