About Us


Every experience in Macedonia is an enriching journey, whether as a guest enjoying someone’s hospitality, delighting in the local cuisine, or one of the many splendid wines, attending a festival or cultural event or taking an outdoor adventure.

JourneyMacedonia began in 1999 under a different name, jonivesna.com.  It started as a way for a Macedonian – American family to share our experiences with friends and family scattered on different continents.

In the days of dial-up, it was much easier to post pictures on a web-site and then send an e-mail alerting new content was posted than it was to actually e-mail pictures and choke other peoples’ bandwidth.

The original web-site grew from there to become a cultural exchange with the sole objective of promoting the treasures of Macedonia: the people and their cultural heritage while sharing our family adventures.
