Hello, my name is Xheni (pronounced Jenny) and I am a native Albanian who loves travel! I have explored the Balkans and some countries in Europe, but the more I travel to other countries the more I love my country.
I grew up in Tirana and I have always lived in Albania. I don't want to leave, because there is so much that I love about my country: the superb climate, the tranquillity, the wild nature, the people… Here, I can find at all, the mountains, the sea, the river, the fields, the lakes, etc. I love that in Albania, a traveller always has the opportunity to interact with the locals and discover the life of local people.
I have several hobbies and passions. The first is reading books, I’ve traveled everywhere thanks to books! The second is traveling because I love learning about different cultures. The third is swimming because I am totally in love with the Albanian Sea and Riviera. And the last one is exploring nature, because there is nothing like the Albanian Alps.
I work as a tour operator and an official translator. For years now, I have been creating and preparing custom made trips for travelers interested in Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Greece. Tourism, similarly to translation, is a bridge connecting people with landscapes, nature, culture and gastronomy. I see it as a tool for people to be able to discover the vivid colors of cities, the noises of youth and the uniqueness of all the people around the globe as if I were in the process of translating a book full of stories and characters.

Xheni's best travel experience
I was so impressed on my first trip to Strasbourg, France. It was especially thrilling because it was the first time I went abroad. There, I visited the Notre Dame Cathedral, the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and the first-ever astronomical clock. I also attended my first training in Europe. Strasbourg remains to me today, after many other places I have visited, one of the most beautiful cities in the world and the city I will always have nostalgia for. Nothing will replace this experience, my trip to the "capital of diplomacy" in Europe.
