Museum and New Pants

KOSOVO | Fri, 18 Sep 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [334] | Comments [2]

Yesterday the original plan was to check-out and go somewhere else-and I was undecided on the other place. I was debating on another spot in Kosovo; people have recommended a few-or to leave Kosovo or go to Macedonia.  In the end-I chose neither.... Read more >

Walking Tour and Sitting on the Porch

KOSOVO | Wed, 16 Sep 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [323]

Yesterday, I went on a walking tour of Pristina. This is what I was looking forward to all along. Pristina obviously isn't a Madrid, Prague or even a Sarajevo. This is the largest city of a country that has oficially only been recognized since 2008. ... Read more >

KOSOVO | Mon, 14 Sep 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [332]

Yesterday I slept until around 7:30 am, and went for a jog around town, and went back to my room at the hotel. I then had breakfast at the free buffet. And what a buffet it was! The serving tables had all types of cereal, eggs, an omelet station, ... Read more >

Crime, Health & Cash in Kosovo

KOSOVO | Fri, 29 Jul 2011 | By safetyhub | Views [617] | Comments [1]

Kosovo - (Trigger) Happy Locals

KOSOVO | Fri, 29 Jul 2011 | By safetyhub | Views [350]

Balkan Border Issues

SERBIA | Tue, 17 May 2011 | By safetyhub | Views [1322]

OK Kosovo...We managed to not stay to long (thats the best and worse thing about Kosovo is that it feels so homely that you can end up staying for 2 weeks or more if you are not careful). We had a fantastic time there catching up with friends and exploring ... Read more >
