Gorgeous all around

Where is that town with the houses perched on the big rocks??

This visual feast is one of those little gems that gets overlooked...I'm going to sticky it for a bit to let others who visit here less frequently a chance to enjoy it too.

This is the Meteora region of Greece ...... Gorgeous and the "houses" are monasteries. Most if not all do not allow visitors.


Looking forward to the rest of this report.
Fantastic photography

Awesome photographs ... Thanks. I also enjoy your youtube videos. That motorcycle accident in Athens looked like it ended with bad results.

Look forward to the rest of your report
Have fun

I can't imagine the amount of work needed to build the houses over the rocks.

Greece...

Keep Riding...
becareful because the Greek Autodrivers do not always take care about the motorcyclists...we, the Greek motorcyclists, are aware about it and always take our precautions. So please take care for the future...

Peloponese is very beautiful...i don't know your driving route but, if you have time, take a look over the mountains in Peloponese (TAYGETOS mountain)...they are realy beautiful...

Realy very beautiful pictures...
Take Care...
