We're a couple that plan to do the PoB route in the end of September till ~October 8th, start&end in Theth. We're aware that this is a bit in the end of the season/off-season and therefore:
1) are there an deserted villages that we should not expect an accommodation? and if so, which villages we should expect to be like that?
2) Is there any market/place that we can buy basic groceries for lunch along the route?
3) How much water do you recommend to take per day (can we fill from springs or…
I want to visit Albania in mid October.
Can I depend on the Corfu ferry to be running every day, and on time or near enough? I've read stories, dating back a few years, of the ferry not running, with no warning.
I want to make my way from the south to Tirana, then fly back from there.
Where could I hear live folk music?
I am vegetarian. Will that be much of a problem? I eat fish ok.
What will the temperatures be like?
I will probably have other questions too, so thanks in advance!
I am going to Tirana for three days. Is there any interesting place nearby Tirana to do a day excursion (go and back the same day)? Any fleamarket for old things in Tirana? Interesting places to visit in Tirana?
I've searched through the forums and although there is some existing information on this topic, I wanted to make sure I was using the most recent info.
Does anyone have any recent experience of traveling from Tirana to Pristina by bus? Or perhaps a link to a timetable... if such a thing exists? Looking for times for Thursday 22nd September.
we'll be travelling around Albania for a couple of weeks (three people).First up in mountain area with public transport.
Later to Berat, albanian riviera, Butrint and Girokastra... for this second part of journey, is it worth hiring a car or is it possible to do it with public transport? is it feasible taking taxi from one town to another or is it very costly? Thanks
So I planned a trip to Albania through Macedonia and crossing over to Kosovo. I knew there were no visa restrictions for British nationals but just read my passport has to be valid for 6 months. My passport expires in 2 months! Has anyone been barred from entering before because of this?
Wondering how limited I may be in October in travelling in Albania? We are a nature-loving 50+ couple to be joined by 20+ children for a week in October. We are wondering how limited the weather may make us, and at that, how long to give for our stay in Albania, bearing in mind that we are not big site-seers. Alternatively we are checking into Slovenia or perhaps combining the two for a longer stay, which is likely to involve an additional flight. Would appreciate info and opinions. Thx.
I'm liking for a pretty, traditional smallish Albanian fishing village kind of place on the sea or river. Or at least small and pretty and traditional. That I can get to by bus or train. I'm older. Experienced woman traveller but want some place safe with a nice little hotel budget style. Would appreciate any help. Many thanks
Can you recommend a hostel for 1 cool
Older woman experienced traveler in Tirana or a budget hotel. Need something clean, Safe, quiet, easy to get to. Thanks. If not in Tirana how about Skopya in Macedonia?
Hi. We are an American middle-aged couple visiting family in Prishtina in mid-September. We might visit Skopje or Prizren (or both) with them. Then we will have 3 days and nights on our own. That's not much time. Difficult deciding between Montenegro or Albania (and where within either country). We will probably rent a car. We like old European village and city life...cafe's, old streets, etc and hiking in interesting scenery (mountain and shore). We also are kind of foodies but don't like…
