Vagobond Travel Museum – Bulgaria and Macedonia

My trip to the Balkans was a last minute decision and since I had to fly back to Morocco, then back to Istanbul and then onward to South Korea – it was more rushed than I would have preferred. Still, my time in the Balkans taught me a lot and despite the somewhat negative experiences I had in Serbia – I look forward to going back and exploring this fascinating and beautiful part of the world – especially the countries along the Adriatic on the other side from Italy that I didn’t have time to enjoy.

I hope you enjoy my adventures in Bulgaria and Macedonia
