VLORA TO SARANDA (Part II)

I didn´t wanr to leave my little cabin on the mountain, but I must keep moving

20131027-131211.jpgI HAD TO TAKE THIS FAREWELL PHOTO
I´m at the top and it´s all down hill (walking). I wonder if disk brakes would work in these hills?

20131027-132150.jpgSOME OF THE BEST VIEWS ARE OCCUPIED WITH THESE MEMORIALS

20131027-132806.jpgI TOOK LOTS OF PHOTOS ALONG HERE, IT WAS STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL.

20131027-134212.jpgTHE VIEWS ARE AMAZING
The traffic has dropped to nothing, sometimes it´s twenty minutes between cars and the road is in nearly perfect condition. The temperature is 75f, 25c, perfect biking weather.

20131027-135240.jpgI LAND AT DHERMI BEACH
There is suppose to be the ECO-HOSTEL here? I can’t find it. So I ask someone and she shows me a beachside cottage for $15 a night.

20131027-140523.jpgI STAY THREE DAYS AND GO SWIMMING EVERYDAY, I DON’T WANT TO LEAVE
I could only find WIFI at the HOTEL SPLENDOR I sat there for 6 hours working on a blogpost.

20131027-191734.jpgSO I ORDERED THIS SALAD WITH GRILLED CALAMARI TO HELP RELIEVE MY GUILT FOR SITTING THERE ALL DAY.

20131027-192507.jpgTHE HOTEL SPLENDOR WAS PRETTY AMAZING: POOL, HOT TUB, SAUNA, WORKOUT ROOMS, AND MASSAGES AVAILABLE.
Traveling in the off season is not only super cheap but,

YOU GET A NICE PRIVATE BEACH RIGHT OUT YOUR DOOR

20131027-193750.jpgTHIS IS THE BEACH DOWNTOWN DHERMI TAKEN FROM A LOCAL RESTAURANT.

20131027-194022.jpgYES,THIS IS MY MAN CAVE!

20131027-194121.jpgYEP, ANOTHER AWESOME SUNSET
I shopped at the “local” store. I think I was their best customer? Yogurt only comes plain, the white feta cheese and sausage were cut what you need, olives were bulk, only apples, potatoes and onions for produce. In America there are too many choices, I actually enjoyed the simplicity of not so many choices. I liked not having to make a choice, this is it, “take it or starve”

20131027-195422.jpgTHIS IS A PICTURE FROM THE HELP YOURSELF COOLER. (that’s the cheese bin on the right)
It was super steep riding down from the main road to the beach. I knew the walk up wpuld be hell. I asked a couple people for a ride up in their truck, but no one was going all the way up, I walked (good boy)
I´m going to make a part III, there´s too much for one blogpost.
REMEMBER T WERE NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER GO SEE THE WORLD SO YOU CAN SHARE IT WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD!
THERE ARE MORE SPECTACULAR PHOTOS OF THE ALBANIAN COAST HERE

    I like the take it or starve comment Jeff. I agree, sometimes it is nice to not have to make a decision on something specific. When I had a restaurant I thought it was important to have a wide variety of menu items but now I believe it is better to only offer a few outstanding dishes and do what we do best. Writing to you from Anthem, AZ as I sub for a French teacher who is out. I want to find your France pictures so I can show then to the class as I will be here all week. Greece looks spectacular, especially in the offseason. Keep on ridin’ Jeff. Try Skypin’ again soon. Love you and be careful. Mark
