Soakin’ up the Albanian Sun

This last Sunday was one of our first days off here in Albania that had absolutely gorgeous weather! We all decided to take advantage of it and make our way to Librazhd for a Sunday Fun Day. Librazhd is one of the training sites here that has two TEFL groups and one COD group. The rest of us hopped into furgons from our villages and made our way to the little city.

The hike we went on takes a little over two hours to get to the top. I hate to admit that I got a little sunburnt on my shoulders. In my defense, I have been stuck indoors because of the ND winters for the five months before I came here! Not to mention that Fargo was getting over a foot of snow on the same day I was getting my healthy dose of vitamin D. 🙂

The views were breath-taking from the tree we hiked up to. It is crazy to me how the landscape changes in this country. So far, everywhere I have been is beautiful in its own way.

We all had an amazing time and the day off from PST was much needed. I can’t think of a better way we could have spent it!562543_367675076684656_2127557036_n
