Nice layout of your site, it looks really good. Can’t wait to learn more about this forgotten land.
Thank you! Hopefully I’ll make it real interesting.
Nice looking site – There was an article in the newspaper not to long ago on the Albanian Riviera – very nice place – clear water – relatively inexpensive to stay even during the summer.
Thanks Vince! I will check out the sites post my thoughts.
Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m
not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
Hello, thank you for the message. I checked the site and from this end everything is loading up correctly. Did you try it in Firefox? I have it open in both Firefox and Explorer and I can see all the images. I’m sure you already tried clearing your browser? Best Regards, Bianca.
