Day 190: Albania, land of the warmest smiles

Morning Coffee in Gjirokastra

Didn’t sleep well last night. Not sure what kept us up more: the coffee and raki (aniseed flavoured liquor sipped straight up, this is the albanian vodka) that Mario invited us to, or the thought of leaving this country which unexpectedly became our home away from home, our family away from family.

第一百八十五、八十八和八十九天: 阿爾巴尼亞,我愛妳!

在阿爾巴尼亞的下半部分很忙,而且非常陶醉於與當地人的交流,根本沒有時間寫下我的深情日記!那程痛苦的巴士經歷後我們抵達吉諾卡斯特 (Gjirokastra),與培拉特 (Berat) 同被列為世界文化遺產的小鎮。這裡的古城比培拉特的大,人們都在有歷史有味道的建築物和大街小巷游走,不像有「千窗之鎮」美譽的 (“town of thousand windows”) 培拉特般只集中在一個位置;但驟眼看卻帶點恐怖,彷彿充滿神秘烏鴉的疆屍片拍攝場地。 Continued 繼續看…

哈哈,今天是值得紀念的日子!我們已在途上半年了!雖然身體出現了些怠倦,但心靈上仍很熾熱,仍很期待餘下來旅程中的未知數 - 阿爾巴尼亞的小鎮風情、保加利亞的修道院、羅馬尼亞的山景、塞爾維亞的霸權過去,當然更重要的是中東的回教氣息和文化! Continued 繼續看…

Day 181: 6 months on the road!

Theth – a tranquil village in a far-flung corner of Albania

We’re in Albania! A country so foreign to me but I don’t feel foreign here at all. We got our first taste of Albanian roads the way they’re described in Lonely Planet:

“..driving on mountain ‘roads’… is a whole new field of extreme sport. Cars, furgons, trucks and buses do go off the edge.”
