It is from few days that I’m thinking to write a post summarizing the Balkans. Write something that gives the general idea of the peninsula that occupies the south-east Europe. The region is made up of a myriad of ethnic groups, a mix of music, art, language, food, wine, smells …
Every road traveled has left a lasting impression: the dolphins in Croatia, the coffee in Zagreb, the great parks of Belgrade, the history of Sofia, the wines of Plovdiv, the Danube, the pristine beaches of the Black Sea, the architecture of Skopje , food in Prizren. All accompanied by all the people I met along the way.
People are what makes the real difference in one place. Today with various socials networks it is so easy to meet people at every place. It takes a day or two to begin to meet new friends, to share and build relationships.
So I decided to collect all within the three seas that mark the border of the peninsula. Nothing else is needed. Between one sea and another there are the Balkans, that’s all.
Traveling from coast to coast was exciting. All there is in the midst of these natural boundaries is something to know, to assimilate, to study, to observe.
Like any journey starts from a point and arrives to another, no way back. Return to the starting point will be different from the beginning, I’m different.
See you soon
