By the time I finally made it home from my first ever Belgrade Splav experience, it was somewhere around 7am. With only a few hours until I had to meet the owner of the private apartment Peder and I had reserved for the weekend, I set my alarm for 9:45, took a quick “nap,” threw on my backpack, and rushed across town.

I arrived 10 minutes late, still intoxicated from the endless bottles of free wine the night before. I really hope she didn’t notice.

The apartment was everything I could’ve wished for – spacious, comfortable, well-furnished, and fantastically located: just one block from Silicon Valley and right across the street from a huge supermarket. It had free laundry, internet, and even a hi-fi soundsystem – several bonuses I certainly wasn’t expecting.

So thanks (?) to my cozy new surroundings, I ended up spending nearly all of Friday sound asleep in bed – recharging my batteries until Peder’s arrival somewhere around 11pm.

As it turned out, he too would be starting the weekend after a long sleepless night…spent studying for his last upper-division biochemistry exam of the semester. He’d brought his luggage to the test and left straight for the airport. Yet despite the understandable exhaustion, after just a couple hours catching up and getting settled he managed to pump his energy level back up to 10. We grabbed a cab straight for the river. Destination: H20, one of Belgrade’s top three splavs, where Jeca and her sister had already gone ahead to reserve a table and await our arrival. It was our first night out in Belgrade – and our reunion after a full year of hard work at home with no international travel whatsoever.

(…well, for me at least. Peder did take a quick trip to India and Thailand last spring πŸ˜› )

Yet for such a well-known club, I have to admit it was a bit disappointing. Not because it was boring; on the contrary, it was so full of people you scarcely knew where to go. And not because they were unfriendly; the vibe in fact felt quite nice. It was because of the soundsystem. The volume was so over-the-top that it made any type of social interaction pretty much impossible – nobody could say even one word to each other. Ten minutes after our arrival we found ourselves out front deliberating on where to head next. “Another splav, perhaps?”

Well, wouldn’t you know it, the rain had once again started pouring down – and since we were a ways upriver from the “main” splav area, we decided to head straight back to the apartment for a more laid back evening of drinks and hookah.

Sometimes you just can’t beat a little bit of comfort πŸ™‚ And even though it may not’ve been the “big night out in Belgrade” we’d initially planned, it was still loads of fun. The four of us stayed up partying until somewhere around 10am.

  10. Well, if u login with ur facebook account when leaving comments it’ll automatically use your profile image as your avatar πŸ™‚

    Once you’ve done it once, I can go back and change your other comments so they recognize your account.

  11. I’ve tried but don’t allow me πŸ™ always write error πŸ™ i really don’t know why… But it’s ok, will try again other time.

    Ya know what is interesting lol this flag cuz it was of Yugoslavia and now is just Serbia so is different. I don’t mind at all πŸ™‚ but i was lil bit surprised πŸ˜€ …And this what ya have: “select language” lol when ya select Serbian ,translation is so silly πŸ˜€

  12. >>Ya know what is interesting lol this flag cuz it was of Yugoslavia

    Weird – it does geolocation based on your IP address, perhaps if it can’t find where you are specifically, but it knows you’re *somewhere* informer Yugoslavia, it’ll put that. For example, if you see Okpulk’s flag on this post: here, it’s correct, right?

  13. >>I’ve tried but don’t allow me πŸ™ always write error πŸ™

    What does it say specifically? That’s weird, I have dozens of people login with it every day, without an issue…and I didn’t get any failure notifications from the login plugin, either. What’s the “error”?

  14. Write like this: Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in…

  15. “Weird – it does geolocation based on your IP address, perhaps if it can’t find where you are specifically, but it knows you’re *somewhere* informer Yugoslavia, it’ll put that. For example, if you see Okpulk’s flag on this post: here, it’s correct, right?”

  18. Oh sorry Peder now i understand πŸ˜› Ya don’t want to know what he thing about at night LOL

  19. >>Write like this: Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in…

    Ohh, that actually maybe a bug in my login script! One or two other people have reported it, but I’ve never been able to reproduce the problem. Could you please try again? I added some debug code so it should hopefully email me details of the problem…

  20. >>Yes i saw that, but this guy Branko have Yugoslavian flag too

    Well…the one on Okpulk’s post looks like the current one on Wikipedia!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flag_of_Serbia.svg

  21. “Ohh, that actually maybe a bug in my login script! One or two other people have reported it, but I’ve never been able to reproduce the problem. Could you please try again? I added some debug code so it should hopefully email me details of the problem…”

    I did it now but still is the same πŸ™ will try tomorrow again many times, will try all day… cuz now i am so tired, just go back from city plus was on some motobike show almost all day πŸ˜€ I hope that will work tomorrow for me…

  22. Can u send me a copy of the whole message you see? It should be reporting a line number.

    It probably won’t work until I fix it, i’m pretty sure I have a bug…

  23. Well…the one on Okpulk’s post looks like the current one on Wikipedia!

    Yeah that is the Serbian flag πŸ˜€ White eagle with two heads, color: red, blue, white with symbol 4 C (English S). That means Samo Sloga Srbina Spasava (English: Only Unity Saves the Serbs) πŸ˜€

  24. “Can u send me a copy of the whole message you see? It should be reporting a line number.

    It probably won’t work until I fix it, i’m pretty sure I have a bug…”

    K, wait a sec.

  25. Huh? But u just said “Yes i saw that, but this guy Branko have Yugoslavian flag too” ! πŸ˜›

  26. Ya have PM on FB πŸ™‚

  27. “Huh? But u just said β€œYes i saw that, but this guy Branko have Yugoslavian flag too” !”

    Yes cuz Branko is Serbian name so must be Serb πŸ˜›

  28. Lol nevermind…u just said “he has a yugoslavian flag”, but then later u said it’s the correct serbian flag πŸ˜› I think we’re having a language barrier here tho πŸ˜›
