Spending 48 Hours in Paris.

Hello Pals,
I went to Paris before arriving into Canada (“wasn’t that ages ago?! why yes it was.) of course, no thanks to having WOW go bankrupt. I had two days in Paris, the city of love, the hyped up, talked about capital city everyone LOVES or HATES. Me? I’ll fence sit, it was both wonderful and well, tiring.
Of course, two days won’t let you see everything in Paris, but it will let you experience it.

Skopje, the city of Statues.

Hello Pals,
Believe me, “the city of statues” is no original title, (inb4; like myself) but simply search “Skopje’s statues”, and the first option is a TripAdvisor review saying it had too many. Technically, I spent four days in North Macedonia, but I’ll only count two (much like other lists I have, removing things I don’t think count…) and I didn’t overly see much, although I did enjoy the few days I had.

Prizren; a sleeping beauty

Hello Pals,
Prizren is the second largest city within Kosovo and has the reputation of being the most beautiful. With a fortress overlooking terracotta roofed houses and a large river flowing between, it can be easy to understand why.
Mostly, a lot of things remain closed in Prizren – but it’s a lovely town to walk around in, it also may have just been the day I visited.

Prishtina, a city you’ll want to stay in.

Hello Pals,
I spent ten days in Kosovo, and I’m here to say it wasn’t enough. What initially got me to Kosovo was the statue of Bill Clinton and his big hands (no honestly, Kosovo has an issue with realistic hand size). After that, it was reading that you’ll fall in love with the country and people, which I did. Usually, I try to keep low expectations, but Kosovo – I had them high from the start, and it did not disappoint.at.all.

Delphi; The Centre of Greece.

Hello Pals,
Geographically, Delphi probably isn’t the centre of Greece. Mythologically, it’s said that when Zeus released two eagles to locate the navel, they landed in Delphi.
Apollo (God of Light, Knowledge & Harmony) kept his sanctuary here and was the site of the ancient Oracle (to provide wise & insightful predictions of the future.) It is said some of the first forms of divination occurred in Delphi. In 2002 The New York times released an article that the oracles were actually just kinda high lmao.

Delphi Oracles’ wisdom came back to the three life rules;
Know Thyself . | Everything in Moderation | Harmony in Difference.

Greece: Athens.

Hello Pals,
When discussing Athens, a lot of people seem to not like it. They don’t like it when they arrive, they leave after a few days and don’t let this massive city grow on them. Big cities enhance your feelings; there is too much processing. You need to stop, go to a cafe, people watch and take it easy.

Athens is full of great food, great people and great coffee! You just need to keep your wits, trust your guts and do some research before hand.
