It is now thought that the Roma people migrated to Europe from India about 1,500 years ago.Often, many groups are lumped together into the classification of "Gypsy." The Romani people can include ethnic groups who are spread out all over the world, according to Open Society Foundations.At the top of that list are many of our National Parks.We aren’t talking about sleeping on the ground in a pup tent either, a number of our most famous parks have fantastic lodges.The seven days that I spent there were full of all kinds of surprises ranging from pleasant to disappointing but combined were ultimately what made it such an exciting country to visit.More than “off the path”, Albania is over the hill and sitting in a mountainous valley of its own.

Estimates of the number of Albanians residing abroad are anywhere from 7-10 million, mostly in other Balkan countries (Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece), but there are also a significant amount in Turkey, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the United States. Albania has an interesting history In keeping with the aforementioned information, Albania has a pretty interesting history and you would be doing yourself a disservice by not reading up on a bit of it before you go.
The travelers of Ireland are not Roma, but they are considered Gypsies by many.
