New Year, New Ideas

The north of Albania is rapidly developing into "the next hot thing" on the European trekking scene.  And rightfully so.  This article has piqued my interest in fleeing to the mountains again.  I'll risk a little copyright violation to give you a taste of the stunning landscape that awaits you  in a new year and a new place.

How Will You Keep Them Down On The Farm...?

Modern Farmer magazine has turned its gaze on Albania and the result is an article full of gorgeous photography and praise for the gastronomic products of Albania's agricultural enterprises.  I highly recommend you take the time to read Albania Mania.  There's a little something for every taste there.  Be warned, though, that a young farmer lured into Albania may never be able to return to the ordinary life he left behind.

Kindred Spirits

If you've read any of my previous posts on wandering the rugged roads of Albania, you will know why this article struck a chord with me.  Not only does it describe and area I have yet to pass through, but it has characters I identify strongly with.  I'm just not sure if I'm the adventurous Brit or the foul-mouthed German.  Maybe a bit of both.   It's a good read from either perspective.
