Often when you travel you come across something unexpected or breathtaking or something to make you stop in your tracks and go “woah”. It could be beautiful blue water off the coast of a Greek island. It could be an ugly naked man snorkeling in said beautiful blue water. For me recently it was a sunset in Kosovo and it was the good kind of “woah”.
I was in Prizren, 8th-largest city in Kosovo. Being ignorant of Kosovo — like most people I guess — I was expecting lots of ugly concrete buildings and a country recovering from conflict. Instead, what I got was a quaint, charming place with nice restaurants, friendly people, and views like this from Prizren Fortress. I just had to stop, sit down, and enjoy the moment.
