Yesterday we drove out of Macedonia and through Albania, which is a strange plac…

Yesterday we drove out of Macedonia and through Albania, which is a strange place with amazing countryside, maybe it's somewhat sinister feel is tinted by having to bribe the border official to cut Lemonades full cavity search short (or in his words, buy us a coffee ๐Ÿ˜‚). I told him we didn't have any money and he said how can you drive to Montenegro with no money? He had a point but somehow we did ๐Ÿ˜Š. But he accepted some left over Lei we had lying around.

We stopped for a coffee (using some euro change we found in a box) and met a French Canadian couple cycling through Europe, the guy said the word immigrants a lot, like "I'm going there to help the immigrants". Or "I was there helping the immigrants". It made me laugh but only when we left and he couldn't see because he seemed to take things very seriously…

Albania is a beautiful country though with some amazing landscapes and an unusual amount of car washes, we played spot the car wash and I won 10 points to 0.5, Calina said it was because she wasn't playing but I think it is because I am much better at the game.

There are also cops everywhere handing out fines and never used pillboxes dotted across the country from some zany President they had wasting lots of money on war stuff, funny that…

Then in the evening we crossed the border and watched a beautiful sunset while driving along the coast to our Airbnb apartment in Budva. Now time to find somewhere to finish building Lemonade, after coffee!
