      I had the opportunity to travel to Tirana, Albania in October 2008 while travelling with a friend. Neither of us knew much about Albania and had no idea what to expect. We soon found out that Albania is both a difficult and wonderful country to travel to.

      Travelling from Budva, Montenegro to Tirana was much more of a challenge than we had anticipated.


      There are no trains and few buses from Montenegro to Albania so it takes a little planning to get there. The best route that we found was taking a 20 Euro taxi ride from Ulcinj, Montenegro to Shkoder, Albania. The border is nothing but a one lane unpaved road. Don’t forget the 10 Euros needed to pay for a visa before getting to ...

      • the boarder because there are no towns or ATMs anywhere close.

        Shkoder is a nice but communist feeling city with a huge castle as its primary attraction. Once in Shkoder we found a few more travel options for getting around the country. One option was taking a train but we had heard nothing but horrible things about those. The trains are very old,

        slow, and run down. The best option we found was taking a minibus called a furgon to Tirana. These buses are cheap but have no set starting location and can be difficult to find. Your best bet is to ask around to find the one you need. Once in Tirana take advantage of the many travel agencies to get where you would like to go.
