At 4am tomorrow morning, I'll be on my way to Macedonia for a week. Never been there before, and going to do the usual tourist sightseeing. Having budgeted time and money for travel, my original plans changed. So I looked through my travel books, and saw a country with castles, landscapes and interesting architecture. It's outside the EU, but likely to join.

Below is my outline. It'll change, only the flights and first two nights are booked so far.
