Albania - The Road Less Traveled

5 years ago

I want to travel to as many countries as possible someday, so I decided I would do some research on ones that I don`t know much about and share it with everyone.

I have to say when I first started to look up information on Albania, I was not very interested and did not expect to spend much time seeing what the country had to offer. But when I saw that had ranked Albania as one of their Top 10 countries to visit in 2011, I decided to delve a little deeper.

I hope I don`t offend anyone here, but what I found was actually not too exciting for me. From what I gather Albania is pretty much what I thought it would be like, a former Soviet block country that is slowly bringing their way into the 21st century. To some that may be exactly what they are looking for, but it really isn`t for me.

Albania is located on the coast of the Adriatic sea and actually borders Greece, Macedonia, Kosovo and Montenegro. Because of the unique location, Albania does offer a lot of old world culture and charm that can`t be found most places in the world. Because of that, I believe is why many recommend you visit there soon as that could all slowly change in the next 5-10 years. There are several historical sites throughout the country that are almost untouched since the Ottoman Empire occupied the region and there is a long coastline to enjoy as well.
