Video by Bauke: What to do in Tirana?

Throughout the years I've known and still have many Dutch friends, most of whom I've met and continue to meet in Tirana.

However, none of them have a YouTube channel that I know of, unlike my good friend Bauke.

I love the great job that he is doing posting about daily life in Tirana and around Albania because even this blog was initially started to try and bring that added perspective on this Albanian reality and life. I may have written a couple hundred posts about it, but people love it even more when they can learn and experience my reality via video.

Well, that's why I would like to highlight Bauke's YouTube channel and Website called

He is so enthusiastic and positive and brings in such a positive perspective on daily life.
