Summary Blog

Greece: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (& the Costs).  This is a great starting blog to read giving you a first-hand account of what Greece is like from our eyes as we travelled around by Motorhome soaking up the culture, history and scenery…

Diros Caves

Go to Caves of Diros they said. It’s un-miss-able!

So we did….

And…

They were right!

Meteora

Meteora is one of those places in Greece that simply takes your breath away.  We were told that we had to visit this place and it did not disappoint.

The road to the area was unexpectedly long and wound through some semi-alpine areas with extensive snow on the ground in late December.

The Ferocity of… 

The Ferocity of Mother Nature.  Bad weather can be the difference between staying in one place for a while or moving on quickly.

No place looks inviting in a howling gale. With rain looming, grey clouds overhead, and a cold wind blowing who wants to get out and explore?

Monemvasia

Monemvasia, is a small town in the municipality of Laconia, and includes the unique Venetian fortress/settlement on the island, which is connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway.  It’s one of the most spectacular places we’ve been to thus far…

Mani In Peloponnese

We passed some very impressive buildings giving an air of prosperity to the region, which may be a little deceptive.  Like many coastal Greek areas, the economy relies heavily on the seasonal tourist industry…

Methoni

The castle of Methoni, built in the early 13th century, is among the largest castles in the Mediterranean and was one of the two “eyes of Venice in the Mediterranean” which were the forts that the Venetians used to control trade and defend their interests in the region.
