Chitagong & Coxbazar

🇧🇩 🇧🇩 🇧🇩 It was a sunny and warm late December afternoon when I landed Chitagong international airport. The plan was to stay 4 days here before flying off to Dhaka. My hotel was near Chawk Bazar which was quite far from Airport. Chitagong itself is a very overcrowded and dusty (during dry season) city , but it is a great base to cover some of Chitagong hill tract districts, specially Rangamati and Bandarban. Unfortunately foreigners require special permit to visit tribal areas and I did not have time for this bureaucratic…

Train from Belgrade to Bar

🇲🇪 🇲🇪 🇲🇪 The journey from Belgrade to Bar is one of the most spectacular train journeys in Europe. It's a marvel of engineering, with 254 tunnels and 435 bridges on the 296-mile journey from the Serbian capital to the Adriatic coast, Construction of the line started in the 1950s but only completed in 1976, opened by President Tito himself.
