I have diced that I will take up blogging again – my motivation hasn’t been the greatest in the last two years. So here we go again!!!!
I hope that the “new editor” and I will agree – is one of the reasons why I decided to stop blogging. Hate that “new” set-up with the blocks.
One cake every day is all about my Christmas in Skopje, North Macedonian. You that knows me … also know that I do my best to avoid Christmas. But I have been to most countries that don’t celebrate Christmas. Istanbul is my all-time favourite, but with COVID going on… I have put Istanbul on hold until October this year.
So Google so willing told me what countries that don’t celebrate Christmas North Macedonian came up and I more or less made my mind up straight away.
Also, I have made friends with the most wonderful women, Maggie and Gordana, through the team playing in Gurushots, The World’s Greatest Photo Game. Gordana lives in North Macedonia .. in Prilep, about 2.5 hours drive from Skopje. So she invited me to join her and her family for the New Year.
Maggie, our team leader flew in 3 days after me, she lives in Lisbon, wanted to join up with me and then spend time with Gordana too.
So it wasn’t only one piece of cake every day, it was also more or less a new friend every day too.
I rent a lovely apartment (through Booking.com) with the best location in Skopje … only a couple of steps from Macedonia Square on the fabulous Boulevard Makedonija, Antonina Apartment.
Just opposite my street entrance is there a cafe “Bistro” and the first evening I thought it was a bistro and thought they had warm food, but one of the staff members walk a couple of more steps to the square and there is a restaurant. When I left I told him that I will be back for coffee and cake the next day.
That is what it became … a different pâtisserie every day for 6 days. Best of all, none of them contained any calories. *laughing
Let the story begin ..
