Hey brothers and sisters from the Balkans and you... who love the Balkans, join the family! :)
THE BALKANS is the historic and geographic name used to describe a region of southeastern Europe.
The region has a combined area of 550,000 km² (212,000 sq mi) and an approximate population of 55 million people. The archaic Greek name for the Balkan Peninsula is the Peninsula of Haemus (Χερσόνησος του Αίμου, Chersónisos tou Aímou). The region takes its name from the Balkan Mountains which run through the centre of Bulgaria into eastern Serbia.
WHY MAFIA :)?
Once upon a time there were few balkanians: A serbian guy Rade, greek lady called Maria, greek guy Dimitris (living in Paris) and a female bulgarian representative with (they say) a Godmother potential... They didn't know each-other, but it was a destiny and just meant to happen... It was predicted that the Balkans will unite one day...
In one beautiful day of the year 2006, the balkanians met in a couchsurfing chat room. Since they were not so hard-working during this time... they were spending quite a lot of time talking to each-other and discussing different hot & very important topics with other couch-surfers... Who had to win the football match last night, Is it better to drink whiskey or tequila, George Cloony or Antonio Banderas... How are we going to safe the world... of course... And some other insoluble questions like: Is it better to go to Brazil or Cuba...
Against all expectations and history... the balkanians were always supporting each-other... like brothers and sisters... like family... All the others were trying to provoke the new-born family and make it split... That's why the balkanians started to joke that they are the Balkan mafia and better nobody mess with them...
Since then many many new members have joined the family & it keeps growing... Well, as I said in the beginning... It was just meant to be... Balkans unite :)!
The spirit of our group is just infectious...
Thank you for making this union come true!
Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do!
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion too...!
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace!
You may say that we're dreamers,
But we're not the only ones!
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as Balkan mafia one! ;-)))))))
