The Albanian flag has a two headed eagle on it. The Albanians are very proud of their flag and it is everywhere!
Our first impressions of Albania are of a country of contrasts. The call to pray competing with the noise of the local nightclub, the numerous Mercedes cars driving amidst the donkeys and carts, the barren mountains and the lush almost jungle like valleys. The people the country lead a simple life and are all very friendly. The people in the city lead a busy westernised existence among the half completed buildings and the open drains on the footpath.
Waiting on the milk delivery.
Walking home from the market.
Why Mercedes, apparently has to do with large fuel tanks, (for fuel smuggling) and good suspension for all the dodgy roads.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
