Kosovo & Albanian women travel bloggers to follow
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.

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).
