After crossing the border we get our first look at Lake Ohrid.
Em enjoys a much deserved cup of tea.
View from the hostel.
Em does dinner (and most of the bottle of wine disappears before dinner!)
On a trip up to the top of a mountain on the lake we pass Oliver, who had been staying in the hostel with us. He's cycling from Brussels to Jerusalem!...
We try to remain composed on the mountain top - it's very windy!
We look down at the road up the mountain.
Em finally gets lunch after we find a sheltered spot out of the wind.
It's the usual...
The town of Ohrid.
James loves the colourful flag.
We leave Ohrid after a couple of days relaxing and hit the road to Skopje.
Great roads through the mountainous landscape.
James has just managed to get the bikes in through the narrow gate of the hostel!
The 'Art Hostel' in Skopje - a bit funky.
The girl at the hostel recommends a locals' restaurant in a really quiet part of the old town. It does not disappoint!!
It's unbelievably cute.
An earthquakes in the 60s destroyed most of the town. Cue modern soviet buildings everywhere, though people are still using ones like this!
The side of the old railway station has a a written mural to remind people of the quake.
The front of the old station (note the wall to the left is completely destroyed). The clock stopped at the time of the earthquake.
Skopje has a lot of modern statues dotted about! Think a man designed this one...
The very modern Mother Teresa church - she was born in Skopje.
No, we don't know what it says either! This is becoming a common theme now and the 'point-it' book might start to get some use.
