In april this this year I went to Tirana a couple of days. So when I arrived at Tirana a couple of weeks ago, I decided to have a relaxing stay at Tirana Backpackers hostel and do a bit of sightseeing along the way.
My days in the city consisted of chilling with the dogs and some nice people I met at the hostel, have a bit of hammock time, visited one of my favorite beautyshop Fresh Line, went up on the clock Tower, wandered the small streets in the city centre, watched the chaotic traffic for a while with a smoothie of the Albanian version of The Coffee Company, meeting up with my internship supervisor, did a bit of driving on the wrong side of the road, went to a really beautiful souvenir shop where they sold pretty carpets and costume parts, and enjoyed the rural area of Tirana for a bit.
Cool thing about this hostel was the fact that they made a mini ‘museum’ with objects from the Tirana Scientific Museum which closed down a while ago.
Jup, very relaxed indeed. As they say here in Albania: Avash Avash (take it easy). (:
