Skender's parents were placed in the Durres beach area in 1954. The proximity to the sea made Balani family welcome many families from Tirana who spent the weekend at the beautiful beach of Durres. In the early 1990s, the first tourists from Italy were welcomed at Balani family home. In 1994, the family emigrated to Greece until 2001. In 2001 they decided to return to Durres with the intention to start working in tourism.
