For a holiday, I wanted to go somewhere off the beaten track, somewhere exotic, but not too far away from the UK. What about Albania, a tiny country in the Balkans of about three million inhabitants? Cut off from the rest of the world (apart from North Korea) after the end of WW2, it was ruled by communist Enver Hoxha with an iron grip for 40 years. It is slowly opening up, but it remains the poorest country in Europe. And it has plenty of interesting doors.
Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.
