When we stayed in Saranda, Albania a few years ago we lived in an apartment that had amazing views of the Ionian Sea and the island of Corfu, Greece but I also loved to look at the surrounding hillside with it’s golden hue, spotted with silver stone and dark green shrubs and pines. We recently visited again and the hillside is getting covered with new construction as the town becomes busier with tourists, but there are many hillsides along the coast that look similar to this.
