Day trip to Albania Jan 07, 2018
Albania, official title Republic of Albania, is in southeastern Europe, capital is Tirana. I did not reach Tirana on this day trip.I was staying in Corfu Town on the island of Corfu. I took a ferry day trip to Albania from the port of Corfu town at about 9am [ i think Ionian Cruises ]in about an hour the ferry was in Saranda Albania, with passport check. Here joined the Guide and modern coach for journey to the archaeological site of Butrint. Butrint is a Greek and Roman story of southern Albania.---There was a coffee and a Lunch stop and also free time in Saranda. Currency is the Lek. Currency exchange at coffee stop.--Left by ferry at 17-30 for Corfu. A very interesting day.----Part of Albanian history is the Bunker, 173,000 bunkers were built by the Communist Goverment in the 1960s,to protect against possible invasion. They were abandoned after 1990,still a sight around Albania.
