Oh, haven't heard of that, what's there?

THanks for helping with all my questios btw!

I see it used to have 365 churches and is a UNESCO site :)

How would I get there, bus - direct? Costs/durations? Have you been there?

Thiink I'd go to Tirane then to Ohrid then north to the capital then end the trip in Sofia, or north to Belgrade.

I travelled they other way around. From Ohrid a bus to the border, than a minibus from Pogradec to Tirana, stayed a while over there, than on to Durres. By train the last bit, recommended. Dirt cheap and back then (2003) it was an old Vienna subway with broken windows and dirty seats...fantastic;)
Ohrid is just a nice place, good food and restaurants, nice views, culture and the lake.
It's pretty cheap getting around Albania and Macedonia, although I didn't find accommodation that cheap, still ok though.
You're welcome by the way. You do have lots of plans haven't you
