Where to eat in Belgrade

By on Jan 15, 2020 in Serbia

We spent just over two weeks in Belgrade and absolutely loved this city! One of the reasons were all the good food you can find scattered around the city. Belgrade is a very diverse city, and so is the food. You find everything here, from traditional Serbian food, to street vendors to really good Asian restaurants to upscale European places. It’s a great city...

What to do in Niš

By on Jan 13, 2020 in Serbia

Our first stop in Serbia was Niš. A city in the southern part of the country. I’m not going to lie to you, this was not our favourite stop on the way. It’s a very industrial run down city, and we went through some very grim towns and places on the bus on our way to Niš. However, there are a few interesting places to visit in Niš and if it’s on your...

What to do in Skopje

By on Aug 16, 2019 in Macedonia

Our second and last stop in North Macedonia was Skopje. We didn’t know what to expect and was quite surprised by this eclectic city. Skopje pretty much has it all, historical old town, brutalist architecture and a renovated city centre filled with sculptures. And when I say filled, I mean they’re everywhere! More on this later. We spent a week in Skopje, rented a...

What to do in Ohrid

By on Aug 15, 2019 in Macedonia

We initially planned on staying a couple of nights in Ohrid, but kept on prolonging it and ended up staying for a week. We both fell in love with this little city situated by lake Ohrid. We stayed in an apartment just in the city centre close to the water, and enjoyed walks along the lake, walking around old town and just drinking coffee in the fall/winter weather....

How to cross the land border between Albania and North Macedonia by foot

By on Aug 15, 2019 in Albania, Macedonia, Travel tips

One of our most googled items during our travels through balkans was how to cross land borders between countries. Most of them were pretty straight forward, especially since we were on busses who knew which borders are open for foreigners etc. However, at one point we had to cross the border by foot, as there were no bus services between our to destinations. This...

The most beautiful cities and towns in Albania that you have to visit

By on Aug 13, 2019 in Albania

Albania is a beautiful country, blessed with amazing nature, mountains and good food. One thing I did not expect in Albania was all the picturesque and historical towns and cities. I was blown away time after time visiting some of these places. It is such a underestimated country that should go on more people’s radar, or maybe not, to keep the charm. Either...

What to do in Korçë

By on Aug 12, 2019 in Albania

Our last stop in Albania was Korçë, a small city known for its BBQ and old bazaar area. Korçë is high up which meant it was much colder than other areas of Albania we were in. If you travel by bus in Albania, as we did, don’t miss the bus between Gjirokaster and Korçë, it was a bit crazy sometimes, but with stunning views. What to do in Korçë It’s a cute small city...

What to do in Gjirokaster: Albania’s fairytale town

By on Aug 12, 2019 in Albania

We came to Gjirokaster in November, very very low season, and we were pretty much alone. We only saw two other tourists during our 2 nights there. This also meant that a lot of the shops and restaurants were closed, however, as there are locals living there as well some places were open. And we got a more local experience than during high season, which was great....

Travel Guide to Tirana, the capital of Albania

By on Aug 12, 2019 in Albania

We spent a week in Tirana, getting there I was quite run down and exhausted, realising I had a travel burn out so we decided to not do too much and try to live more ”normal” life for a few days. We enjoyed taking walks, going to the cinema, trying new food, just taking it easy at home doing nothing, cooking etc. Sometimes that’s all you want while traveling, normal...
