Land of the Eagles
Whats It Like?
There are plenty of mountains to go climb and explore. They have the plains to the west if mountains aren't your style. They get very warm summers but they are nice a clear skys not much rain. Winters are cold and wet so I'd go during the summer.
How to fit in
If you know any of Italian, Greek, French, German, or English. You will be just fine walking the streets of Albania. The locals are very generous the will want you to come for dinner right when they see you even though they will be using a months worth of food to feed you.
What to know
For one it is very rude to reject hospitality or to reject payment even though they might be giving you all their money. What Albanians value the most is happiness, respect, love, honesty, and responsibility.
