Shortly after arriving in Albania I got my first puncture. Whilst fixing it I got invited into a restaurant for a coffee and lots of questions from the entire staff there. We took a few photos and they all wrote down my website then asked “When will the photos be on your website?”, well here they are: (click to enlarge)
Thanks for the coffee guys! Albania is proving to be very friendly. In a couple of days I’ll be crossing into Macedonia.
The puncture was a rather special one. A nail over 3 inches long (that’s over 9000 micrometres) had found it’s way into my rear tyre. My “self-healing” gel filled inner tube didn’t stand a chance.
