A brief stop in Albania

Our short visit to Albania enabled us to explore a new place and avoid an overnight crossing from Italy. We visited the town of Vlore and the surrounding mountainous area, sometimes called the Albania Riviera.

We'd seen Albania's Sarande on a day tour on a previous visit to Corfu, but this is the first time we'd visited on our own boat.
