Four-star Luxury in a Doberdal Shepherd’s Hut!

461 3-Man sleeping team

On my recent trip to the Peaks of the Balkans, I shared sleeping space in a shepherd’s hut in Doberdal — a grazing community in a grassy cirque nestled in the heart of the Balkan peaks. Native folk prepared excellent grub on a wood stove and smiled at us a lot without talking. Their English was every bit as fluent as our Albanian. The guys pictured above had to squeeze together later to make room for me. Not exactly the most comfortable night ever, but certainly a memorable one. Stay vertical, you all, and keep walkin’.” (Photo by Jay Dement, all rights reserved).

  1. I saw your name on the list today so I am happy now! So glad you’re coming! Can’t wait to hear about your trip!

  2. Hehe, I hope you enjoyed staying with Erald and his four siblings, there is another four living down in the city with the parents. They just left the meadows after snow fell last week!

    1. HELLO ZBULO FRIENDS!!! Loved your great services. Besa is the best as is our pal, Agim (forgive spelling). Would love to say more good things about you in my blog and Facebook. Tell everyone to read my novel, THRU: An Appalachian Trail Love Story, available on Amazon.
