TUB Tours 2014 Serbia Spring Tour - final count

A fabulous time was had by all in what is rapidly becoming one of my favourite countries. Serbia has some amazing wildlife and the locals are pretty amenable too. But the single thing I love the most about the country are its owls.

I can't wait for the winter tour in December 2014
