Non historic vaccation (part 2)

The day after our trip to Dubrovnic (part 1) me and my boyfriend took another sightseeing trip to the country of Albany.
After pasing the border we our first stop was at an old ruin placed beautifully on top of a hill.IMG_9843

Here we walked around for some time snapping pictures of the view and the stone walls.IMG_9834

A stair down to escape tunnels, should the castel ever be attacked.IMG_9845

Then we headed of to a more “recent” museum.IMG_9873

In which I found my first costume related items on this vaccation. IMG_9864Menwear.

Then we were set free to explore the city. One thing we noticed was the big difference in living standars between the rich and the poor.IMG_9883A great mosque.

That night the beautiful hot weater changed, and lots of dark low hanging clouds came rolling in.IMG_9923Don’t know if you can tell from this picture, but the clouds are well below the mountain lines.

Since it was our last day abroad, we decided to take a long walk, despite the weater, to go and se another tourist place a bout a 8 km away.IMG_9916It was a beautiful place, but we did get totaly drenched from the tropical rain on our way there.

IMG_9912We don’t have olive trees in Sweden so I think this tree looks pretty cool.

(thank you for your patients – next post will once again be focused on costuming , and the HSF)
