Greek Experiences

Athens Central Market

During my second trip to Greece late last year, I went to the north to visit the mountainous parts and the monasteries. For some of the time, we were lucky with the weather while on other days it was rainy and actually quite chilly. But when the country is Greece and everything is new, it doesn't really matter what the weather is like.

Kastraki - Monastery

The highlight of this part of the trip was the amazing monasteries of Meteora. I couldn't visit all of them mostly due to the fact that they keep differing hours and many of the ones we stopped at were closed. But being on the top of them, looking over the landscape, I felt so great - like I was on top of the world. Beautiful!!! I would recommend this place in greece for anyone travelling there.

Kastraki

The food and wine in the north of Greece was also a highlight. I love to try all different kinds of wine and food as do most people when they travel. I remember we went to have dinner at a local restaurant and the owner was quite a character, singing and dancing traditional music with his other local customers. That was so nice to be there and enjoy the atmosphere. They were so friendly to us and also served delicious local specialties.

Kastraki

He was actually quite drunk and his wife seemed to be rolling her eyes as he danced around singing and taking orders. We ate the longest sausage I've ever seen, along with fantastic lamb and pork chops, rich and delicious dips and bread and the usual Greek salad, which I love.

Volos - Ouzo

This night we actually were drinking ouzo and raki instead of wine. It was a really fun two nights in the monastery village of Kastraki.
