My parents came to visit us for a few days recently. And it seemed a shame not to show my dad the amazing mountains surrounding our house. After a bit of searching we decided to check out an area that I also had yet to discover: the Rindomo Gorge and the amazing feat of engineering that is the Pigadiotiko […]

Like a lion in Zion: the Hidden Canyon

After a good night’s sleep under the shadow of the Watchman, we were excited to set off on our hike… We’d decided to try the intriguing Hidden Canyon hike (btw, this guy’s guides to the Zion trails are amazing, with all the information you could possibly need, and some amazing pictures. I don’t know you Joe, […]

Ovires rockpools

As you may or may not have realised, i sort of developed a huge crush on Papingo during our stay, so you can imagine i was less than happy to wake up on our last day there… However, a hearty breakfast full of local, fresh goodness made getting out of bed significantly easier! Besides, i […]

In the mountains of Epirus (I)

Gamila Rocks

What do you think about when you think about Greece? I guess people think of the sea. It is indeed such a great part of Greece, such a beautiful part of it  – all that blue.  And yet, Greece is so much more than that – and that’s what we set out to discover on […]
