Skopje is the capital of Macedonia.
It is 2 very distinctive sides to it with the modern buildings and known for its tons of statues versus its traditional part dating back 2000 years, complete with fortress, grand old bazaar, monastery and mosques. It is also well known to many as being the birthplace of Mother Teresa.
Having researched a little before visiting we knew of the many statues, but nothing quite prepared us for the volume. They are literally everywhere and in some parts of town music is piped in too. It is quite surreal and almost felt like being somewhere like Universal Studios.
It has the traditional stone bridge from the ottoman days but we really liked walking over the more modern bridge adorned with yet more statues.

🇬🇧 The second week of April shown just on a single picture 🤩📸
As you know (or not 😅), in previous post I wrote I've been in Warsaw for a few days in April. That's why I wanted to say something about my adventures in this wonderful metropolis. Let's go! 😁😜
I've visited Warsaw every year since 2011 so it's not a foreign place to me! It was possible mostly because my dad still works here as a soldier so accomodation and finding company for my first trips in this city were not a big problem 😁 This year I actually have been here thrice... in April, in June (a few days before the end of my previous school year) and in August. In April, I was not sightseeing as much as in upcoming months, however, I cannot say I had done nothing in that time 😜
This photo was taken in the top of viewing tower located next to the Castle Square, probably the most famous historic square in this city (at least I think it's the most recognisable, thanks to the Sigismund's Column 😁). It would be such a shame to say that but I've discovered that viewing point pretty late, 8 years after my first walk through the Old Town 😅😬

Explore your city...and once you think you’ve explored it all, explore it again ❤️ I have walked through on this path more times than I can count but walking through it on this day in particular after the perfect blanket of snow had fallen while standing in that lonely park watching this strangers beautiful commute to work...I promise you it was like I was seeing it for the first time ❄️
History is what makes the present intriguing. If it wasn’t for what happened, places or even people for that matter, wouldn’t have existed. Since we know, Dehradun and Mussoorie were earlier colonized by the Britishers, there are some places that are present date landmarks. But do we know a little bit about what they were back in the day?
So, let’s understand them a little bit:
FRI - Established as The Imperial Forest Research Institute in the year 1906, FRI Dehradun earlier was situated at Chandhbagh, which is the current location of Doon School.

Library Chowk, Mussoorie - Established in 1843, Mussoorie Library is reckoned as the oldest literary landmark of the hill station, which was founded only 17 years after the town.
Guru Ram Rai Gurudwara - Constructed in the 17th century, Guru Ram Rai Gurudwara is the oldest pilgrimage center for Sikh Community in Dehradun.

Dehradun Central Internment Camp – This became a major prison camp for keeping German, Austrian and Italians, during the Second World War.
Kulri, Mussoorie - Kulri is a result of Captain Young and his friend Mr. Shore’s discovery in the year of 1825, when both of ‘em wanted to escape from the plain’s scorching heat.
Rajpur Road - Built to connect Mussoorie through Old Rajpur that in the present date has several houses of the British era.
