Travelling early has different meanings, but waking up at 2:50 AM definitely gives it a special flavour… As Lizzie (SCM Britian Staff Member) would put it: we did not feel quite humane. After all, we made it to Skopje. Sun and +18 degrees! We instantly forgot about all the tiredness.

Pavlina, the Macedonian SCM contact person and the host of the meeting was already waiting for us at the venue. We quickly changed and went to explore the city that is in its rebirth phase after a horrific earthquake in the 1960s’. Since it was quite dark we did not explore too much, but at once I thought that it was going to be an interesting place to stay at. The city centre is full of monumental statues, the national heroes from the ancient times blend with the most recent freedom fighters. That evening was also our first encounter with Macedonian cuisine and it was really really good! Looking forward to experience more!
