Absolute Albania and EXC touring

I’m back home. The end of the Greek trail was very nice, but Albania was truly spectacular. The riding was absolutely fantastic, but pretty tight and generally energy consuming, so I ended up spending more time there than intended. I was pretty worn out when I reached the Montenegrin border, and knew that the mountains would soon shrink into hills and eventually flatten out. To be honest I had no interest in riding hills or flat ground after the epic Albanian high mountain trails, so I decided to head home, with a stop in Villach to catch up with friends and do the final service. I rode the 920 km from Villach to Berlin in one go, and in unusually good weather.
