Still in Balkans

I am still spending my time traveling around Balkan countries.
I caught a few sunny days near the sea in Montenegro, visited beautiful city of Dubrovnic and spent a week in Bosnia and Hercogovina. Had a mixed experience there. It doesn't feel like one country at all and has croatian, bosnian and serb population. I won't be surprised if in a future BiH will separate into several different states. Cities of Mostar and Sarajevo are interesting for a day or two and nature in this country is spectacular for sure: with wild mountains in Sutjeski national park, steep rocks of Neretva river canyon and slow narrow roads. Together with german couple Roy and Dani visited Kravica waterfall not far away from Mostar. It is similar to Plitvica lakes in Croatia, just smaller. The good thing about it - there is no entrance fee and you can swim there.
Right now I am staying in Ohrid, Macedonia after crossing Albania in a day (the best hitchhiing in Balkans for sure). Here in Ohrid I met by surprise few girls I knew from Rainbow gathering in Serbia. The weather is getting worse here, autumn is in a full swing already, so we are thinking of going together to Greece in a few days.
