Europe at a fraction of the cost!

Macedonia is a slice of Europe at a fraction of the cost!

I’ve been in Macedonia for the last week for business and thought I’d share a bit about this fabulous country. While I’ve been working 12-14 hrs days and haven’t had much of a chance to explore, but I can share a few tidbits.

I’ve been here for 12 days and have spent less than $10 a day on food. Keep in mind that this isn’t a starvation diet. This includes main course, sparkling water, wine, appetizers and dessert! The food is fabulous and you’d think you had landed in Italy if you didn’t know better. Main courses themselves run at about $4-$5 at the most expensive restaurants in town!

Additionally you have all sorts of spa treatments at prices you thought you had to go to Thailand to get. $10 for an hour massage, manicure & pedicure, or leg and bikini wax. $5 for an expensive haircut. $100 for a package of 20 body wraps and massages!

They’ve got lakes in the summer and skiing in the winter, plus the people are fabulous and the weather has been unseasonably warm!

Happy Travels!


P.S. In case you are wondering where Macedonia is, I’ve included the handy map above with the arrow indicating where MK is. It was referred to me as a small country between Greece and Italy, as it’s food would reflect. In reality it landlocked between Serbia, Albania, Greece, and Bulgaria. It was former part of Yugoslavia and gained independence in 1991.
