We wanted to do it cheap as I always do.
I think the whole trip was around 1000€
Accomodation randing from 7-25€/per night
Around =400€ Max. total.
A nice mixture between the old and the new. Not many countries in Europe has farm animals on the road anymore.
View of Berat town.
There was a lot of close by little cities in Albania.
Most of them didnt have too much to see.
Just a beach or a castle. Nothing special.
A lot of them only worth 2 nights maximum, then you have seen it all.
The most bizarre pizza place we walked in to. Weeknight @ 4 in the morning they had 14 people working there. No customers. Albanian efficiency. Any time now somebody might order 100 pizzas. This pic shows guys making us one Pizza 🙂
Albania is the home of this beautiful pyramid? I don’t know what it was for but you can climb it for good views. A great reminder of the past communistic dictatorship that they went trough.
If theres something unique to Albania, it is the bunkers. Fun fact: Theres over 700,000 bunkers built in the country – one for every four inhabitants with an average of 24 bunkers for every square kilometre of the country. They were just hysterical of somebody coming and attacking Albania. In reality, no one gave a shit about Albania 😀
Initially I was hesitant to see this many places in such a short time but it ended up working
pretty fine and it didnt feel like we were in too big of a hurry since travelling didnt take that
That was the Balkans, my first and only real travel this year. I completed 3 new countries which was the goal for the year and now its time to get back to the grind. Grind school, grind sales.
That was a good one month worth of vacation. I think it was about my maximum, any longer and it would be too long.
It is difficult for me to let go and waste time just idling around. I hoped to get some work done too and I got a little bit. In the future I would love to combine work and vacation in to one. That is something I am striving to do.
It was a nice trip. First time I am really traveling with fiends, I have always done these by myself. This was a little different as I have limited control over things, overall though all went fine and it was fun.
I don’t think I will do any more backpacking for couple years now.
I will be back home till Christmas, exchange study in Spain till summer. Have a half a gap year next fall and see where I am then. Hopefully able to self-sustain myself somewhere warm and sunny 🙂
