"Mostly Macedonia" Pijlmans's Profile
My space here on VT is mostly about Macedonia. My girlfriend is from Skopje in Macedonia, I am Dutch and we live near Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
Macedonia is located in the Balkan and borders Serbia and Kosovo in the north, Bulgaria in the east, Greece in the south and Albania in the west.
The links in bold refer to pages and sights that in my opinion are extra worthwhile.
Follow this link for information about Hiking in Macedonia .
