Ohrid, Macedonia

During our short time in Pogredec, Albania, our generous hosts, Nehemiah Gateway, took us for a day trip across the border to Ohrid, Macedonia.  This charming town sits right on Lake Ohrid, a beautiful clear lake in between the two countries.  On our day trip, we strolled around the town, visited a 4th century fortress, and stopped by Naum Monastery on the way back to Pogredec.  The monastery was my favorite stop - a peaceful place nestled into the mountains, looking out onto the blue water, and peacocks adorning its corners and nooks.
