    Yay! Skopje! I finally made it to Bosnia and Croatia. I aroedd Bosnia and will definitely return but we’d like to extend our visit to Macedonia and Montenegro next time. I did not realise that Macedonia had never been a state in its own right but I see you are right it was an area of either Serbia or Greece, a province perhaps, but never a state. Just one correction to the above, they claimed independence 21 years ago.Mandy recently posted
