We were slightly nervous traveling by ferry from Bari in Italy to Durres in Albania. We had been in Italy for such a long time that it was interesting but also challenging to go to the next country. Also the difference between Italy and Albania is really big. With Cycle touring Albania we definitely had the feeling that the adventure is really starting.

While looking for the ticket office for the ferry in Bari we met Stefan, a German hitchhiker who would take the same ferry as us. When we arrived at the ticket office we heard in Dutch: “no this can’t be true”. It was the pensioned Dutch couple, Jeanet and John, we had met in Pompeii on the camping. We chatted a bit and then they invited us for a cup of coffee. While we had been in Mola di Bari they had been to Sicily and now they were also crossing into Albania on their way back home.
