Stowing Away I stood between two facing mirrors & almost caught a glimpse of infinity, but my bloody head kept getting in the way

Meteora monasteries

A monastary at Meteora, Greece

A monastary at Meteora, Greece

A 9 hr ferry ride took us to Greece. Greece was fun and we camped everywhere, being the only people in every camping site we went to. The weather is getting colder & there are very few tourists about which is fine by me - you get to see most sites undisturbed.

Went to some monasteries at Meteora which are perched atop small but high & very vertical rock formations. You generally need either very good rock-climbing skills or the use of a winch & lowered basket to get up to them. One of the monastaries was used as evil villans secret hideout in a James bond movie (forget which one now). Anyway, an amazing place. (pics to come soon)

Next stop - Turkey!
