It’s been two weeks since I was in Sarajevo for a long weekend. It was a trip I will never forget but also one that I am still trying to put into perspective. I don’t think that will ever happen either. 🙂
Like I said in the title, Sarajevo is a special place where the people you meet carry with them such deep sorrow (I’d say remnants of the war that is still so present everywhere you go and look) but they also carry an immense joy and love for life as displayed in their easy smiles, joking and singing. A city that cannot be described and people who will welcome you with open arms and will see you leave with smiles on their faces and hopes of seeing you again – and you will hope that as well.
If you’re wondering how this trip came about, turns out I have distant family there (my father’s cousins) who were as eager to meet me as I was them. It’s the most amazing feeling finding family you never met before and realizing you are close and that family really means family.
I will leave you now with some photos from my trip. The one thing that amazed me though, the excellent rakija you can drink anywhere.
