This place is fantastic. - Aug 2, 2015
I have loved our time here, and hope to make it back someday! This is a fantastic post for small children, especially at the Ridge. - Aug 12, 2014
While there is some traffic, it's really not bad at all, especially compared to some of the other countries you may be coming from. Our commissary is getting more and more organized, so runs to the commissary in Kosovo are getting better items stocked up like meats and cheeses. This is a great post if you have young kids! - Dec 27, 2012
The Albanians are incredibly friendly people. Progress is being made here and eventually Albania will achieve 1st world status. Traffic is a problem as there doesn't seem to be much in the way of rules of the road. It is not uncommon to see drivers running red lights, making illegal turns, making 2 and 3 lanes on an already two lane road, or double parking. My advice is to be open to the experience. Also, take the ferry to Bari, Italy to buy the American items you miss at NSA Naples. Also, the base is like little America and can really help with your morale. - Mar 31, 2008
