BULGARIA | Monday, 5 Oct 2015 | Views [270]

BULGARIA | Sunday, 4 Oct 2015 | Views [270]

Last Relaxing Sofia Day

BULGARIA | Friday, 2 Oct 2015 | Views [345]

I always like to make my final day in a large city a relaxing one. Rather then walking tours, museums, etc- (which I have already done), I like to  just relax, and maybe look at the sights one last time. And that is exactly what yesterday was. After ... Read more >

Bust A Move

BULGARIA | Thursday, 1 Oct 2015 | Views [357]

Yesterday was a busy day. First of all-it wasn't raining. It was overcast with some bits of sun and somewhat cold-but no rain, for the first time.    After once again enjoying the large buffet breakfast at the hostel, I went to the Museum ... Read more >

Rila Mountain High

BULGARIA | Wednesday, 30 Sep 2015 | Views [354]

For yesterday, i was thinking about spending a final day in Sofia, walking around the city. But instead, I spent the day hiking about an hour outside Sofia.   The day before, a sign up sheet was at the front desk for the "Lakes of Rila"-which ... Read more >

Raining at the Monastery

BULGARIA | Tuesday, 29 Sep 2015 | Views [324]

Another cold, rainy day yesterday.  The weather report indicated it was supposed to  clear up, but that has not happened. The weather has just been miserable. I have come to the horrible conclusion that maybe my days of wearing shorts on this ... Read more >

Soaking Sofia part 2

BULGARIA | Monday, 28 Sep 2015 | Views [327]

Yesterday was another cold rainy day here in Sofia. I started the day by going to the Museum of Socialist Art, which seemed like it would be interesting.  Plus, it should be warm and dry.   First I had to find the museum. I thought it ... Read more >

Soaking Sofia

BULGARIA | Sunday, 27 Sep 2015 | Views [328]

Sofia was cold (in the 50's) and rainy.   Anyway, I started the day by another walking tour. First I bought a leather jacket at a thrift shop for around $12.00, and then I continued on to the tour. (It wasn't raining too bad in the morning).... Read more >


Mostel Hostel

BULGARIA | Saturday, 26 Sep 2015 | Views [322]

Yesterday I woke up at the Downtown Hotel, and after a short jog, I went to breakfast at the buffet at the hotel-if I am going to pay an inflated rate, once again I figured I would take full advantage of the great buffet and I did! i had eggs, cheese ... Read more >

BULGARIA | Friday, 25 Sep 2015 | Views [323]

Last night, I slept in a hotel, even though I didn't want to.   But let's start with yesterday morning. A full 50%  of the guests staying at the hostel left before breakfast  (one other person), so I had breakfast in the ... Read more >

Relaxing Simple Ohrid

MACEDONIA | Thursday, 24 Sep 2015 | Views [271]

Yesterday I spent the day here in Ohrid, and it was a nice relaxing day. It started with a  cooked breakfast from Ana, who runs the hostel.  All of us who stayed at the hostel, including Ana, ate (including Ana, there we're 3 of us eating) ... Read more >


Ohird on a Tuesday

MACEDONIA | Wednesday, 23 Sep 2015 | Views [368]

Yesterday morning, I checked out of the hostel in Skopje (and that girl and her travel partner left to, before I did-and went in separate directions as far as  I know).  Skopje was an interesting city-an old town, yet a showy  Las-Vegas, ... Read more >

Sweet Hostel Macedonia

MACEDONIA | Tuesday, 22 Sep 2015 | Views [335]

Yesterday was a cloudy cold day in Skopje, and I didn't feel like doing too much. Being Monday, most museums we're closed (i think-I didn't check).    After waking up, I walked back to the bus station to get on the same bus I took to ... Read more >

Thunder in the Canyon

MACEDONIA | Monday, 21 Sep 2015 | Views [282]

Yesterday, I went to Canyon Matka-a lake in a canyon here on the outskirts of Skopje, just about an hour away by bus.   A lot of those who stay in hostels like nature and the activities that go with it, such as camping, hang gliding, ... Read more >

Locked in and Snapped At

MACEDONIA | Sunday, 20 Sep 2015 | Views [429]

Yesterday was my first full day here in Skopje. The day actually started very early in the hostel I am staying at. At 1-1:15 am, with myself still awake and two others sleeping in a six-bunk dorm, the woman working here flung open the door ... Read more >


Pristina to Skopje with Three Chance Meetings

MACEDONIA | Saturday, 19 Sep 2015 | Views [354]

Yesterday I finally left Pristina. Rather then go to another part of Kosovo, I decided to carry on and continue to Macedonia. The other parts of Kosovo seemed like quaint towns, forts, etc, and while great-they all seem to blend together, particularly ... Read more >


Museum and New Pants

KOSOVO | Friday, 18 Sep 2015 | Views [334] | Comments [2]

Yesterday the original plan was to check-out and go somewhere else-and I was undecided on the other place. I was debating on another spot in Kosovo; people have recommended a few-or to leave Kosovo or go to Macedonia.  In the end-I chose neither.... Read more >
