Bonnie in Zurich

Odyssey of an Albanian Dog

Bonnie in Zurich

From Milan, Bonnie took the train to Zurich, Switzerland where she stayed in a very expensive hotel room with wall-to-wall carpeting that she couldn’t get enough of. She even shunned her pillow in favor of a sleepy sprawl on the carpet.

We explored Zurich on a sleepy, Sunday afternoon, looking into the windows of darkened shops, and sniffing at the food in restaurants too expensive for us. In the end we got some nice photographs and a good night’s sleep.

  1. Hello

    Your dog us lovely. I just moved to Tirana and I have been shocked at all of the dog’s roaming the streets.

    Could you tell me more specifically about the location of the Gabis. I’m in need of some things I think I could get there. I would greatly appreciate the help.


    1. Hi Karen, I hope you love Tirana! I miss it every day. The strays in Tirana are often lovely and it is a great place for dog lovers to adopt a dog.

      There several Gabi’s. The easiest one to find is at a location called “the Train Station” (where the train station used to be) – if you follow The Boulevard northward (away from the University) to the point where it ends (it kind of T’s) you will see some veggie vendors along an alleyway – if you continue (northward) into the alley you get into the Gabi proper. That Gabi is quite good, even though it is not very large. Some friends of mine found a very good trekking backpack there.

      The bigger Gabi (I think it’s called Beksat) is much harder to find – it is over on a street that google maps calls “Rruga Kongresi i Manastirit” behind QSUT. I think the Linze bus – one of the buses that goes out to the Dajti Express – passes by it on the way out. Here is a link to a map that kind of shows where it is:

      Let me know how the shopping goes!
