Banja Koviljača

Royalties from the sales of belgradestreets in 2015 were donated to the orphanage for abandoned children, ‘Dom za decu Vera Blagojevic’ in Banja Koviljača.

I was left speechless by the two pictures that the children provided to me as a thank you.

In turn, I thank everyone who has purchased copies of my book, and my publishers at Komshe for helping make this possible.

 

airport books…

One freezing cold day in January 2011, I arrived at this airport, tired and anxious about the future

I had no idea how much my life would change because of this city, and the people who live and work there

The book was a lucky break

I will never be able to to give back what the city and the people who live there gave to me but I will never stop trying 

And thank you to Komshe for all your support 

  

thank you Komshe and all who have purchased the belgradestreets book

With the help of my friends at Komshe all royalties from sales of my book belgradestreets will now be donated to the fund to help victims of the tragic floods in Serbia.

The heroes of this time are the people of Serbia who have come together with their neighbours to help those who are suffering.

With no concern for their own safety, or their own daily problems, they have selflessly and tirelessly worked to help those in need.

And they are still doing so and need our help now.

I would like to say a very special thank you to Komshe and every person who has bought a copy of my book and so made it possible to help in this way.

sometimes dreams come true

September 2012, marked one year of belgradestreets.

This post is a thank you to those good people at Komshe who have recently published my book, belgradestreets, which features images taken from this blog.

I would particularly like to thank Branko Andrić, the Managing Director of Komshe d.o.o. for backing the idea, and taking the book to market, Ivan Grujić for his design work, Dimitrije Stamenković for his work placing the books in stores across Belgrade, and everyone at Komshe.

And a special thank you to Zafiris Lampadaridis whose chance encounter with my blog in its early days, led to a cup of coffee…that gave birth to the idea for a book.

A moment I never imagined would be possible.

I am very grateful to Komshe for their support and confidence in belgradestreets.

Their guidebooks have provided much inspiration and much-needed background as I have explored belgradestreets.

I commend them to you.

Thank you for reading, liking and commenting on my posts. And my apologies for the rather self indulgent nature of this one!

It has been a wonderful journey and it is far from over.

I am looking forward to continuing to share belgradestreets with you.
