Living A Dream: The Greek Islands

Living A Dream: The Greek Islands

When people ask me why I am in Greece, my immediate response is “Why not?” When I give my second more serious response, I always truthfully say that I have always wanted to go to Greece since I was younger.

With hitchhiking being a fairly new resource to me in the world of travel, I have quickly become very knowledgable in what to do and how to do it despite my intimidation for so long at the beginning of this Balkan journey.

Skopje: A City with Two Sides

Skopje is certainly an interesting city. A city that actually became more interesting to me as I was there and since I hitchhiked my way out of it. From Prishtina, Kosovo, I arrived by bus passing by the city’s fortress overlooking the city center gazing at some of the massive statues that dominate the city. These statues along are half of the reason why this city has become interesting,...
