Getting to Albania

The only international airport in Albania is found in Tirana, but as the Greek island of Corfu is only about 40 min boat ride away, it is quite easy to get to the south of the country from there. The departures from Corfu to Saranda by Ionian Cruises varies depending on season, so make sure you check the time table when you plan your trip.

It is also possible to get there from the other neighbour countries. Read more about how I got from Dubrovnik in Croatia via Montenegro to Albania.

Corfu – Dassia Beach

The last two days I have been at Corfu. Helen left early Saturday Morning, and Elisabeth arrived Friday evening. All the hotels in Corfu old town were fully booked, so we had to go to Dassia Beach, about 30 min by bus.

A few days ago I found out that my friend Carina was going to be a DJ at one of the clubs on the island on Saturday, and lucky for me it was also at Dassia Beach. By coincidence the aunt of Carinas husband happened to be on Corfu at the same time as well, so we were all hanging out during the day It’s a small world!
