Save Place
Blue Eye, Albania
This place is in the middle of nowhere in Southern Albania. There is no bus stop. You just have to motion to the driver to pull over at the side of the road when you see a promising looking dirt trail. You take that trail off the main road, all...

I spent 4 days with my two aunts and cousin in Himare, Albania. This is one of the points on what is often called "The Albanian Riviera". It is a true wonder of the world, I think. All the beaches are less than a 20 minute drive so it's very easy...
Save Place
Balkans
Hikers and climbers are just beginning to discover the Albanian Alps. A (wide) dirt road leads up from the valley to Valbona but the government is planning to pave it, which will bring untold numbers of daytrippers to this pristine place. For now,...
Save Place
Montenegro
You don't have to stay on the famous island! Avoid "the season" and stay in one of the numerous charming hotels on the shore. Warning - you cannot visit the island, it's for guests only. But the view is free.
Save Place
Himarë, Albania
Albania is often described as unique and quirky and the country’s infamous bunkers have a lot to do with that. Former dictator Enver Hoxha had over 700,000 of them built to help protect the country from invading nations. Of course no one ever...

Blloku, Tirana, Albania

I am a sucker for an elected offical who had a career in the arts, and after my brief trip to Albania I have become a huge fan of Edi Rama. Rama, Tirana's artist-mayor, has helped Tirana start to lay claim to the title of "Most Colorful City in...

Save Place
Gjilekë, Albania
People often forget that Albania has an equally gorgeous Mediterranean coastline as Greece. Hop over to these beaches to experience similar waters with less crowd. With no one around for miles and miles, we were able to camp on this beach and...
Save Place
Koman, SH25, 4013, Albania
It takes about 3 hours to cross from Komani, a concrete pier with a restaurant, to Fierza, at the other hand of the manmade lake. The few ferries that cross the lake are old, rusted, and serve as local transport for everything from motorcycles...
Save Place
Dhërmi, Albania
At the foot of the ear-popping Longorgova Pass is the village of Dhermi, one of Albania’s beach gems. Dotted with more concrete bunkers than tourists, it caters to mostly Eastern Europeans who enjoy the low prices, golden sunsets and the fact...
