Nov 25, 2007 - Skopje

I think Skopje may have been stolen from Belarus or maybe Stalin designed it for Tito before they fell out. What a grim, grey rundown city if ever there was one. OK it's late on a Sunday afternoon and misty but I realy can't see it being much brighter in the middle of a heatwave. Thankfully it's just a quick overnight stop on the way into Greece. They did serve up a decent Big Mac thought so definitely not the worst place I've ever been. How is it that the grim places are always the hardest to get out of? The train station and bus station...

Jun 22, 2007 - Skopeji, Macedonia.

I must say things did not get off to a right start in this city. After arriving at the chaotic bus station I tried to inquire about a bus to my next destination Jump to full entry

Sep 17, 2006 - Macedonia, and a second run for the border!

So, its been two days since we have slept... We have had 2 night busses in a row, one of which worked out successfully. We are cold, tired, bewildered, and off the game plan. No rest for the wicked... its time to get a move on. 6:30 AM and we catch our bus for Skopje, the capital of Macedonia from which we will launch our venture into Serbia once more. Now, we had investigated Macedonia in advance and were skipping it strictly because we need a Visa for about 12 US dollars which, why bother when we can go everywhere else around it for...

Jun 9, 2006 - Making Macedonia

Random opening of my notebook finds: "Do Brecht In-Out Exercise"... I knew I'd watched that Clockwork Orange movie too many times. So. Growing up as a foreigner ("Canadian") in American-owned North America, I always wondered if the great myths and legends surrounding American culture were true, and where some of their poetic phrases and idioms originated. For instance, I present for your consideration "Stick it where the sun don't shine". Well, now I know. Macedonia (literally, "Sun Is Capitalist Plot") may be the home of that most lyrical...

Jul 31, 2005 - Skopje MACEDONIA

At 0830 we set off by bus to Sofia. Mountains covered with forests and cultivated valleys until we reached Sofia at midday. By this time we had decided to head on to Skopje if we could and as it happened a bus was leaving in one hours time so off we went again. The border crossing was in the middle of the mountains and relatively quick once again. On arrival at the bus station we tried to change our liva with no luck so ended up in a taxi with two drivers (that should have made us suspicious!) who proceeded firstly to rip us off for our...

Oct 20, 2004 - Kavadarci and Skopje, Macedonia

10-16-04 I made it to Skopje! Although how I got here changed quite a bit from the time I got on the train headed for Skopje and the time I got off, two stops before and an hour outside of Skopje with a man coming home from working in Greece for 5 months to stay with him and his family for a night! There will more to come about the crazy adventure I am in right now, but I need some time to write a travelogue! It has been a crazy journey thus far. I am now staying with Josip's sister, Sonia, at a travel agency in the center of Skopje. It is...
