Observations from Kosovo

Nights spent in country: 3 Currency: Euro Religion: Predominately Muslim Kosovo was a beautiful country. 20140913-DSC_2533 Filled with beautiful people. 20140914-DSC_2556 There was an outward affection for America and Americans, as evidenced by the friendly greetings we received once we revealed our U.S. citizenship. This is likely due to America’s involvement in helping Kosovo gain independence from Serbia. 20140915-DSC_2605 The country’s landscape was noticeably scarred in areas due to the Kosovo War (1998-99), the most recent warzone we’ve ridden through so far. 20140915-DSC_2608 Both cities we visited—Gjakove and Prizren—consisted of young, hip residents; thumping clubs; and Peja on draught. 20140913-DSC_2554 The call to prayer boomed from many mosques, reverberating off of buildings in the city and echoing over hills in the countryside. 20140915-DSC_2617

    It was very nice to see all these pictures from my home land and specially when I know that they are posted from an American citizen The Lazy Biker. We as Albanians from KOSOVO can never appreciate enough America and American citizens for all the help that they provided to my country/people all the time and specially during the war on 1998-99.
    Thank you very much The Lazy Biker and all Americans.

      Hi Lumni! Thank you so much for taking the time to post these kind words for us to read. The people we met in Kosovo were just as beautiful as the country itself. We loved every bit of our visit.
