Late this August we were lucky enough to host the acclaimed British travel writer Andrew Eames, who travelled to Albania to write about our 4×4 tours for the Financial Times newspaper. The trip didn’t quite go according to plan! After two days it began to rain, heavily, and didn’t stop till the moment Andrew’s plane took off from Tirana for London Gatwick (at which point the clouds cleared and we returned to the more usual blazing sunshine…).

Also Drive Albania’s Ed Reeves had to leave the tour on Day Two after destroying a molar on some lamb. The local dentists weren’t able to fix the tooth, so a trip to Tirana (and three visits to a brilliant dentist) was required to ease the agonising pain.

Apart from that everything went swimmingly, though for some reason Andrew was constantly surprised that Albania wasn’t Croatia.

You can read Andrew’s story at the Financial Times website (remarkably there’s no paywall).
