Lake #Ohrid was among the deepest (300m deep) and oldest (3 million years old) lakes of tectonic origin in #Europe. It had no less than 200 endemic species of flora and fauna. #balkans #authentic #experience #authentictravels #macedonia #ohridlake

Exploring the old town of #Ohrid is full of contrasts - from the sunny weather I was expecting (and it turned out to be a rainy day) to the different parts of the old town (the Christian part vs. the #Turkish #bazaar). Ohrid is the oldest and most complete architectural ensemble in the southeastern part of Europe and ancient ruins pop up at every corner of the old town. #Balkans. #authentic #experience #authentictravels

Driving from #Prilep to #Ohrid via #Bitola is a rewarding road trip and you can see one of the best preserved #archaeological site of #Macedonia - #heraklealyncestis. In the same time, the old #Turkish #bazaar of Bitola has preserved its oriental atmosphere and keeps surprising people that explore the #Balkans. #authentic #experience #authentictravels

#Kratovo is one of the most rewarding historic towns of #Macedonia - not for its beauty or old #architecture, but especially for the president of the Slow Food Association of Macedonia. Stevce Donevski restored an old #traditional #house in Kratovo and opened it for tourists. #authentic #experience #authentictravels

One of the most remote and #authentic areas of #Macedonia is in the #Mavrovo region - a mountain landscape, with Muslim villages and Christian monasteries as well, dotted with sheep herds and wild horses. #authentic #experience #authentictravels

The first stop from the roadtrip through the Balkans that I completed in the summer of 2017 is the eclectic capital of #Skopje. A mix of modern and Turkish #architecture, Skopje is city that surprises at each corner and partially immerses you into the Asian world of southeastern Europe. #authentic #experience #authentictravels

Another #travel #writing #diary from my trip to the #Greekisland - #Samothraki #island is one of the best choices in the northeastern part of the #Aegean #Sea. It has pebbled #beaches and #archaeological sites, but also #bouzouki music and night life. #authentictravels

Another #travel #writing #diary from my trip to the #Greekisland - #Lemnos #island is one of the best choices in the northeastern part of the #Aegean #Sea. It has secluded #beaches, isolated #chapels, and #archaeological sites. #authentictravels

That's a difficult task in our lives: die without having regrets. The difference between end goals and mean goals is very important. My end goal is to travel at a slow pace and discover as much as I can from a country. My mean goal is to have money to do that. And there's another mean goal: have time to do that. So, money and time to travel authentic. #authentictravels

I've started to publish a new series of #travel #diaries from the beauty of the #GreekIslands. For the first week, the azure waters of #Thassos #Island just hypnotized me. I had to surrender and admit that it was more than I had expected. The #authentic #villages with small, shadowed squares are always animated by #tavernas. Most of the houses are stone-made and whitewashed with a thin lavish. The waters and the beaches left me speechless, starting from the color of the water and ending with the marble white sand.
