Expectations of North Macedonia and Greece

With my trip to North Macedonia and Greece coming up, I wanted to share some things I am expecting and later I will write on once I get there.

I'm less than a month away from a dream vacation with my best friend. He's from North Macedonia and his family still resides there. I've never been to Europe so this should be an interesting trip, to say the least.

I guess when thinking about what to expect, I just think of how nice people from North Macedonia are. Well, at least I've read that, but I've also seen it firsthand from my friend's family. I know they will be so welcoming and they are already eager to meet me, according to my friend. I honestly can't wait to spend a month with them in such a beautiful place. I've done so much research about the culture and the nightlife.

One thing I know to expect is the impeccable attire everyone wears while going out at night. They dress to the nines and I'm honestly worried that I won't fit in. I'm not really a person who dresses up in fabulous clothing and jewelry. I'm more of a t-shirt and pants/shorts kind of girl. But in knowing what to expect for nightlife, I should be able to pack accordingly. Well, I say that I'll probably still be severely underdressed.

Another thing I can't wait for is the food! From the little bit of Macedonia food my friend has cooked for me, I absolutely cannot wait to get loads of traditional Macedonia cuisine. Based on what my friend has told me, it seems like his mother will be spoiling us with her, what I'm sure is, amazing cooking!


But as far as Greece goes, I am about to live my Momma Mia dream! I've already asked if we could dance in the streets of Greece while playing Abba. To which my friend happily agreed. I don't think he is as big of an Abba fan as I am, but I know he wants me to have the best experience so of course, he's going to dance around like a lunatic with me. I think that's one of the reasons we are so close, he lets me act foolish while also joining in so I'm not the only one looking insane.

With that being said, I have looked forward to this trip for two months now and it's getting closer and closer. However, I am definitely not ready for the long flights that await us. There will be so many layovers and customs, and much anticipation. But I do know one thing, I'm going to fall in love with both places. I can just feel it!
