    ... which made the journey so much more pleasant. It also was a direct run which was a bonus as it was not direct on the schedule we had seen previously which meant we got into Athens at 10.30pm.

    Our plan was to grab a cab to Syntagma square about 3km away and then get the airport bus X95 to the Sofitel so we would be nice and close to the airport in the morning for our flight to Santorini. Buses to the airport are €8 each verses a taxi of ...

    ... as temperature was about 6 degrees. Drove down and on to Meteora! What a find, probably not on our list had brother Ross not suggested it.

    ... have taken a vow to devote their lives to living here. They are permitted to go out and visit parents, or shop in the town for provisions for the monastery but for the most part they live their life devoted to God at the nunnery. They devote 8 hours a day to work, 8 hours to prayer, and 8 hours to rest.

    ... up there - they would have had nice views though! In the middle ages oppressed medieval monks started building monasteries high on the strange rock pinnacles, by climbing the sheer face and pulling up the stones... it could take up to 20 years just to haul up the rocks before building commenced.
