It’s always great to mix work and pleasure, and for us, this collaboration was that exactly. We organized a tour on the Via Dinarica North Macedonia together with Lonely Planet and got the chance to spend several days hiking, horse riding and just enjoying the scenery together. ‘The beauty of this trail and this country is that you can pack an incredible range of activities, culture and food into a pretty compact area,’ said Mr Donev, whose multi-tasking, Skopje-based company Mustseedonia designs tailor-made trips and promotes responsible tourism across a country about the size of Vermont. ‘This makes Macedonia a perfect place to visit because you get both a pristine landscape and a chance to learn about history with a trek back in time to Europe’s old-world roots. I am glad we’re getting to see it now – because we will have to fight to keep it this way.’
