Gorgeous country, a bit bonkers by folkdevil
Albania is fantastic, I would recommend it to anyone.
I only visited the north, the south is the sunny, touristy bit.
Except Shkodra, which is nice.
I was there for 5 months in 1996.
Go to the mountains in the north-east – with a friendly local guide !- wonderful scenery.
I visited Fushe Arrez, Rresheni, Shkodra, Tirana and Durresi.
Bonkers language, lots of guns, great food (if you like bread and salami) and a passion for the German football team (I was there during Euro ’96).
