albania - life on the mountain

During our road trip through Albania, we spent two nights at the working farm of Florian and his family. They are incredibly friendly and hard working people that have created a little safe haven high up in the mountains of Valbonë. Marlboro Man and his family live next door at a ten-minute walk. Other than that, we were only sharing the mountain with the goats, horses, cows, the most adorable kittens and two dogs (with a bunch of puppies coming soon). The eagles had taken off for cooler places.

 

Speaking about temperatures: although it was 37 degrees Celsius and we were sleeping in a piping hot attic room, I did not miss the airco. Ok I'm lying now :-).
