Kicked out from our hostel

Chill Out Hostel was recommended to me by the owner of my last accommodation, there I could even find a swimming pool if the rumors were true. These are for sure a really rare sight in Albania! The owner happened to be a Swedish traveller Matias, who had recently decided to settled down to run a hostel for a few years. 

Neither of us had spoken Swedish in such a long time that we changed to English after 30 seconds or so. This was probably the first time that I felt like my English was better than my Swedish, which is a bit scary, because Swedish is still supposed to be my other mother tongue...

I spent two calm days in Pogradec before the Albanian drama stormed into the hostel. The previous owners suddenly wanted to buy Matias out and move in for free. This resulted in a two day argument about contracts, money and the investments Matias had made during the spring. It all ended after two days with all of us being kicked out...

The journey now continues towards the Macedonian border earlier that planned, but that doesn't matter since I'm running out of leks anyway!
