Have you considered that you may be one of the luckiest people on Earth?
Kosovo was a bit of a surprise for me: no tanks, barbed wire fences or military personnel. Just friendly people living an interesting culture.
No people, no shops, nothing. Just rocks, a shoddy road and us. Then the road ends. To get to where it begins again, you have to take a boat for 4 hours and travel 30km up the river.
Once upon a time a guy on a bicycle pedalled across Montenegro to Albania. The End.
