Happy International Women’s Day: Here are some Albanian women travel bloggers to follow

March 7, 2019 2 Comments

Last year, in March 2018, I was highlighted by USAID Kosovo as one of the “Women Making History Today” because of this blog and the efforts I’m putting to travel despite all the visa issues and the non-recognition of my Kosovo passport and/or my country. In addition, USAID considered me as someone encouraging more women to travel and also spreading awareness of my home country.

I am honored to have been recognized and I commit to keeping it up for as long as I can breathe.

In the same month, I became part of the USAID’s #WomenConnect Challenge to close the digital gender divide. My role is in using technology to promote traveling for women and Kosovo. Both things very difficult to do: the first because of the many obstacles and societal limitations and the latter due to the lack of recognition from many countries or the long-lasting visa processes a Kosovo citizen has to undergo for a weekend trip in most of the countries in the world.

Have you heard about these Albanian women travel bloggers?

On this International Women’s Day, I want to introduce you to some Albanian women travel bloggers who are doing the same or even better job in traveling the world than I am. (No numbering and the order doesn’t show any ranking of importance. It’s just that someone has to be the first and so on).

Albania is the place

Albania is the place is another blog managed by Romina, or as she calls it a mini guide “to inspire people, push them to explore and make them comprehend the great natural and cultural variety of this wonderful country, still unknown to many.”

BONUS “ALBANIAN” TRAVEL BLOGGERS

There are a few expats who live in Kosovo or Albania and blog about our beautiful countries. One is Anita Hendrieka who moved all the way to Saranda, Albania from New Zealand and writes all about living in Albania as an expat and also beautiful places and her weekly “aventurΓ«s” (adventures). Check her blog out – you may also remember that she was one of the travel bloggers in my series on Travel Bloggers Say about Kosovo.

The other one is Alice Taylor, or better known as The Balkanista, a British-born blogger who moved to Albania and now writes about all things Albania. Check out her posts for everyday life in Albania, important events, and insight of living as an expat.

  • Thank you for the recommendations!

    I am always happy to read more about the Balkans and can’t wait to be back in Europe. This winter, I am in Canada, and honestly I don’t think it was worth the trip and the expenses. I could have visited similar mountains, more accessible, and much more interesting cities in the Balkans – at a lower cost and less harm to the environment.

    With the Balkans, we Europeans have one of the most interesting regions in the world right in our own continent. We should make use of that more often!
