from september to october 2017, i went on a holiday to macedonia and montenegro. it is a very mountainous region, something i wasn't used to living in melbourne my whole life.

macedonia is dotted with beautiful monasteries, like the beautiful st. naum monastery on lake ohrid. it has a blend of traditional red-roofed macedonian houses and large brutalist concrete apartment blocks, which gives it a unique look.

herceg novi in montenegro is a tiny, charming city built on the side of a hill in the bay of kotor. placed throughout the city are a few old fortresses, like fort spanjola. i saw a naked old man sunbathing in the ruins of a fortress by the beach.
