people generally don't know how much of an introvert I am. I like to think the beauty of it lies in how well I'm able to wear many hats. one night I might be visiting the strangest underground locales in town (good rule of thumb: the nightlife you can't see is usually the best). the next day I might be wandering alone armed with a book. or in bed browsing wikipedia 🤷🏽‍♀️ I've spent sunsets at kalemegdan solo with grocery store milk (i'm looking @ u moja kravica) and my journal, but I've also spent them with lots of people, doggos, beer, and ukulele jamming. I can go from full incognito to chatting up all the servers at the local joint. and I love both! this ability to socialize selectively and on my own terms is magical. being an introvert is my superpower💥 * this is my favorite place to introvert my ass off in belgrade. strolling, reading, journaling, getting some coffee, and people watching (I mean, this is where I saw a man running in nothing but jean boxers and flip flops 😅). part of what makes this city so perfectly paradoxical is how easy it is to hide and then go right back out into the open, all within a few square kilometers. hvalaaa beograd for being perfect for a person like me 💕 * * * #beograd #belgrade #serbia🇷🇸 #dunav #danube #dunavskikej #danuberiver #volimbeograd #beograd_u_slikama #bestofbelgrade #belgrade #signatureserbia #serbiatourism #visitserbia #serbia #belgrad #belgrado #womenwhotravel #europe #balkans #ig_exyu #travelphotography #doyoutravel #gltlove #adventuremore #photography #river #beautifulplaces #solotravel

FALLing in love with atlanta🍂🍁 * I'm seriously so happy to be in one place, for perhaps the first time in my life since I was 17. I'm a fleeting, wandering soul, and I've always known it. I've often questioned if I travel to run from things or towards things. maybe not traveling, not moving for once feels good because I finally feel like I can rest and let my hair down. atlanta is starting to feel like home, though my adjustment to this city was far less natural and way more lonely and jarring than expected. it took over a year and counting! I'm still getting used to it and still have rough periods. but letting my hair down is getting easier and easier. it's good to be in this beautiful city during my favorite season 😊 * * * #atlanta #sky #ATL #atlantaliving #fall #autumn #leaves #photography #travelphotography #gltlove #girlslovetravel #adventuremore #exploremore #fallfoliage #railroad #railroadphotography #atlantaga #georgia #fallingforfall #autumn🍁

hram svetog save/church of st. sava ~ the largest orthodox church in the balkans & one of the largest in the world ⛪ * slightly out of the frame: a lil pug playing in the grass with no care in the world, right next to a "NO DOGS ALLOWED" sign 😂 * this is what captures belgrade & serbia for me -- the simple pleasure of an evening stroll by the church or through kalemegdan, or of good food, rakija, family, and friends. I didn't expect to find so much simplicity and joy amidst the complex history I had heard about before I arrived. keep your mind and heart clear and open. you might be surprised ❤ * * * #beograd #hramsvetogsave #serbia🇷🇸 #slikesrbije #signatureserbia #beograd_u_slikama #belgradephoto #visitbelgrade #serbiatourism #visitserbia #volimbeograd #seetheworld #worldtravel #travelphotography #balkan_hdr #balkantour #balkans #europe_ig #europetravel #travelwithme #doyoutravel #solotravel #eurotrip #girlwhotravel #gltlove #darlingescapes #adventuremore #srbija #reflections

glavna železnička stanica/belgrade main train station 🛤 🇷🇸 * train stations are some of my favorite places, so here's a lil story about this one for my non-serbian friends... * while I was living in belgrade this year, I saw this station go from functional (not bustling by any means, but it was definitely in use by many, including me), to the verge of closing amidst protests against the belgrade waterfront project, to shuttered and eerily quiet -- a spot for the homeless and train spotters. it was a point of confusion when my best friend and I tried to catch a train here to montenegro and missed it -- forcing us to spend the day drinking litres of nikšićko to pass 12 hours until the night train 😅 it was also a point of sarcasm to add to every conversation with people in the city. it also became a place to watch the creepy industrial outcrops by the waterfront at sunset and muse a dystopian future 👽 * * * #trainstation #musings #belgradephoto #beograd #belgrado #beograd_u_slikama #serbia🇷🇸 #ig_serbia #ig_exyu #visitbelgrade #ig_europe #travelphotography #balkan #balkan_hdr #travelmore #balkantour #volimbeograd #solotravel #livingabroad #womenwhotravel #gltlove #doyoutravel #adventuremore #worldtravel #sofetravel #sheisnotlost #travelgram #wanderful_places

one of the *biggest* reasons I'm in love with europe? the streets and alleyways 💕 some of them are so tiny a person can barely fit, some really artsy and colorful, some decked out in beautiful antique balconies, some with roofs so varied in height, some sleek like this one, some wide and weathered, some covered in bullet holes... * the vast majority of them have their names plastered on little signs on the first building which line the beginning of the street. just looking for the signs and reading the names of every street, including ones that barely are streets, is one of my favorite parts. I repeat the names in my head and wonder if the sounds rolling off my tongue are the right ones (and even when I do know the language, it's good pronunciation practice). streets signify important people and places, ancient and recent sites of war and peace, and everything in between. streets are often the heart and soul of big cities, so when I stand on them, I can sometimes feel the place physically breathing 😍 * * * #bratislavacity #bratislava #slovakia #slovensko #slovakia🇸🇰 #ulica #staremesto #thisisslovakia #instaslovak #visitbratislava #visitslovakia #centraleurope #cestovani #milujemslovensko #travel #travelphotography #europetravel #europe_ig #beautifuldestinations #beautifulslovakia #travelwithme #doyoutravel #architecture #alleyways #solotravel #rainydays #womenwhotravel #gltlove #passionpassport

strč prst skrz krk * that is a czech/slovak tongue twister someone taught me. it translates to "stick your finger through your throat." it's also one of the only phrases I picked up. you're welcome 😅 * * * #bratislava #slovakia🇸🇰 #slovensko #visitslovakia #thisisslovakia #staremesto #cestovanie #bratislavacastle #bratislavskyhrad #hrad #architecture #castles_oftheworld #slovensko🇸🇰 #europe_ig #centraleurope #putovanje #travel #beautifuldestinations #doyoutravel #solotravel #sofetravel #girlswhotravel #girlslovetravel #womenwhotravel #darlingescapes #adventuremore #travelphotography #europetravel #instaslovak

trg bana josipa jelačića - the main square of zagreb ❤ * the man on the horse, ban josip jelačić, is a national hero in croatia due to his actions to preserve croatia's language, culture, and identity while a "ban" (governor/count) under the austria-hungary empire in the 19th century. though the statue was taken down in 1947 and through communist times, it was reinstated in 1990, when the fall of yugoslavia began. * * * #zagreb #trgbanajelacica #hrvatska🇭🇷 #croatia🇭🇷 #starigrad #evropa #putovanje #exyu #balkan #balkantour #europe #visitcroatia #europetour #europe_ig #explorecroatia #kroatien #travelgram #travel #gltlove #girlswhotravel #womenwhotravel #solotravel #backpackinglife #passionpassport #doyoutravel #wanderlust #travelphotography #travelwithme #globetrotters
