Plans for 2007: Macedonia and more

There won't be much activity on Balkanology in April or May, as I will be concentrating on actually travelling instead of writing about travel. But don't worry, I haven't given up on the site, far from it: there will be plenty of new additions to the site over the summer months.

I will be visiting Macedonia in May and hope to expand my coverage of that country. Hopefully the weather will be better than it was for my two previous short visits - this time round I'd like to spend less time dodging torrential rainstorms and more time taking photos.

Later in 2007 I also hope to add some suggested itineraries for people wishing to take in several Balkan countries in a single trip, and more information about flights to the Balkans from the UK and Ireland.

Hi there :)
As busy as I was I didn't spend much time online lately and missed the fact that you are planing a trip to Macedonia. If it is not to late to help you planing or anything else please let me know :) Unfortunately in May I'll be expecting to become father for first time and wont be able to join you but please give me an opportunity to give you my Nerezi, or Old bazaar, or Matka, or Monasteries and churches of Skopska Crna Gora, or Marko's Monastery tour or just have a drink :)
Write me on b.stankovski@gmail.com

Hi, I am planning my Summer 07 trip to the Balkans and have found your "Balkanology" extremely useful in getting an idea of the place. As my parents are from Former Yugoslavia (they met each other after emigrating to Australia), your perspective is refreshingly (to me) objective and worthwhile. It is my first time to the "Old Country" and I am looking forward to it.
Keep up the good work
