In my mind Albania was a scruffy, post-communist place. Remember Radio Tirana in the communist days? I was expecting a polluted dump. How wrong can you be!
The remains at Butrint date back to the early Greeks and were remarkable.
There are beautiful mountains, lakes and forests. Everyone we met was kind and helpful. Prices were reasonable and far less than in Corfu.
