Albania! I had a server in Tirana who asked me "Why do you come to Albania?". I responded "Why should I not come to Albania?" This country had decades of communistic past and they isolated themselves for years. It was a true communist country where people wore the same clothes, no religion and no cars! The only cars were state cars and everyone walked or rode donkey carts until the early 90s. To see how the country has developed in almost 30 years is what I find intersting, The streets are filled with modern day music, cars are everywhere and art fills the street. I know that this country is still unknown to most and that is why I wanted to spend a few days getting to know it. There were many other tourists, many solo travelers, from around the world who were just as curious. We all said that we wanted to see Albania before everyone else realized how cool the country really is.

Virtually untouched by tourism, this gem of a country has it all: crystal clear-turquoise beaches; ancient fortresses; Alps that rival Switzerlnd; a vibrant and fascinating culure full of warm, friendly people; and lots and lots of coffee!

Albania is filled with the most generous and amazing people I've met during my travels. I'll never forget their hospitality and kindness and this country will always be one of my favourites.

The Albanian Riviera is a stunning secret - for now. Go before the world finds out.

Right above Greece, this country is new to tourism. Recently opened borders from a strict communist control, the natives are so excited to meet foreigners. Country is drop dead gorgeous with amazing beaches and mountains. Super cheap.
