Albania and Bulgaria feature in top destinations for 2011
Two Balkan countries, Albania and Bulgaria, appear in CNN's list of "the World's top destinations for 2011". The same two countries features in Lonely Planet's "top 10 countries for 2011". (This is not as much of a coincidence as it might appear - a Lonely Planet editor is among the contributors to the CNN list). I am a little bit sceptical about these annual lists - the format normally requires a completely fresh list each year, which means that pretty much every country in the world is likely to get a mention eventually. Even so, it's nice to see the merits of two Balkan destinations being recognised.
