Working in a hostel, you often hear people visiting specific attractions or, perhaps, you might even be the one suggesting some of those places. For us, the problem was that we hadn’t had the chance to go around much in the first few days.
One of the many beautifully sunny days in Shkoder, we managed to get half a day off to bike around the town.
With our bikes, we knew where we wanted to go: Lake Shkodra. It is one of the main attractions of Shkodër and it’s just about 10 minutes away from the hostel by bike, we just had to go there.
We crossed a very unsafe-looking wooden bridge and continued onto a road which lead to the lake.
The road got harder and harder to ride on due to all the pebbles, rocks and dust but, after a short while, the lake started appearing next to us.
In summer, the sun turns even the easiest tasks into challenges but, this time, it was totally worth it.
Half-way to our destination (a small cafe/restaurant), we met a girl who was staying at our hostel and we continued together.
We stayed for the sunset and headed back to the hostel, happily tired.
