In this Prizren Podcast (Kosovo) episode:

We discuss:

  • Feature Topic: We reveal how much it has cost us to travel the world for the last 21 months… It’s way less than staying home would have cost.
  • Local Interview: Featuring “Mr G” owner of the Prizren city hostel. We talk about the history of Prizren, advice for budget travellers and fun things to do.
  • $5 Food: Bread, Meat and Cheese… We consume some exciting local varieties and get a meal for two in a nice town centre restaurant for only $5 per person.
  • $5 Fun/Travel: We discover some fun things to do for less than $5.

We loved our time in Kosovo and were very sad to leave 🙁

We highly recommend the City Hostel, it was one of the main factors that lead to us having such a fun time. Mr G is very interactive and, along with free beer in the evenings, offers a free city walking tour for guests too.
