In autumn last year, with pandemic travel restrictions finally easing, I, like many, was chomping at the bit to jump on a plane and explore pastures new. Wherever my travels take me, I always go camera in hand. Although, I should stress that my travels are just that, trips – never designated "photography holidays".
I'm always looking to balance adventure with cost and this is best achieved through careful choice of destination. I knew I needed a bit of beach time but ideally wanted to compliment this with some hiking and photography along with a good dose of city culture. All while watching the wallet. Albania ticked all the boxes.
