Camping in Albanien

Dass Albanien ein Land im Aufbruch ist, tut sich, auch was die Campingplätze angeht, viel. Es wird auf-, ab- und umgebaut, so dass Reiseführer offensichtlich Schwierigkeiten haben, aktuell zu bleiben. Wir haben teilweise wild gecampt, was in Albanien erstens erlaubt...

Giftschlangen in Afrika

In Albanien haben wir uns an eine Furcht erinnert, mit der wir uns vor unserer Auszeit in Afrika auseinandersetzen müssen: Giftschlangen!!! In München kommt man seltener mit gefährlichem Getier in Berührung, aber in Albanien sind wir erstaunlich vielen Schlangen...

Albania

Now we are on our way to ALBANIA! Wow we never thought we would say that when we were kids. We needed to make a stop to stock up on supplies for the ferry. The boat leaves at 10 pm, but the check in closes at 7 (actually 9, but on line it says 7). We arrived at 615 to...

Just an ordinary day on the road

Just an ordinary day on the road

    The previous night we had spent next to an ancient bridge … only the next morning a passer-by informed us that this site is “famous” for dangerous falling rocks from the nearby cliff. Well, we survived!         We...
