Kosovo anniversary and the beginnings of a journey

The 17th February marked the first year anniversary of Kosovan
independence. This year also see the 10th anniversary of the NATO
campaign against Serbia.
For Vanessa and myself, this was the beginning of our long
journey into the Balkans and beyond. I can still remember
the day we arrived in Albania in our car and took the tortuously
slow, potholed drive to Kukes in northern Albania, the entry
point for the Kosovan Albanians fleeing Kosova. Within 30 minutes
of leaving the ferry, the suspension had gone, 20 minutes later,
one of the many makeshift garages had improvised a repair and we
were up and running. From that moment on we were sold on the region.
Work can be seen here, here and here
