This past weekend, I traveled to a rather peculiar destination if you ask most Europeans: Tirana, capital of Albania. Due to the country's isolation from the rest of the world for a large portion of the last century, it is surrounded by many myths, no less thanks to the movie Taken. Albanians are generally assumed to be criminals active in the sex and drug trade, and many people are afraid of traveling to Albania.
I found a decently priced flight from Athens to Tirana on Skyscanner and decided I'd make up my own mind, rather than listening to what other people who have never been to the country say. I didn't expect much, but went to Tirana with an open mind. I was pleasantly surprised and have to say that I liked Tirana even more than other cities in the region.
