After almost three years in Serbia, an American family, the Monestel family – Robert, Julie and their three kids are moving to Seoul in South Korea. They liked Serbia from day one, and will miss Serbia and its people.
Back in August 2011, Robert Monestel wrote a blog post talking about their first week in Belgrade:
Our family arrived in Belgrade last week for our next post overseas. They say first impressions are everything, and so far this promises to be a great place to call home for the next few years…
The people of Belgrade are very welcoming, and my staff at the clinic are particularly helpful in every step of the way. So, we start our discovery of this region and particularly of Serbia. From our initial exposure this promises to be a great gem not yet fully discovered by many in the West.
And yes, Serbia was a great place for this American family. Last week, the Monestel family moved to Seoul and Robert Monestel posted his last blog post from Serbia titled “Vidimo se Srbija (See you Later Serbia)”
We say goodbye to Serbia this week, after three wonderful years in this beautiful country. We’ve had many great memories here and will always remember it fondly… From day one in Serbia, we knew this was going to be a great post. Sure enough, it has been a great place for our family; and the school and work environment were excellent. We have highly recommended it to other colleagues.
We’ll miss the walks near Kosutnjak Forest, biking or playing in Ada Lake park, or simply just having a great meal at any one of the thousands of cafes that permeate through the city of Belgrade…. We will always remember this region with warm memories and hope to visit again in the future… We will surely miss this country and its people.
Thank you Robert, Julie and all your family for loving Serbia and Serbian people. Serbia warmly welcomes all guests who know how to appreciate its hospitality.
