hello all! i live in new york state and have a few friends who are from albania. a couple of them are going back there for a month or so this summer, and i have the option of joining them. one website called albania "the best kept secret in europe", as it is relatively untouched by tourism, etc.. has anyone been here? i would really appreciate any feedback. thanks guys!

I saw a very little bit of Albania during the Kosovo oreal...I was right on the border, and passed through part of Albania. The parts a saw were quite beautiful, but my experience there is limited as I was working with refugees in camps.

I haven't been there, but I've read a few travel articles about it. I would 100% recommend going there with your friends. You will not find a better way to see a country than with some natives. Plus, they'll keep you safe, away from any scammers and show you all the cool stuff that others may not know about...

Go for it! I only wish I could go along...
