Today was a special day at the Historic Museum in Tirana. It was really educational to us and the boys. We got to see how far back Albanians history goes. As far as we know the Illiyians lived in the 4th century BC. Al lot of History of the then “Great Albania“. Here are some pictures of the inside of the museum, and some outside pictures of the Tirana.

Hi everyone, hope you are all good! I have had the nicest day today. I have been to two different places today, in Lushnje and Berat. Berat It has a wealth of beautiful buildings of high architectural and historical interest. Berat is known to Albanians as The City of a Thousand Windows. It was such a beautiful city, I loved it! Such an old city full of history. Lushnje is more like the country side, it`s the best place for agriculture. In Lushnje and Berat is where we have our strawberries and raspberries growing, which is where we went with the kids, to check them out. Huge greenhouses with them. The kids loved it, they ran around in grass fields, saw a bunch of animals, and birds, played with sticks. The weather was just perfect to be outdoor. It was 18 degrees. I couldn`t stop photographing. There was so much to photograph, you could really tell that the Spring is here. The trees had bloomed, the grass was so green, everything was sprouting. We ate pizzas in Berat, we sat outside, it was soo nice. Here are a lot of photos for you guys, I hope you like them, and see what a great experience I had today!

Today my son was of from school so we headed for town. It was a nice mother-son bonding time. We walked I think through the whole Tirana. It was nice, sunny weather with a lot of people outside. The coffee places were over filled as always. Nobody in the world takes coffee time so seriously as the Albanians. They really value social time with friends/girlfriends/boyfriends here. Here are some pictures me and my son took today. Hope you have a wonderful Friday! And a big shout-out to my most wonderful sister-in-law Sahara for it is her birthday today!! 🙂 🙂
Happy B-day Sahara!!
