Originally, we were only planning to visit one of the monasteries, but after yesterday's experience and witnessing the beauty of the area, Scott and Alexia decided to visit one more monastery in the morning. The kids and Yiayia Stella took the opportunity to sleep in and relax, while Paul took Alexia and Scott to the largest monastery, Meghali …

Today we started at by meeting our guide Penny at the Delphi Archeological Museum. She continued to amaze us with knowledge of the site and making the history come to life and be relevant for all ages. It was especially exciting to meet Penny as during our drive to Delphi, Paul played …
Yesterday morning I realized that I did not have my adapter for electrical power here in Greece and my computer was running low on battery power. I realized that between recharging my computer and camera batteries, I had left it in the socket at the hotel in Olympia. Drat! At the front desk I asked if they had one I could borrow which they did, but …
... a little blob of tomato sauce, then they bought out salad, chicken and veges and watermelon, which I felt wasteful not eating, luckily I was at a table of boys and they cleaned it up for me. We went for a little walk around the hotel at the sun was going down and found these two little buildings which I think they much use as chapels and they lit up while we were there which was really pretty. Everyone hung out outside for a bit since it had cooled down and we went to bed at about ...
... the big town to find a side-street tavern that was showing the game on five huge flat screen TV's. Sadly, Greece lost 3-0 and we were disappointed that we never got to see the assembled crowd (nearly all men) have a chance to celebrate a Greek goal but were glad that we made the effort to go into Kalabaka to see the game. We returned to Kastraki in time for a superb dinner at our hotel during twilight and went to bed after an exhausting but thrilling day.

TravelPod Member ReviewsDellas Boutique Hotel Kalambaka
Our stay at Dellas was splendid. It was far and away the nicest hotel we stayed in during our nine days in Greece. The rooms are sumptuously appointed with quality linens and furniture, and each room has a large balcony where one can spend her/his time gazing at the incredible Meteora landscape (though not every room has a view of the mountains/karsts). The wifi in the hotel seemed strong and steady and there was plenty of parking in front of the building.
The staff was, without a doubt, exceptional. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that each and every guest felt welcome and valued. Each member was a wealth of information on the area; I am confident our experiences in the area were enhanced by the extra insider bits and pieces they shared with us. Their additional effort was even felt in the decadent breakfast that was laid out with care and happily attended to every morning.
Dellas is located right on the border of Kastraki and Kalambakka, so is quite convenient as both are walkable from it. There are a few restaurants very close to the hotel, and there is also a nice walking path to the old town of Kastraki, making it possible to avoid walking on the busy highway.
