Gornjane 1Less than half an hour drive from here, we live on the 13th floor, wrapped in plastic – walls covered with styrofoam insulation, pvc windows, sticky air and constant buzz of traffic noise.
Smart people live here in the village of Gornjane, where all houses are made from adobe and mud mortar. Nearby is the monastery from the 14th century.
It is peculiar how all these structures survived a heavy earthquake sixty years ago, unlike modern buildings in the Skopje valley where almost everything was demolished.
My mum was born in a house like this and she is always telling me what a fun was to make a muddy mixture for houses by treading.
Maybe someday we will move back closer to the ground where houses are natural, healthier and safer and air smells of fresh breeze.

Çuka e Ajtoit 1Hiking to a fortificated ancient area Çuka e Ajtoit is always an adventure. It is one of the most important ancient fortification in Albania, the scenery is thrilling, as well as the view ones you get to the top of the fortress. Çuka e Ajtoit is located in the south part of Albani, between Butrinti (the famous archeological site) and Konispoli. The village in the foothill is called Çiflik.

The fortification belongs to 4th Century B.C to one of the most important tributes of Kaonia in Epir. They were the tribute extended in all this territory. And the site continued from 4 th century B.C to Roman period until the late antiquity.

Nice walk, nature and rich history – what a lovely day to spend!

Maja KotorThe sun is shining in my town. Spring is coming; it can be felt in the air. In Kotor, that can mean only one thing – festive occasions! Even though, everything is different this year, something remains the same: the town has “disguised itself” and, still, shines in all its beauty. Colourful like this, it only spreads positive energy… And I am not noticing it is empty.

village Velja glavaWhile hiking in the Župske mountains, we stumbled upon a mill that resists the ravages of time in the village Velja glava, municipality Aleksandrovac. We were surprised to see inside a lady in her eight decade, Mrs. Dragica Filipović, who is successfully grinding flour to the locals of this village and surrounding villages in a traditional way, which is hundreds of years old, and very hard to find these days. What a joy!

Zeljko.Boban.2This was my first time to visit this scenic and amazing town of Grožnjan. And what a lovely surprise, a day of Ex Tempore! Hundreds of artists, painters, creative persons all around and through every little charmy streets, it was incredible and wonderful. Grožnjan is often called the most artistic place in whole Istria, and you know what, it's a true. Local music everywhere, you can feel festivity and you feel very special...
Wines, truffles, local products, even mandarines from Neretva, honey...
Scenic town in a scenic surround!

IMG 20200816 154858High on the mountain (Vranica), far away from the nearest small town (Fojnica), and hidden in the middle of the country (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Prokoško Lake is a well preserved pearl, which testifies possibility of achieving harmony between the nature and buildings. Here, natural and physical structures are part of a unique landscape, so that traditional vernacular architecture revives and complements the context of this small part of the Dinaric massif. A specific landscape with the fragmented physical structure of wooden cottages, scattered on the lake shores, evoks a kind of romantic and nostalgic feeling towards the archetypal habitat, which regardless of the time distance, forms a part of an emotional homeland.
