Croatia & Albania, July 2019

Zadar, Iz, Shkoder, Tirana, transit.

Contains 309 photos, the last of which were added 2 years, 2 months, 12 days, 7 hours, 20 minutes, and 17 seconds ago.

A week on the beautiful island of Iz, off Zadar, at the vegetarian hotel Korinjak. Daily yoga and meditation, swimming in the sea, trips the tiny island in the bay, a few hours hiking across to the other side of Iz, and lots and lots of hammocktime.

A week in Shkoder, Albania. Walking tours, castle on a hill, afternoon bike ride to the lake and a swim, Marubi photography museum, cafe working, and a super nice hostel called North Hub. Everyone I met in Albania was very friendly and spoke excellent English. Shkoder is a super chill town, with spacious pedestrianised main streets, and lots of nice cafes. The lake and castle are in longish walking distance, or an easy bike ride. Everyone cycles in Shkoder.

A day and a half in Tirana, Albania. Eating, wandering, and up to the Sky Tower restaurant (reputed nausea-inducing rotating Bar is closed for renovations) to watch the sun set over the city. Pretty cool place, I'll come back.
