personal highlights

  1. Albania: has more than 50 castles! (I visited: Krujë, Lezhë and Rozafa)
  2. Lezhë castle: relaxed goats and sheeps at an Illyrian settlement (800 BC)
  3. Persimmon: unknowingly becomes my favorite fruit later on my journeys
  4. Skanderbeg: important Chief of the League of the Albanian people in 1444
  5. Great Outlook: over the city of Lezhë, and all nearby valleys and hills
