Wandering around Tirana, Albania.
Only spent about 3 hours in Tirana on bus tour a couple of years ago. Couldn't get over how friendly and sociable the locals were. Some great little (& cheap) restaurants/cafes a few minutes walk from the bus station.

England to Australia landed this day precisely 100 years ago
