The Challenge of My First 24 Hours in Shkoder

Last year, I spent a bit of time in Montenegro, Bosnia, and Serbia.  While I was in Montenegro, I had thought about going to Albania because I was so close, but I had to return to the UK.  The seed was firmly planted, though.

A Night Time Visit to a Cemetery in Poland

It’s always nice when you find out that you have a day off coming up.  As a recent expat living in Poland, our first Bank Holiday was on 1 November. A colleague told one of my flatmates to visit the local cemetery that night.  It seemed a bit of an odd suggestion because it isn’t …
