Sunshine, Lakes & Statues In North Macedonia

When I think of countries that I know I'll visit eventually, Macedonia (now North Macedonia) would never have made that list. In fact, a year ago, if you'd asked me what the capital of Macedonia is, I might have been able to guess, though I couldn't have told you with confidence how it's pronounced, but… Continue reading Sunshine, Lakes & Statues In North Macedonia

Adventures In Albania: Two Hours In Tirana Is Not Enough

When I saw Albania on the Travel Talk tour itinerary, my interest was immediately piqued, because even on the surface, it's a fascinating country. After all, this is a country that, when I was born, no one knew anything about. Until 1991, it was even more closed off than North Korea is today (you couldn't… Continue reading Adventures In Albania: Two Hours In Tirana Is Not Enough

Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

It's no secret that I loved Bosnia. From the charming towns to the stunning mountains; the villages with backdrops to the sprawling countryside. Bosnia and Herzegovina had way more to offer than I could ever have expected. Of course, most of my photos were taken from the window of a bus, and that's not the… Continue reading Photo Friday: The Beauty Of Bosnia

Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

After Sarajevo, I was bracing myself for Mostar. I knew about the beauty; but I wasn't sure how much the city was still affected by the war, especially compared to Bosnia's capital and the horrors we'd seen there. ...oh boy. The huge difference with Mostar though, is once you get into the historic centre, it… Continue reading Mostar: The Gem Of Bosnia

Exploring Beautiful Belgrade

Belgrade was another eastern European city that really took me by surprise with its pretty architecture and funky bars and cafés. Like Sofia, I had literally zero expectations for Belgrade. It was a city that I had never planned to visit, and it was only when we arrived in the Serbian capital that I realised… Continue reading Exploring Beautiful Belgrade
