Lezhe to Albanian Border near Blato Macedonia Ugh, I can’t believe it. I’ve just looked at my day diary and see that it’s only been 2 ½ weeks since I left Albania when it feels more like 2 ½ months. How does time manage to do that with one’s senses. And given that it’s only been 2 ½ weeks I really ought to remember what I did! Oh dear. Here goes…this little goldfish will try. And it's a bit of a long one so apologies in advance. Last time I wrote I was in Lezhe. A small town, not much for a tourist to see (or rather, it’s probably best to say I didn’t see much). There is a castle, a memorial to Gjergj Kastrioti Skënderbeu, a national hero and a couple of churches, ... read more

W jajecznym rezorcie termalnym udalo nam się zjesc sniadanie. Chleb, maslo, lejąca dżemo-konfitura z niezidentyfikowanego owocu, przypominajacego zolte czeresnie i supermocna kawa. Wyjechalismy droga na Elbasan, po drodze dogadujac się w sprawie kupienia zmiotki, co wcale nie było proste. Musielismy liczyc kilometry, zeby odpowiednio skrecic, bo w planach była droga zolto-biala, niby na Kruje, ale po górach - zamiast dookoła po jakiejś potencjalnie lepszej nawierzchni. Udalo nam się skrecic z glownej drogi na miejscowość Gur i Zi, i było to ostatni drogowskaz jaki mielismy widziec przez następne 5 godzin. Zaczelo się od asfaltu - jakieś 15 km, a potem były już tylko jego resztki. Wspinalismy się po zboczu gory, wsrod lasow bukowych, coraz za zakretem otwierala się nowa panorama na bezkresne zielone szczyty. Tylko czasami mijal nas jakiś czlowiek na osiolku, może... read more

Amazingly we both got up when the alarm went off and we found ourselves sitting in Pasticeri Francaise. We both had freshly squeezed orange juice and a Pain Aux Raisin which was might impressive. It looked almost too good to eat and though very yummy I couldn't eat it all. We began to walk to one of the many bus stations and during a picture stop we met a really friendly guy. He was from the town we were going to visit, Kruja. One thing I really like about Albania is that people assume you are American but when you tell them you're English they think it is fantastic. He walked with us down to the station where he went off to do something whilst we were left to try and find a bus going to ... read more

There is this old bazzar that sold all these touristy gifts and stuff...some are coool....esp. the instrument here......but.....argh...didnt get it. The castle was another hilltop ruin.......not very interesting inside...but nice view... Besides this, really not much! haaaa. Theres a museum, but we decided not to go in...... We sat down and had some lunch and then took the bus back to Tirana.
