Exploring everyday life

Visiting Volos and Portaria in Pilion, Greece

Leave a comment

Right at the moment when the capital control took place in Greece, we decided to visit the city of Volos and take a walk on its lovely street by the marina, which is full of cafes.

Boats are parked by the marina and the street is packed with cafes!

The weather was not the best that morning but changed later, however it gave me this nice-grey-blue colours in the picture, the Greek blue!

Back to our hotel, the interior is that of a mountain resort. We stayed in Portaria, which is a village in Pilion up on the mountains. We had the opportunity to attend a wedding there (photos later), where the landcape was idyllic for a wedding.

Greece is mostly known for its islands, however Greece has all kinds of landscapes, therefore you can enjoy summer and winter holidays too. Islands are more popular in the summer season, but the mountainous areas have nothing to be jealous for, and offer just as good opportunities for the travellers. You just have to look for them! My personal next destinations are Meteora (monasteries built on extremely inaccessible, steep and remote mountains), very unique landscape and human effort to stay protected! Search for a drone video in youtube and you will see!
