Why the hell did you stay here?

That's probably the question I get asked most by Serbian people.

A German, from the promised land where life is beautiful and perfect!?

Well, first of all, no. Second of all, since day one I have just felt home here. I first came to Belgrade for a short trip in May 2017, I fell in love with it, came again and eventually stayed. And I started writing travel guide books about the city and the surrounding country. You remember books? Those papery things with the sharp pages?

Anyhoo, after several years it was about time to create a digital (English language!) version of what I have seen, experienced and come to love in Serbia - a country travelers still don't seem to know about.

And that needs to change.
