Itinerary Overview

Me and my partner, I both live in the City of London. After months of hard work, we were craving sun, sea and sand and decided to visit Greece. We had been to parts of Greece before, but busier and more touristy parts of the county. This time we wanted something different. Something a little more off the beaten track. Something quieter and more relaxed. We did some research and decided to visit Vari and Meteora.

Vari is a beautiful, quiet location in Greece with amazing beaches and is home to the incredible Lake Vouligemi.

Meteora is a town that is host to an incredible rock formation in Greece. The epic rock houses some beautiful Orthodox Christian temples on the sides and into of the formation. The massive rock makes for a great hike, it can be scaled within a day. 

After so many months without sun and with a lot of cold at home, arriving to this place with so much beauty and good weather makes you think that you never want to leave this place again
