This was probably the nicest part of the journey so far. There was hardly any traffic, plenty of lakes to swim in and we found the best wild camping spots so far. A few times we camped right at the edge of the lake and due to the 800m altitude no mosquitos!
The second night we were just about to go to sleep and two playful stray dogs came bounding up, they stayed outside the tent all night and the next day one of them followed us for 40km into Struga. The dog easily managed 14kph but struggled if we went faster so the journey took a while. On the way we found three more tiny stray puppies at a bus stop. It’s a shame you can’t help them all.
Ohrid town was really nice and well worth a visit if you go to Macedonia.
