It was those insect bites, dehydration or those dodgy vitamin tablets which you will be glad to hear I have thown away!
Around 9.00am, I got the train tickets, I got the train tickets for Skopje, booked the hostel and headed off into the city centre along the main road (Egnatia) and then diagonally down to the sea front where I walked all the way across to the White Tower.
From here, I headed north, past the Byzantine Arch and to the Rotunda. I spent a while ambling along the streets of the Byzantium churches before fatigue for the better of me and I decided to head back (after about four miles of walking) for an afternoon siesta.
After my nap, I set off into the city again this time heading north and following the city wall. I then headed south past the main street to the main square where I sat and watched the choppy harbour for an hour or so. Again, felling tired, I returned to the hotel. Tom (the English lad next door) invited me to have some Jack Daniels before bed.
