This blog mainly concentrates on providing information that will help in living or travelling in Malaysia. However, I do blog a little about trips abroad. On my recent trip to the Balkans I’ll do a series of short blogs providing one anecdote per country, and then a few assorted photos of the country unrelated to the anecdote.
Greece didn’t really work out for me, because it just rained while I was there – from Corfu, and the west coast to the east. My plan for rain was to keep on moving until I got away from it. But at least I managed to track down a gyros in Greece. On my first night there, in fact, in Igoumenitsa. It’s the Greek name for what I’d call a kebab, or doner kebab. The gyros from the shop next to the hotel, some wine and an apple from the supermarket, and a couple of Baklava from the cake shop. But the Baklava was the star – the nicest baklava I’ve ever had. And another gyros the next afternoon at the rail station in Thessaloniki – which meant I could use their WiFi to make a hotel booking for that night.

Oh yes, and the driver on the bus I took from Thessaloniki to Macedonia was Nicolas Sarkozy, and one of the passengers was Kirsten Stewart.
