Beating the tourists

No, the title of this post is not a sport in Belgrade.

I’ve been thinking a lot, and the whole group has been talking, about how great it is that we have come here now, before this place really gets ‘discovered’, especially by the hordes of English stag parties who seem to be tearing through Prague and Budapest.

We have no doubt that much of the uniqueness of this place will slowly be diluted over time as it becomes so much popular. But it’s fantastic to have come here before that happens, and to see so much of it untouched.

You see the younger population walking around so westernised/homogenised and you can’t help but wonder if one day all that makes our cities special and unique could gradually be eroded.

This has been a great experience so far, and we all picked a great time to see this amazing part of the world.
