Travel bummers can happen, too

While visiting Skopje, FYROM (Macedonia), my boyfriend and I can say that we enjoyed 99% of the experiences and things seen.
What about the remaining 1%? I’m talking about that over on Milliver’s Travels.

Go read my travel article, The lesser delights of Scupi, the Skopje Aqueduct and Macedonian Village , to find out what my travel bummers were.

A place where time stands still

I’ve been planning to write a travel article about Alba Carolina Fortress ever since my first visit during Summer 2013. I also re-visited the place in every season and all sorts of weather. So, after I got my snowy photos of it, I finally did write about it.

Head on over to Milliver’s Travels and read it, you’ll find it here “Alba Carolina Fortress Through the Seasons”. It has a ton of beautiful photographs so you can picture exactly why I call this, a place where time stands still.

Skopje’s lovely Oriental influences

As I’ve briefly mentioned before, my boyfriend and I visited Skopje, Macedonia during our Winter holiday. It was amazing! I especially loved discovering Skopje’s lovely oriental influences. We’ve never been to a place even remotely similar to this.

Want to see my pictures and read about it? Come on over to Milliver’s Travels to read my travel article, “Discovering Skopje’s Ottoman Influences”. It is both informative and very colorful.

The Bohemian Quater Guest House in Skopje, Macedonia

I was so thrilled with Bohemian Quater Guest House in Skopje, Macedonia, I have to write my review of it here as well not only leave it on Booking.com. Hope some of you will find it useful.

Pros:

The place was clean, comfy, cozy and quiet even though there is a large boulevard around the corner. I have trouble sleeping if there’s noise, but had no issues here.

The property is in a perfect location! We could walk basically everywhere – we didn’t use the car once after arriving. One can reach the city center in about 15 minutes, the old bazaar in 20, the mall in 20 minutes, and there are several 24/7 bakeries, pastries shops and groceries around reachable in up to 10 minutes.

The bus stop is reachable in 5 minutes and I was most surprised that any trip (within the city, and even where the bus goes outside of the city, for example to visit Matka Canyon) is 35 Denars ($0,7 at the time of writing this).

The hosts are lovely, they speak English very well, and are knowledgeable, gave us ideas on what to visit, advice on which bus to take, and checked back to see if we needed anything.

A huge plus, I’d say, is arranging our registration and check out at the police station – I wasn’t aware before, but foreigners spending even one night at an address in Macedonia are required to register their place of residence within 24 hours of arrival. The host took care of this and we got to enjoy ourselves.
As far as I heard afterwards, the fine is pretty steep for not being able to present this paper at the state border if asked for it and also results in being banned from the country for a year. I’m happy the host was on top of his legal knowledge.

Cons:

In one place among the property descriptions it says that “Free private parking available on-site”, in other places it only says “Free parking”. I assumed it to be private parking in a garage or yard, but it is street parking.
That said, it is a safe neighborhood and we had no issues leaving our car in front of the property.

Overall we had a lovely time, the property was great and the city is very interesting to explore!
