HOW TO GO TO METEORA

2.10.18




Hello people... I am back from my 3 days  trip to Meteora.

Meteora is a place with one of the biggest natural rocks,  UNESCO HERITAGE from 1988, where 24 monasteries were built many years ago, where didn't exist streets or trucks to bring the materials up to the rocks... everything was transported via nets and  cables from the bottom of the rock until the top... where  the monks were lifted as well in small nets and pass from one rock to the other by cables... well something very impressive was made with just a few resources.

So we left Saturday morning from Paphos Airport and we flew to Thesssaloniki.
From there we rented a car for two days with Simply Rent Car, we opted for this one because we didn't have credit card.

TIP: Most of the rental cars ask for credit cards, so if you don't have one, make sure that you read properly the requirements, it happened to me already to not manage to rent a car because of that.


There are buses and Trains to Meteora, but the car gives you much more flexibility and you can visit another things if you want.
We stop to see this beautiful bridge in Tempi and then we drive to Kalabamka, were we passed the night.

Nowadays just 6 Monasteries still intact and open to be visited. All open at 9:00 and closed at 17:00, but they close at lunch time too... during the weekend are all open.
We just visited one,  the biggest one, because on Sunday it started to rain, has dark and cold and we didn't have umbrellas, thanks god ate least we had the car.
I didn't manage to have many nice photos... because it was impossible with that weather.


 One thing that I found strange, was the wild dogs in Meteora and in the village down, we saw quiet big dogs in the street, well they looked happy some of them, but I got  a bit sad to see them going around looking for food.  So we went to Lidl and bought some food to them.. so if you are going there...PLEASE DO THE SAME.... I think they will appreciate a lot.


We passed Monday in Thessaloniki... was my the second time there... the weather was amazing, so we had a long walk near to the sea and took this photos on the most famous "instagrammable" place.

This is a dress but at the time I wear it as skirt. This dress has many stories behind it AHAHAHA.
I bough it on Na-kd, if you want to see the original dress just click here.
