My name is Elena and I am a licensed tour guide and travel consultant. I was born and raised in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia. I am graduated in languages and my official job should be an interpreter from Italian to Macedonian and viceversa, but since I was young I just loved to travel a lot and this was the reason why I decided to continue my studies in the tourism field.
