Lake Ohrid – Pearl of Macedonia

The deep blue water of Lake Ohrid is spectacular, and made for some fantastic kayaking! We spent about 5 days here and enjoyed the ruins of a medieval fortress, a cathedral, and a Roman amphitheatre. The little Church of St. John of Kaneo overlooks the lake and makes for some very picturesque shots. Check out the photos below.

We met up with some fellow travellers, Yaya and Baptiste, and rented a car together. Thanks again to Baptiste for driving! We took a day trip and wandered around Western Macedonia and Eastern Albania. The mountains and lakes in this area are very beautiful. Along the way we sampled some beer from the brewery in Korce – highly recommended!

From Ohrid we’ll catch a bus to the Albanian capital of Tirana. Onward and forward!

Cheers, Shawn
