Thats now already some 2 weeks ago, my ride from Germany to Serbia. Depending to my obsession for Ex-Jugoslav monuments, i planed the trip to make as much as possible pictures of monuments. I slept the first night in my car at Podljubelj, where there is a monument for the people working at the tunel between now Slovenija and Austria. They came mainly from the Koncentration-camp Mauthausen. (pict one) After i was slowly driving to Ljubljana, passing-by the monument in Drasgozce, (pict two) and Kamnik (pict three). I arrived in Ljubljana early enough to finaly make picts of the main monuments there. (pict four and five) After sleeping at Ivos place in Ljubljana i went on the next day to reach Kamensko Bijeli Potoci. but already at the beginning i took the wrong road and accidentaly i found Baza 20 in Slovenija (pict six). I reached Kamensko at the last sunlight but ...... they removed the monument ........ so i went on the fastest way direction Serbia. Trough Bosnia i managed to go as far as Samac, where slept again in my car and at 7 in the morning i took picts of the Monument-house of Mitar Trifunovic Uco (pict seven) .. finaly i had another nice surprise when i found Donja Trnova near Bijeljina. Not only that there was a well preserved Partisan graveyard, but i also found the house, where the first issues of Oslobodjenje where printed during the 2 Worldwar (pict nine)

I had a crazy and quite hard tour last weekend. A 900 kilometers through Serbia. Friday i went to Vrbas in the north, there i had an exhibithion. (first pict, Grandma with Grandson in Vrbas) From there i went on Saturday to Golubac, which is a 5 hours ride. There was a meeting of Zdravo da ste. (second and third pict) and an impression of Golubac (fourth pict). On sunday i went on to Rajac, a little village near the Bulgarian border, which is known for its vine. Deda Peric and his Grandson were calling me to drive some vine to Belgrade (around 700 liters fifth pict). Deda Peric always loves to pose ;) (eight pict) and he showed me a foto of his girlfriend, hes 82, shes 80 %) (ninth pict) ...... now i am still recovering, heading back to Germany this weekend.
