I was due to fliy out on the 13.40 Jat Airlines flight to Belgrade. Sadly the flight was delayed, due as ever to heavy air traffic in the London area. We arrived at Belgrade at 17.45 and did not get to our hotel (the Holiday Inn) until after 18.00.
The view was not so good, very industrial and there was even a fire which was burning ferociously nearby.
It was a comfortable place to stay and we decided to eat in the hotel. They have a good menu and excellent staff. However there does seem to be a great many smokers and they have special places for them. The spaces they use are much bigger than for the non smokers.
It was a focussed and busy start to the day. Our first two meetings were in the hotel, and then later in the day we went back to the office.
We had two meetings in the hotel - one before lunch and one after. It was an enjoyable day; the food in the restaurant was a standard menu. It was good and I think I can safely say that the desserts were excellent.
There is a suite of meeting rooms and they are all named after famous Serbian Orthodox Monasteries.
Our morning was a slightly late start; and we had a leisurely breakfast and then car journey to the airport. The airport was quite interesting, however it did seem a little old fashioned and this may be confirmed by the departures board shown in the image.
Jat airways was flying on time and it another smooth flight until a few minutes before landing at Heathrow, it became a little turbulent.
