On the Road Again (New Series Preview)

If there is one thing I haven't done in a while, then it's resting. It seems like one short trip is following the other, and with work closing in tightly over the week, these small getaways have become a real treat and pressure reliever.

One of those trips my friend Selma and I undertook yesterday was a field trip to Hutovo Blato. It is a nature and bird reserve located in southern Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is primarily composed of marshlands that were created by the underground aquifer system of the Krupa River.

Since 1995, Hutovo Blato has been protected as 'Hutovo Blato Nature Park'.


I am posting this single image as a preview (I am still editing the rest), and the two-part trip starts on Monday.
So please come back tomorrow for part one.

  22. Short adventures are fantastic in that you don't have all the preparations necessary for longer trips, it's just jump in the car and off! Will be back to see more Mersad.
