Default Mini-trip

Hello guys! Yesterday we went for a day trip to a village, 50 miles away from Thessaloniki, where my father owns a piece of land. We went for some gardening work (I am so tired!) and I took the chance to get some pics!
So here you can see mount Olympus

A closer look to mount Olympus

The sea from the other side and small city of Makrigyalos

This bush is called "Fotinia"

Then I saw this little butterfly

Olive trees and a tall fig tree

Cloudy skies

And I got this pic before leaving. You can see the village and the weather that got worse.

Hope you enjoyed it!

Great pics and what a treat to see the famous Mount Olympus!!
It's always good to go back to our roots, I'm a landowner in training too. The land belongs to my grandmother on my mother's side, but now my parents are the ones who manage it, we have our own cork trees and take the cork out of them for selling purposes. Portugal is in the top when it comes to cork exportation and olives too, Portuguese cork is the best in the world.
One day I will inherit the land and the business, for now I will keep on watching and learning how it's done.

Thanks Ana! This is the famous and mythological mountain and the highest in Greece That's very interesting, you know! I've always wondered where the cork is coming from! And I think you'll do a great job one day.. Working in the fields is a tiring job but the results are very rewarding!
