As long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to visit Metora, in Northern Greece. The name means ‘suspended in air’, and you can probably see why. I mean, look at it: In the past few years it’s become easy fodder for the fantasy travel bucket lists that float around on Pinterest collected by wide-eyed […]Read more "Meteora, Greece."
Today is Όχι (or ‘No’) Day in Greece, which marks the beginning of the formal Greek involvement in the Second World War. Across the country there are parades of school children, marching bands, and military outfits. Shops close down, people flock to the squares to drink coffee, and Greek flags fly from almost every balcony […]Read more "Όχι Day 2014 – Athens"
