Of all the places I have stayed a month or more I enjoyed Belgrade the most.  It is not the most beautiful city in Europe but it feels a real city and has an edge.  It is also not overrun with tourists. Yet.

Skopje Center

Project Skopje 2014. Ancient Macedonia or Macedonialand

Skopje in Macedonia is a bit of a strange city.  Like most capital cities it wants to show its strength in its centre.  Back in 2010, the government was not happy with how the centre looked so plan Skopje 2014 was implemented.  Is it ancient Greece.  Disneyland or maybe Macedonia land.

I left Las Palmas Gran Canaria one month today.  It has been an interesting month so far but I have had times when I have wondered if I have done the right thing.  One thing I decided when I started this blog that it would be one thing for sure.  Honest.
