KASMIL AND FINAL DAYS IN ALBANIA

After riding the toughest ride of the trip and then relaxing oceanside in Sarande, I got invited to KSAMIL ISLAND by four French tourist. They invited me to stay at the French residence, OK, I’m there.

I ride out of town and see some of the same style rugs I saw in the museum in Vlora.

The riding is again virtually car-free, where is everyone? The views are amazing (again)

I never found the French residence, but a women who earlier stopped on her scooter to tell me about her camping place. I rent an apt. For $12 and for the first time on the whole trip

I missed the French residence but I meet Vincet (French) at the campground.

HUGE DOWNHILL TO GREECE

20131107-113149.jpgMADE IT TO THE BORDER.
I intended to take the bus from the border, so I cross the border check only to cross back again to Albania, no bus till morning.
The sun is going down fast, I grab a hotel room at the gas station, actually a very nice room with WiFi.
I´m going to make a separate post for “FINAL THOUGHTS ON ALBANIA” (right now)
Thanks for reading
