So Zhaklina, a friend I will meet in Macedonia, told me that it should be a 10-12 hour bus ride from Sarajevo to Skopje.
I was a little shocked.
I found a web site that confirmed the 12 hour estimate. And the only bus leaves Sarajevo at 8:30pm (Tues&Fri), so most of the travel will be at night. I was kind of hoping to see the countryside. Now, what is so shocking is that the distance is only 222 miles between Sarajevo and Skopje. Folks, that's 18.5mph. If the terrain dictates that we have to go that slow, wouldn't it be best to do this in the light? I wonder how much a plane ticket would cost?
