June 29th - July 1st, 2017From Croatia we went to Serbia. Serbian countryside is laid back, friendly, and beautiful. The roads are good and easy to navigate. That being said, the only place we have felt it was best not to tell people we were from the USA was in Belgrade. The people were friendly, but the anti-american protest banners made us uncomfortable.
We lucked out and found a really nice campground near Novi Sad. Because Serbia is not a popular tourist destination for people traveling in camper vans, campgrounds are infrequent and wild camping is not encouraged. The campground was next the nature reserve Zasavica.

This little bird was very happy to pose, showing off her lunch. We had lunch also, but ours was much better, a traditional Serbian stew with homemade bread.
