My name is Vitko.
I am Serbian, originally from Belgrade. In 1990, right after I had graduated in economics, I came to England to improve my English and to have fun before settling back into a regular life. But in 1991, my country – Yugoslavia – disappeared in a brutal and pointless civil war. I was thrown into turmoil that dramatically changed my life. So, I stayed in the UK and I am now also British. I have been living in London for the past 29 years.
I have decided to write a blog. There are so many blogs already on the internet so some people may ask why another one?
Everything has already been written about everything. But, my blog will be about my experiences and in that respect, it will be unique.
I will write about my travels, but also about good food and healthy nutrition, about things that I consider important for balanced life and sane mind. I’ve given up my corporate life, that’s no longer for me. I want something different in life now.
Although I’ve already travelled a lot, my plan is to continue travelling, as much as possible. There are still so many places that I would like to visit and see how people live there, to experience local cultures and learn about them through their historical heritage.
But, I am not going to travel full-time. Rather, I will go and come back and thus give myself the possibility to absorb impressions and write about them in my website. There are also other things that I want to do, which I consider important for my healthy life and sane mind. I want to be with people that I cherish, with my good friends. Additionally, whenever I’m not travelling, I go to the gym on a regular basis especially because I know that it’s hard to keep fit when I am away from home.
I am old enough and I believe with enough experience and wisdom to be able to perhaps offer some interesting information and inspire people to venture into the world.
I regard my life as a continuous journey, with good and bad that comes along the way … it really is My Forever Travel!
