19 | Recap

12:03:00 PM

I hate looking back but i love doing recaps. And since my 19th birthday is tomorrow, i think this is a right time to look back at the last 365 days (even though studying and preparing for exams schedule is pretty hectic). Here are some of my favorite photos i took (in no order).
P.S. If you're interested in seeing more of my photos, make sure to follow me on instagram :)

Sunset in Herceg Novi

July / Herceg Novi, Montenegro. We used to come back from the beach and, before we start getting ready for a night out, turn on the music and stop to admire sunset (at least i did). Happy and carefree times. My favorite song from that period was High hopes by Pink Floyd. The grass was greener, the light was brighter, the taste was sweeter.. The nights of wonder, with friends surrounded.. The dawn mist glowing, the water flowing, the endless river...

Forever and ever. Fog


November / Belgrade, Serbia. And now let's come back to the real life. Early mornings, my arms hurting from ton of books and other stuff i need for university, weather that makes you miss your bed and coffee that you're trying really hard not to spill. Welcome to student's life :)
In Stockholm

September / Stockholm, Sweden. Me looking at my new home (just kidding - or am i). First i was kinda disappointed when we decided to go to Stockholm instead of Amsterdam, as we originally planned. But when we came here i completely fall in love with this city.
Budapest, Hungary

August / Budapest, Hungary. (*Budapest by George Ezra softly playing in the background* ..can i make it more cliche? Well yes). Second trip last year. Short but i had such a good time even though a lot of people who are supposed to work with tourist hadn't mastered the mystery skill of knowing basic English.

 September / Stockholm, Sweden. Fun fact: I'm afraid of heights. But i love stunning views like this so i force myself to get over it. And could stare at this for hours. Seriously. 
End of high school

May / Belgrade, Serbia. So i graduated high school this year and this was our last day. (If you're not from Serbia: here, on the last day of high school, party is held, each generation chooses 'their' song (and plays/sings it uncountable times), paints its own graffiti in the school yard and then everyone jumps in the (nearest) fountain).
Mum's painting

 June. Me and my mum's painting. I love this picture. I don't know what else should i say.
Saint Sava's church from the bus
February / Belgrade. One picture from the bus. My city is not considered a pretty capital, but you shouldn't compare it to the Paris or London or other cities. Because Belgrade is a soul, rawness and history and not its appearance (it was ruined too many times).
Belgrade is not in Belgrade, as Belgrade, actually, is not a city, it is a metaphor, a way of life, an angle of looking at things“ - Momo Kapor
Train station in Novi Sad

July / Novi sad, Serbia. 04.40am at 04:40am. After Exit festival, catching a train, our legs are hurting from dancing all night, cheeks are hurting from laughing and we need to find the right train and somewhere we can eat (shops at the stations weren't open).

Kings Of Leon in Budapest
 August / Budapest, Hungary. This year was a festival year for me. I attended Exit, Sziget and Beer fest Belgrade and was volunteering on two movie festivals. Loved the experience. There's just something in the festival's atmosphere. On the picture are Kings Of Leon performing Closer a.k.a. my all-time-favorite song by them.
My Belgrade


It was summer so i have no idea what day it was / Belgrade, Serbia.
"It's all about coming back. From one point on Earth long, depart and arrive again. Without that point you're connected with, you wouldn't love it and you wouldn't love the rest of the world, because you wouldn't have anywhere to depart from, because you wouldn't be anywhere. And you're nowhere if that point is all you have" - Meša Selimović

  11. Firstly happy birthday, secondly, thank you for sharing so much of your life with us! I have never been to Serbia and it sounds really interesting. Indeed, Belgrade sounds a bit like Warsaw, where half my family is from, in that it is so much more about the history than the beauty. I have only been to one music festival, but Kings of Leon also played Closer! I love that song too.

    Thank you for sharing so much of life in Serbia!
