In Corfu day trips say " must warn you if you go to Albania you must go with an open mind".
From my own experience, I can say many do not. Many tourists going from Corfu arrive then decide Albania is not for them and do a u-turn back.
Albania is a former Communist country. It was so Communist it didn't even want to be friends with other communist nations notably including the Soviet union.
To get there from Corfu is only an hour. You take a 80s style boat and listen to music from a similar period. My journey there in 2011 was accompanied by Broken Wings by Mr. Mister. The beaches here are pebbled and look very Italian Riveria.
In 2011, there were many roads still under construction. Ice cream and beer is cheap and a drive out of Sarande reveals there is a bit of a garbage problem here.
What's on your mind?
