After Croatia, our plan was to make our way down the coast towards Southern Albania. We travelled through Montenegro, which was absolutely beautiful. Lots of beautiful villages and beaches along the coast and hill tops, I already am kicking myself that we didn’t consider any time here, #nexttime. But, we wanted to get to Albania so we could chill out before we needed to be in Greece. We spent one night in Shkodër and had a great meal (Greek salad, grilled vegetables and a large slice of gorgonzola for me), and continued to Sarandë for 2 nights. We took this time to chill out – which involves eating and laying in beach loungers to read our books. All of the food we ate in Albania was consistently good (including the best squid I could ever imagine), which is always a nice reflection on a country.
