Hotel was very close to the Bllok area with plenty of restaurants and bars, nice three lined streets. Walking distance from everything. The rooms were okay, not special, but most have nice balconies. Staff was very helpful and extremely friendly.

... sites & photos. Now I just need to go back right to the start & enter in everything...this will be done on my bus days. Today we leave Meteora in Greece for Albania. For breaky had boiled egg, cheese, yoghurt & peaches before making our way for the bus. The drive was very very long (actually a long day for me). I slept a little which I was trying to stay awake for as I want to sleep well tonight. We stopped for a quick stop before heading to the Greece ...
... while one guy stood next to him! We rearranged ourselves as people got out but it was a funny ride. The day ended with a few drinks at the hostel and a few yarns with the 3 other kiwis that were staying there.
The next morning we caught an 8am bus to Saranda. It was pouring with rain and this had us a bit worried. It turns out our worry was well-founded. The drive was terrible, the roads were like dirt tracks and the weather was shocking. We stopped after a few hours ...
