Scenes From Our Recent Trip to Albania


Michael and I just returned from Albania, where we spent two weeks visiting family and touring the southern half of the country. We keep a separate blog dedicated to our Albanian trips, where we’ll soon describe our daily activities in greater depth.

For his birthday, Michael bought himself a Gigapan robot and has become obsessed with it. What is the Gigapan?

The GigaPan Epic and Epic 100 make it easy to capture incredibly detailed images and works seamlessly with the GigaPan Stitcher and The Epic allows your camera to take tens, hundreds or even thousands of photos. These images are combined into a single gigapixel panorama by the GigaPan Stitcher. You can then view, share and explore the incredible detail of your panoramas at

Here are some of the panoramas we composed during the trip. Click the images to access the full resolution shots (some as big as 5,000 megabytes).

  1. Your images are absolutely stunning. Albania is a place I’ve always wanted to see. I can’t wait to check out your travel blog when I have more time.

  2. Kejda, your Albania trip blog is absolutely fantastic! We(me and my girlfriend, Jennifer.)sat in bed last night sharing my laptop and enjoying your words and images of Albania. We also learned so much and we thank you for sharing your trip.

    1. That’s great to hear! And if you and Jennifer are by chance contemplating a vacation in Europe, keep in mind that Albania is one of the cheapest and most pristine destinations. Full access to ancient ruins, beaches like Greece’s, great food, and an unbeatable value. I’d of course help you make arrangements with locals if you actually went… just for an FYI.

      1. You’re so sweet! We may take you up on that someday but it will have to wait until after the wedding next year and the honeymoon.
        Jennifer has never been out of the country and I promised to show her the world. I’ve been so many places and want her to experience different cultures. She’s from Miami(Cuban-American) and a bit sheltered.
        The only times she traveled outside of Florida has been work training trips like to Quantico in Virginia.

        Thank you for replying and for your kind offer.

  3. Stunning pictures
    Thank you for letting us see these incredible pictures. You are the best ambassador Albania can have
