Day 601: MeteoraOctober 8, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
Left early and spent the first couple of hours driving south-west to Kalambaka, location of Meteora, one of Greece's most famous spots. Meteora is an area with tall limestone pinnacles, topped with several large monasteries that have to be seen to be believed. It's actually kind of crazy!
Drove into town, grabbed some lunch and then had a wander around. There's about eight key monasteries to explore, so we drove up into the clifftop areas and had a look around. We visited three separate monasteries which were all very impressive, although none of them really have significant monastic communities still there. Still beautiful though, and really have to be seen to be believed.
We spent most of the afternoon driving around checking out the various monasteries, then headed to our apartment in the late afternoon. It was in a basement but despite the low ceilings it at least had windows! Quite nice all things considered, and we grabbed some supplies before staying in for the night.Read more
