Albania: The Labëria Highlands & Ionian Coast – Day 7

Saturday 28th September – Tirana & Home
After an early breakfast when we said goodbye to our fellow travellers – most of who were leaving on an earlier flight – we had the morning free for our own exploration of Tirana. There’s not much to say except here are some of the photographs.
Ismail Qemali - founder of the modern state of Albania in 1912

Monument commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Albania

Close up of the monument: Gent's ancestor's signature

Old bridge near archaeological dig

Optical illusion? Or does this building get wider as it gets higher?

Skanderbeg: national hero

Skanderbeg and the Ethim Beg mosque

Boris bikes? Or Skanderbeg cycles?

  1. D'oh. Meant to comment ages ago on this but forgot! It's been very interesting reading about this trip. I must take the time to explore more of Albania next time I'm down that way.
