Personal comments:

We skipped through Macedonia quickly (due to bad weather), but what we saw of the countryside was stunning. A word of warning though; a Macedonian official on the Serbia/Macedonia border tried to get a bribe off us by telling us that the green card for a motorhome was normally 230 Euros, but he'd do it for us for 50 Euros. It is only 50 Euros for motorhomes; don't be fooled, and don't pay a bribe!
