After living in the Balkans for about 8 months almost 2 years ago (how has it already been that long?!), I still can’t stop singing the praises of this amazing region. Still misconstrued as dangerous due to the Balkan Wars of the 1990s, this peninsula is now a hot spot for tourists looking for cheap, undiscovered, historical, outdoorsy destinations!
Oh Skopje, where do I even begin? You’re the weirdest, gaudiest, strangest, coolest city I’ve ever visited. Known as the mini-Vegas or the Disney World of the Balkans, Skopje manages to pack in more entertainment than I thought possible in a very small amount of area. And Macedonia, thanks for being country NUMBER 30 for me!
It started out with me taking a break while I went on a one week trip through the Balkans before I moved to Sofia, Bulgaria. And somehow that one week turned into a month?! But honestly, it made me realize just how much I love blogging and how I want to put so much more work into blogging. I haven’t even blogged about Sofia and I’ve now been here over 5 weeks! Time is flying by…I leave to go back to Michigan for 7 weeks on July 18th. To be honest, I’m ready. 100% ready to get home, decompress, RELAX, and let my parents spoil me before I head off to Edinburgh, Scotland to start business school!
