Here I am, working in Eastern Europe and wondering if others out there would like to keep in touch in case you visit this beautiful region.
Always keen to catch up with English speakers who visit, enjoy a cool pint or two, and hear news of other places....
Anyway, I love it here in Bosnia, have started a business in tourism and am trying to inform the world just how safe and beautiful this region is!!!!
Stay safe, and remember...
...where ever you go, there you are....
Hello Hello! Welcome Ben Robinson!
I'm sure you will meet a lot of people here who have been and who will soon be travelling to that part of the world. I have never been to Bosnia but I Hope to visit eventually. Welcome to TP!
Hi, Ben! Welcome to Travellerspoint!
I like what you described about Bosnia:
"Bosnia, the undiscovered jewel of Europe"
Hope to see you around here!
Welcome to TP!
Love the reference to Buckaroo Bonsai - one of our favs!!!! (Do you have your own band too?)
A pint or two??? If you ever make it to the US - I think Beerman and I can set you up with some pretty good brews.
Anyway - welcome again and see you in the forums!
Welcome to TP, Ben!
I totally agree that Bosnia-H/Srpska are amazing places, and fantastic to visit.
Surprisingly laid back - now at any rate - really friendly people, and utterly stunning in the most part. I`ve been to Bosnia a good few times over the past few years, and love it there.
Your post and profile set off a distant "ping" in my memory, and i`m now fairly sure i have heard of you before. Unfortunately I`ve only been to Banja Luka once - earlier this year - but i definitely remember a couple of friends there talking about an Aussie that they used to work with/who they knew (i forget which) who left to start up his own travel company promoting the country, and am fairly sure it had come up even before i visited. Which all seems to tally a little too much for sheer coincidence [Am i right in thinking that you know some of the staff at the sadly now seemingly dying Oxsigen FM?]!
I`ll definitely be back at some point (although not for a while, as I`m currently in Japan on an overland RTW), and am rarely one to turn down a pint or so.
Continue to enjoy!
