Montenegro & Albania

It was a pleasure to be reunited with my good friend Elliot & his lovely wife Mayu last week. I rented a bike in the stunning Virpazar, Montenegro, and cycled across the boarder to a small village in Albania called Theth. There is so much beauty in this wild, back-in-time part of Europe. The Albanian Alps certainly have a majestic feel, and the locals are friendly as ever... One night we were lucky enough to find ourselves being invited for a free-of-charge, impromptu stay in a wedding venue, and found a comfy spot on the stage to rest our tired legs.

Check out Eliiot & Mayu's blog 2islandtravellers.com for frequent updates on their incredible bicycle journey from Cape Town. They are a truly inspirational pair and have a lot to give. Also big thanks to Matthieu for hooking us up in his beautiful house!
