As most of you already know, we have moved to Albania as of February 21, 2011. It was not where we expected to end up but we are looking forward to the next chapter of our European adventure. When we tell people we are moving to Albania, most have exclaimed “Albania? Where is that??”. Don’t worry-we had to look it up on a map as well.
We flew from London to the capital Tirana on Monday morning, a short 2.5 hour direct flight. It was raining when we arrived and our escort was not waiting for us at the airport as planned. So while we were waiting we decided to try out some local “birre” from Korca. Then our driver arrived to take us to the city of Fier, where we are staying for the next 2 weeks in the Fier hotel. We haven’t ventured out in Fier yet but we will let you know what we discover.
For those of you who do not know much about Albania, I will be creating a new page for you to check out with some facts about this little known country.
