The view of Lake Prespa from Galichica National Park in Macedonia. The foreground and left of the photo is in Macedonia; Albania comes in from the right and makes up the majority of the photo and meets Macedonia’s and Greece’s borders in the lake. Greece is at the far side of the lake, roughly centre of this photo.
We didn’t cross the borders here, but we did cross into Albania as we drove around Lake Ohrid, which I’ll talk about in another post. It’s amazing how insignificant borders seem in photos like this, but how much the world has been shaped by what are often arbitrary lines drawn across a map!

A monk walking through no-man’s land towards Burma.
It started when I took a picture of two girls. By the time we left, almost 20 children had come out of nowhere to crowd around the cameras.
Crossing the Thai-Myanmar Friendship Bridge into Myanmar/Burma for a visa run. The river marks the border between the two countries. The boats on the right hand bank are the illegal border crossing.
One of the most beautiful bus rides took us from Podgorica, Montenegro to Sarajevo, Bosnia. Through the mountain roads (tracks once we crossed the border into Bosnia) on a rickety old French bus with a cracked windscreen it took 7 or 8 hours. We also went over the second deepest canyon in the world, which joined on to this. Unfortunately I didn’t actually take this photo as it was Nat rather than me sitting by the window.
This bank of the river is in Poland – the far bank is in Slovakia 🙂
5am at the border of Poland (this side of the river) and the Czech Republic (the far side).
