A Travellerspoint blog


A new experience

sunny 27 °C

Albania is like no-where we have been before
People have only been learning to drive for the last 20 years so it seems like every man for himself on the road. Thankfully our bus driver is familiar with this and so knew what he was doing. We were able to visit our first ever mosque, and took our shoes off and had an interesting look around.
People in Albania also are unable to get a mortgage, so many houses are only partially built, as they earn more money they can build a little more.
It is a fascinating place to visit, and drive through, but now we have been there, we are happy to move on to the next stop of Macedonia.

Sounds fascinating. Although a little bit scary. I remember feeling a bit like we'd stepped back hundreds of years in terms of people's standard of living when we went to rural Hungary. Albania sounds more extreme than that.

Keep enjoying your holiday. Nothing of note to head home for. Crap election stuff on tv, wet and cold starting to set in - generally unappealing! Although can't complain. Unlike Albanians, at least most of us have a full house to go home to!
