When you first think of Albania, you may ask yourself “Isn’t it dangerous?” and “Is that even in Europe?” Speak to those who have been, and the you’ll hear of rippling mountains, Ottoman architecture, pristine beaches and endlessly hospitable locals set within a Mediterranean climate with virtually no tourists.Following decades of isolationist rule, this rugged land still doesn’t seem to fit into the grand continental jigsaw. With its distinctly exotic feeling, unique cuisine and customs, you should pay a visit to this beguiling corner of Europe now, before it garners the popularity it deserves.
What could be better than a morning hike through the untouched wilderness, swimming in the pristine lakes followed by yoga in the serene and beautiful surroundings of Albania’s meadows and vineyards?
“As often as possible, go some place you’ve never been before. Experience new places and new things. You might find yourself with someone or somewhere that makes you much happier than your previous circumstance.” ~ Dalai Lama
