How has your multicultural heritage influenced the way you travel and eat?

In the Spring of 2014 I had the pleasure of traveling through Serbia and Bosnia & Herzegovina for Davidsbeenhere.com. We filmed beautiful scenery, cities, monuments, and met some amazing people along the way. In addition to my regular production, I wanted to showcase some highlights from my trip using my new XShot. It’s the perfect companion for whoever wants to capture their travel memories without awkward self-shots or asking others to take pictures of you. I hope you enjoy the video! Stay tuned for future episodes and articles of my trip through the Balkans. To get your own XShot click HERE.

But only one of the buildings continues to be the emblem of democracy, and that is the Parthenon. The Parthenon was an impressive structure for its time – a temple dedicated to Athena made entirely of Pentelic marble and adorned with intricate statues, friezes, and inscriptions about the Greek gods and Athenian victories over the Persians. Architects Iktinos and Kallikrates are credited as the masterminds behind its simple, yet elegant design. The columns of the Parthenon look straight, but are actually thicker at the base to give the illusion of symmetry. This type of optical illusion where objects converge at a single point is called linear perspective. This mathematically based system was developed by the ancient Greeks and has since been applied in many forms of art to create the illusion of depth. A notable work using these principles is the 15th century painting by Leonardo da Vinci, The Last Supper.

Throughout the centuries, residents of Ahmedabad have invented complex dances. The accompanying music was originally acoustic (using drums and singing), but people today dance to amplified modern sound systems or blend singing and drums with a live band. On the tenth day of the festival, Dashera (known as Vijayadashami in southern India), people celebrate by dancing and buying new vehicles! A crunchy, salty fried food, fafda, and jalebi, a fried sweet, are consumed on the tenth day.

Never be entitled.  When you’re traveling in a foreign country, remember that you’re like a guest in someone else’s home.  I’ve seen too many tourists who act like they own the place and it makes my blood boil every time.  Don’t be like that.  Instead, always be mindful and respectful of the local people and their customs.  You wouldn’t want anyone being disrespectful in your home would you?

The charismatic town of Ribadavia is the unofficial capital of the Ribeiro wine region, and just a half-hour drive from Ourense. It is famous for not only its wine production, but for its medieval character and several religious buildings. Like Allariz, Ribadavia was declared a Historic-Artistic site for its striking architecture, pursuits in art and continued efforts in historical preservation. The area where Ribadavia lies has been inhabited by many societies including the Celts and ancient Romans. The town sits among a verdant, fertile landscape of vineyards and canyons, and is intercepted by the Rivers Miño and Avia.

My favorite travel quote?

Plays of all kinds were performed here to delight the crowds of ancient Lusitania. The backdrop to the stage, scaenae frons, has been well preserved. It features Corinthian columns, several inscriptions and marble statues. The theater is old, but it’s far from obsolete. Every summer during July and August the theater’s acoustics still echo throughout the city during Theater Festival. Events include Greek dramas, tragedies, comedies, musicals, and dance shows. Visit www.festivaldeMérida.es for up-to-date scheduling information.

Serbia may be a modern country, but it boasts plenty of ancient history, with much of it dating from the Roman times. There are also many wineries and great restaurants to enjoy while touring the country.  The three cities we used as bases would be worthy of a prolonged visits in their own right and there were many other places that we would like to have visited that makes me think we may have to return to this beautiful country again in the future!

You’ll finally land on the banks of the river. In addition, your experienced guides can jump across stones inside the rapids to find a great place to capture fish.

Why is The Holy Cow’s meat is the fact that it’s the freshest meat possible. You’ll be able to taste the quality for it, and It’s never been frozen and feel it in the meat’s texture.

Because it caters to natives instead of tourists, Warorot Market is a fantastic place to try nearby Thai food, including meals, street food bites, along with fresh produce.

Most exotic place your career has taken you? 

Budva is one of the most fun places I have visited. If possible, I strongly recommend renting a car to get around the stunning Budva Riviera. Taxis can get quite pricy in and around Budva, but thankfully the old town can be walked and getting to most of its beaches on foot is easy. With nearly 300 days of summer weather and miles of beach, you will find no shortage of fun in the sun. The Montenegrin culture has been strongly influenced by various empires throughout the centuries, but hospitality and friendliness are at the heart of every encounter you will have with the people of Budva and in the surrounding towns. Try the local Vrnac red wine and do not miss the local delicacies: smoked ham, baked lamb, and pan seared fresh trout. As of Fall 2011, Montenegro retains its independence as a country but is awaiting approval of membership into the European Union. Montenegro converted to Euro currency in 2002, and most of Budva’s banks will be able to exchange your domestic currency for Euros. If you have the time check out the other beaches in the area. Jaz Beach, Petrovac Beach, and Kings Beach are also great swim spots, and not as crowded as some of the others. Diving and water sports are a huge industry along the coast. Kayaking, Scuba, waterskiing, and jet skiing are popular among thrill seekers. Diving in Ulcinj will take you along portions of a sunken ancient Roman city and two shipwrecks from the 1700s- the Adria and the Forvest. From May to October Budva hosts tons of concerts, bazaars, dance festivals, art exhibits, car shows, and more. Leave the kids with the babysitter, bring your strongest sunscreen and live it up in Budva… an ancient town with a sexy modern twist.
