Coffee and Rakija.

Coffee and Rakija is a blog that shares my experiences of living in Bosnia and Herzegovina, an often misunderstood country, and introduces you to some of the interesting people I’ve met along the way, the food, culture, traditions, vibrant cities, towns and villages, as well as the stunning natural landscapes of my adopted home.

I am not a journalist, but I hope that my insights and observations on everything from food, history, art, customs, and daily life in this captivating part of the world will be interesting for you.

Why did I start this Blog?

Čardačani, the village where I live ⬆️

I’ve been publishing this blog (initially as a newsletter) for just over 2 years now.
Unfortunately, social media is no longer a place I really want to be. So Substack has replaced that for me.
I am seriously thinking about deleting my last “Hook” to it, which is my Instagram account.

I hope you enjoy reading, watching and listening to the content I am posting here.
