Dear All ,
As you might be aware we have just completed our first Redbel road trip. Rather than just picking somewhere and doing some photo shoots, we thought it would be a great idea to run a competition for one lucky winner to join us on a road trip round the Balkan region visiting some truly amazing places and having some fun with our team at Redbel Amsterdam . That lucky winner was Isidora Kostic from Sabac in Serbia. To hear about her experience watch the video on our Redbel Amsterdam YouTube channel .
Places We Visited
The first place to visit on our Redbel road trip was Drvengrad, in the Mokra Gora region of Serbia. It was built by internationally recognised director Emir Kusturica. From there we went to Andricgrad and Visegrad in Bosnia , famously known for ‘the Bridge on Drina’ a book by the Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric . Somewhere I have been to before and is an amazing place visually and historically . We then drove down to Montenegro and went to Ostrog Monastery one of the most powerful and sacred monasteries in the Balkan region located approximately 3000 ft up on the mountain face. This was a very moving experience and very special. We continued then on to our base which was a beach apartment on the Montenegrin coast in Utjeha .
The next day of the Redbel road trip we went to Kotor , Budva and Bar, all in Montenegro. if you look at the photos you will see just how beautiful these places were. On the last day we visited Dubrovnik the home of Game of Thrones in Croatia and Banja Beach. On the way home we managed to go to the Lake Skadar for a boat ride where we shot the YouTube video.
All in all, if I was to say was it a success ? Then I would say most definitely! Not only did we manage to get over 2000 photos and 10 videos we all had a great time too . Even though I may be the CEO of Redbel Amsterdam I do believe in hands on work as it is important to keep in touch and support the team where I can. I hope you all enjoy the photos and videos to come and like and want this years summer designs.
For now I would like to say thank you for taking the time to read this. I wish you all a fantastic week , peace out and love to you all .
