How We Began
Expats in Albania was established in 2013 by founder Denisa Kaca Bradley. What once started out as a Facebook Group for expats going to Albania is now a thriving online platform.
Bradley, a native of Tirana was part of the first group to leave communist Albania in the summer of 1990. After leaving Albania, she lived in Italy for 4 years and then migrated to Canada where she lived for 18 years and also became a Canadian Citizen.
Having lived abroad, Bradley recognized during her own expat journey the need for community and connection whilst traveling. Between 2014-2018 the increase of foreign citizens coming into Albania created new opportunities for the locals; thus placing Albania on the map as a European Destination Country.
“This is what brought about the idea and the need to open “Expats in Albania” Facebook group in June, the summer of 2014. Having created the Facebook group back then, Denisa foresaw the need expats would have when traveling to Albania; especially the fact that it’s a developing country. Just in most recent years, Albania has undergone intense modernization over the last decade. As the country emancipates, travelers are more in demand for such a platform like the one Denisa has created.”
