New travel article: Impressions of Pristina

7 July 2011

If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you might have noticed that I’m quite in love with the Balkans. But I’m not the only one. The last three years, Croatia had an average of eleven million tourists per year. Yes, Croatia is also part of the Balkans.

But I like my travel destinations to be a bit uncommon, “off the beaten track” as we travelers say. So I gave Bosnia and Herzegovina a shot, I had a look at Montenegro, I went to Serbia, Albania started to get close to what I had in mind, but this time is was going to the most mystical country of them all. Kosovo.

My main reason to visit Kosovo was because during my travels through the Balkans lots of people had told me not to go there – yes, I am a rebel – for reasons of theft, rape, murder and worse.
But when you’re prepared for the worst, things can only be better.
And they were.
They certainly were.

I too LOVE the Balkans. I havent gotten back since 2004 but its a place that really grabbed my heart over several forays. Kosovo was one of the most fascianting places I went. And cold. I went in the middle of winter. Cold and wild and wonderful. Jim
