2.10. Gorne Selo – Skopje (Macedonia)

Skopje16:39 – End of trip. 16 days, 1600 kilometres, countless mountains. Skopje is not beautiful, but has a fantastic market and great food. The weather comes full circle. The first and the last day were wet.

Bad road to Skopje14:51 – Just after crossing into Macedonia, I get lost. It is one of the most rewarding detours ever. Rubble roads, always downhill, no traffic until I hit the outskirts of Skopje.

Lunch12:48 – Last lunch on the road.

Language barrier10:45 – Cultural allegiances change every few kilometres here. So instead of trying out my Albanian or Serbo-Croatian, I retreat to safer English, German and signs.
