Default I went to two trips

hey guys! I had gone to two trips recently.. and I have some computer problems so I couldn't upload them. Now I am able to do that from another computer
One trip was to city of Drama, it's not so far from Thessaloniki (150km NE) This city has amazing parks and one of them is the Agia Varvara Park, a great spot with fountains, small lakes and waterfalls, tavernas, an outdoor theatre and leisure venues.
This is the small park

I loved these


statues

Then we went to Agia Varvara park, it was amazing!






The trees' roots are in the water

small waterfall


Duckies!

Some weeks later, we went for a guided tour to Meteora. It's a big complex of Orthodox Monasteries. They are built on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly in central Greece. The town built under these big rocks is Kalambaka.
Passing through the city of Kalambaka on the way to Meteora- do you see the rocks?

Going higher

Seeing these rocks made us chill

We visited 2 monasteries- this is Moni Varlaam

Going to the monastery all the way up

Views from the monastery


I wonder how did the monks build these monasteries up there- most of them are from the 11th century


Really liked that



There were many tourists there like us


Then we went to the second monastery, Moni Agiou Stefanou

Lovely monastery

Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos in the monasteries.I saw this sign outside the second one

View from the second monastery- city of Kalambaka

I got this picture when we were leaving

Then we went to city of Kalambaka

The city hall

Then we saw some signs- there was a old byzantine church close to the rocks, so we went to find it

No, it wasn't this church

I saw these flowers while going up

There it is


views from the church

returning to the bus, I saw an african grey in a restaurant he was a sweetheart!

Next stop was city of Trikala, a river passes through the city

It's been a long time since I saw swans!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Wow Despina, what beautiful pictures, buildings and scenery. I never cease to be amazed from your pictures how similar the Greek countryside is to parts of Australia.

VERY Photo Heavy! I have to say that they are STUNNING though! As a Nature Photographer I love these. It shows that there are still beauties in this world to discover. I am happy that you were able to see these amazing sites and capture them. Always take Photos... You can NEVER take too many.

You really got some exquisitely beautiful pics from your latest travels!
The scenery is amazing and it's very interesting how the monasteries were build on the top of the rocks.

In my country especially in the north of Portugal most houses on the small older villages are also made from rock.

Totally AWESOME photos, Despina!

I so love it when you post pictures from your travels
It gives me the opportunity to enjoy "visiting" places I will never see in person.
I enjoyed seeing every one of them, thank you!
