Burgos, Barcelona, Madrid: Spain by bus, plane, and train

Sightseeing three Spanish cities in one day during a pandemic? Done! And most of that by walking. This is how six young Macedonians spent an incredible week in Spain in late August 2021.

One weekend in Albania

What’s the best way to use a long weekend as a volunteer? Right, to travel! However, those four days surpassed all of our expectations of sunny beaches and cheap meals. Keywords: Car accident and a shop owner who chased a bus for us.  Friday night. The bus station in Skopje.  I arrive ten minutes before […]

Volunteering. Selfishness or Altruism?

Во Новата година по нови доживувања: Подготвени за патувања?

Времето поминато дома  ја зголеми страста за допир со надворешниот свет, запознавањето со различни места и култури, но пред се, со потребата повторно да се чувствуваме слободни и живи. Додека броиме ситно до заминувањето на годината што влијаеше исклучително силно во сите сфери на нашите животи, и светот на патувањата засекогаш ќе остане променет од […]

­A language story about Lindsay Williams Dobuan is a language spoken by about 100.000 people on an island off the coast of Papua New-Guinea.

Yet, in a small-town library in the middle of England, language enthusiast Lindsay Williams was quite surprised to stumble […]
