... just hang out, nurse drinks, and shoot the **** all day and night as best as I can tell. The food is very similar to the rest of the Balkans, but was cheaper here than in the capital. For example, I had a mixed salad and goulash for lunch one day at a cafe on the river. $3.20. And my perfectly fine room was 13 Euros a night. On Friday and Saturday night, there was a definite scene. Lots and lots of ...
... is a small touristy village with many good restaurants shops cafes and bars. We found our lovely hotel called Aldebaran, which was just a couple minutes walk from the beach. While walking to the hotel, I had spotted a couple with an ATV and asked them how much it had cost for them to rent it. I knew that we had to get ourselves one the next day to cruise around the island on. Our hotel room was nice with a balcony facing the back with a lot of foliage. The family that runs the hotel ...
... they are actually making the wine but it was really cool to see! The last stop almost killed me, we were standing near where the guys were working and I felt as though my throat was slowly closing up and I needed to cough so bad but was trying to hold it in! Turns out they were using sulfur, well thats interesting. We went into the restaurant clearly not dressed for a fancy dining occasion more for a road trip to the country! We decided to do a wine tasting which ...
... helped me locate the Sunny Lake hostel in no time. A friendly Macedonian named Gyoko checked me in, before I began quizzing him on what I could do when it rained at Lake Ohrid.

Not having any porno films on my laptop, I resigned to facebook instead. But that wasn't half as much fun as ...
... lesser road on map; or left, into Macedeonia, for longer run but on major road. With timke lost we opt for former -and promptly lose some more, as we descent on absolute pig of a surface, get to bottom, turn around, and crawl back up again!

Good, simple, clean accommodation with an unbeatable location, just steps from the main pedestrian street - close enough to the action, but far enough away to enjoy a quiet night's rest. Nice little courtyard for sitting, covered with grape vines.
Staff is great, very kind, treating you like guests rather than paying customers, very happy to chat with you and get to know you. Only suggestion I have is to skip the breakfast - you can probably do better on your own for the price.
