Gjinar to Peshkopi, Albania

Today added to our memorable adventures. The direct route that Google proposed said that it would take 3 hours and 49 minutes to go 80 miles from Gjinar where we were last night to Peshkopi. The alternate route which required you to go back to through Tirana was 3 hours 48 minutes to go 102 miles. We should have realized there might be a good reason for the big difference.

We took the direct route and ended up having to drive on 60 miles of very bad dirt roads. The trip took us six hours. We saw many interesting things and it was a beautiful day. So other than it being a very tiring and bone rattling day everything turned out fine.
