      orientation tips

      by stamoz Online Now Aug 6, 2016 at 1:13 PM

      hello everyone,

      I kindly ask if anyone knows how far train and bus stations are from eachother. The reason is I'm booking a train ticket Beograd-Skopje but I've just been able to find bus tickets for Skopje-Sofia.

      Has anyone travelled thru the Beograd-Skopje-Sofia by train mainly? Thank you

I have tried to search this forum but did not see travel advisories anywhere. I am traveling alone, so I want to be extra cautious. Thank you :)

      I am planning to have an interrail trip which involves the route Thessaloniki-Skopje. Although I've scheduled my plan according to the timetable provided by and checked the plan many times, I realized two days ago that the route is no longer available at the website.
      Do you know whether the train still runs from Thessaloniki to Skopje? If it is not the case what are the other means of transportation to Skopje?

      Driving in rented van from Skopje to Sofia

      by KFWong Online Now Feb 6, 2016 at 1:06 AM

      We are from Malaysia. Our travel group of 7 adults have planned a 3 week self drive tour of the Balkans in May 2016. We will rent a van to drive in a loop from Sofia - Belgrade - Zagreb - Ljubljana - Plitvicka Jezera NP - Split - Dubrovnik - Kotor - Tirana - Ohrid - Skopje - Sofia.

      On our last day (21st May 2016), we plan to drive @ 1000hr from Skopje to Sofia Airport to return the rented van @ 1800hr, and then catch our flight to KUL @ ETD 2130hr. The drive on route E871 is approx 250km / 4 hr drive.

      We need advice on the following questions;
      1. As we are driving a rented van, would we face issues with the border control guards at the border crossing from Macedonia into Bulgaria with our passports and/or rented van ? The rental car company in Sofia will give us a Power of Attorney certificate to allow us to drive the rented van through the destinations on our trip itinerary, or
      2. Should we depart a day in advance (ie on 20th May 2016) from Skopje to Sofia in case we face issues with the border guards and is delayed for half a day ? If this happen, then we one extra day to resolve any issues with the border guards to allow us to drive our rented van to Sofia.

      Would appreciate your valued advice on the above. TQ

      Hi @ all!
      I have a question! My boyfriend and me really love skiing. In January 2015 we have been for one week to Austria, in the Zillertal. Our Hotel Gaspingerhof was located in a small village called Gerlos and we had access to over 139 km of slopes and one direct to our hotel. The hotel has a big SPA area and a huge offer of beauty and massage (also Yoga) and the culinary was indescribable.
      Next year we want to do such a winter holiday again. Does anybody have a recommendation? Maybe in Salzburg or Tyrol again?
      Thank you
