Definitely not for the faint of heart, Albania is an option for those who are up for the challenge of a rough lifestyle. It has a reputation for being quite corrupt, but this European nation has tons to offer in the culinary and history departments. Even though living outside of the city center won’t cost you much more than $200 a month in rent, Albania is only for the expats who are willing to toughen up and rough it out. If you’re a New Yorker, you’re probably good to go. You made it here, so you can make it anywhere, right?
