Albania 2018 Day 6. A hut somewhere in the Jungle to Colin Petran. We woke up to a morning of sun again, and yet again defied the weather forecasts predicting thunderstorms. We have not got wet so far with only rain in the evening or overnight. A climb to start the day after a decent breakfast of CHEESE, bread and garlic dip, fried egg and lovely cherry jam. Yesterday we saw cherry picking and punnets for sale at the roadside. The ascent was very pleasant with snow and glaciers to our left across the valley with the road winding around the outcrops and on our maps looking like someone’s small intestine. The road was a bit rough and potholes but manageable.Later we were taken on a 10km descent on a new road with sweeping bends and ... read more

Albania 2018 Day 4. Pogradec to Korce 63km, 600m ascent. Luckily the weather forecast was wrong yet again and we awoke to glorious sunshine after another great meal last night. We started with the usual comprehensive salad and cheese, of course since I cannot eat cheese. Roast vegetables and the specialty Koran fish, which is only found in the nearby lake of Ohrid. I don’t know if should say this but quite a few of the group are now drinking red wine. At 8.30 we set off to ride along the lake to Macedonia to visit the St Nahum Temple. First of all we had to tackle the border police and get our passports stamped as we left Albania. Thinking I was then in Macedonia I rode around the corner only to be confronted by another ... read more

Amy had a great day out in Albania today. We crossed over from Ohrid and visitied the very nice town of Pogradec on the banks of Lake Ohrid. Mum and Dad were very happy with the coffee on offer while Amy enjoyed watching the boats go past. We then went on to the city of Korca, described somewhere as the "Paris of Albania". Hmmm....maybe that's a bit of a stretch. The best bit by far was when we visited a nice outdoor beer garden with lovely sausages and Amy got to play on the swings there. What we saw of Albania we liked, although we definitely need to come back someday and spend more time here to properly explore the country.... read more

No, obviously I'm not in Albania but I can't blog without listing location but a hiccup in the program vs iPhone makes ut challenging! So Albania it is. I survived a Saturday night in Killarney, from the chocker blocked pubs to the techno nightclub my hotel room was so conveniently placed above it was a good night! Mind you the pints of Guiness and Smithwicks I'm sure helped me vibrate my way to sleep gently (thump.thump.woowoo). Yesterday I was feeling a wee bit like a caged bird who needed to stretch her wings when the perfect opportunity showed itself . After a quaint morning of cool villages, (Adare) cobblestone streets and lovely views, we arrived in Killarney and I had a free afternoon. So after standing in a doorway during a torrential downpour for half hour ... read more
