Komani Lake and Valbona Valley

Time to leave the great Lake Shkodra campground and head off to the Valbona Valley by way of Lake Komani.

When I got to the pier, I was approached by a German speaking Albanian while I was having an espresso (some days are harder than others). Nice chap, not pushy at all and after a quick negotiation they loaded my bike onto the boat.

Bike being loaded on the bus boat

The boat is actually a bus that somebody built a boat around. Quite genious, really.

There are other options, like this guy:

This guy will take you as well

Or this guy:

Two bikes, one boat

They all seem to cost the same amount of money. For convenience you can't beat the bus boat.

Ready to go

Other have been here before :-)

Off we go

Cell phone reception in some areas

Brand new tarmac :-(

I found a place that had nice little cabins for not much money. Perfect for the night.

Next to my cabin was a pretty awesome abandoned hotel in ruins.

Albanian American friendship camp?

I ended up not far from Theth, where I was a couple of days before
