Our 21 Favourite Photos From Albania

In this, my last post to wrap up our trip to Albania, I asked L and the kiddo to lend me a hand to help inspire you to start planning your own trip to this awesome little country.

I asked them to select seven of their favourite photos that they each took on our trip, and then I added seven photos of my own.

To us these 21 photos represent great memories, beautiful scenery, and one amazing trip.

Albania Trip Summary Post


  • Gosh, what gorgeous photos. I am a big fan of that part of the year and Albania is definitely on my list of places I’d like to visit (eventually). I love that you included photos from your whole family! Great way to get them involved in the blog.

    • Thanks so much Mandy! It was a beautiful country to photograph and I must say we had a hard choice narrowing it down. I love their photos too. Sometimes they get different angles or perspectives, or just take photos of different things than I would think off. I think they liked being featured on the blog too, especially my son. :-)

      Can’t wait to hear what you think of Albania when you get the chance to visit.

    • Thank you Eden! I hope you get a chance to visit there one day and then I’ll be reading about it on your blog. :-)

  • I am so impressed you guys were able to narrow these down! There have been so many beautiful choices throughout your Albania posts that it had to make for some tough decisions :) Lovely way to wrap things up and definite inspiration for adding to the travel list!

    • It wasn’t easy so that’s why I made the guys help me out with that one. :-) Inspiration for others to visit, that’s all I hope for. I just loved Albania that much.
