Welcome to the this edition of This Week in the Balkans
One of the significant developments is the launch of the "Travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina" podcast, co-hosted by Tamara and me. This podcast focuses on providing insights into the country, sharing things to see and do, and delving into the rich cultural background. It complements the broader scope of "An Englishman in the Balkans" podcast, where we explore a variety of topics related to the region.
⬆️ The latest Podcast Episode ⬆️
In the upcoming episodes of "An Englishman in the Balkans," we have some exciting guests lined up.
Please excuse me if I mentioned some of the following in the pervious post but the podcast production plan has really started to take shape.
I'm particularly thrilled about interviewing Božo Vrećo, the renowned Sevdalinka singer. Božo is highly sought after and has graciously agreed to join us. We'll delve into his journey as a musician, his experiences traveling the world, and his insights into Sevdalinka, the traditional music of Bosnia-Herzegovina. ⬇️
Additionally, I'll be sitting down sit with Jelisaveta Gluvić, my neighbour (and an accomplished violist) who has a deep appreciation for the United Kingdom. ⬇️
She'll share her experiences as a musician and shed light on what it's like to leave Bosnia-Herzegovina and study abroad.
We're also excited to be bringing you a mini-series featuring Mark Whitfield, an Englishman who moved to Croatia with his wife, Gilly, and embarked on launching a glamping buisness. Mark will share his journey of settling in Croatia, setting up a business, and navigating the unique challenges and bureaucratic hurdles.
As well as all that, we'll be chatting with Micki Regulić, an Australian lady who returned to her family's roots in Srbac. Srbac is not too far from us here in the village. Micki has built her own house near Srbac and will provide insights into the experience of coming back to her ancestral land after spending only limited time here previously.
In addition to these captivating interviews, we'll explore topics such as the healthcare service in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the digital space and independent media, and we are even planning on a visit to a unique pastry shop in Banja Luka that creates creative and delectable treats, including golf ball-shaped desserts.
Alongside our podcasting developments, Tamara has been hard at work developing our apartment rental website, which showcases what we offer to those looking to have a comfortable and convenient base for a holiday in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
You’ll be the irst to know when that site is LIVE.
But in the meantime ⬇️

Daily Micro Podcasts?
We have been asked for daily audio micro-podcasts. At the moment it’s a step too far for us, as there’s a lot going on, as we move forward focussing on our two podcasts. So, for now its on the “back burner”.
Our Banana Tree is Growing 😀
Tamara and i never ever thought this root we were given would start to thrive as it has. I hope I haven’t jinxed anything here!
