Views from rest days trips


Arrived on Kalymnos and set up camp for 5 weeks at evagelia's studios, Ours closest on the end


Checked out the sights of Athens. Visited the acropolis and it's museum. Stayed in Piraeus so was easy to get a boat overnight to Kalymnos.

Elefesina then athens

Spent a couple of nights here before heading to Athens, replaced a fuel line on the far-reaching thanks toyota  :-)


Drove out to the east coast of the Peloponnesian peninsula to see leonidio - soon to be the New Kalymnos according to some locals. Hard fantastic meal at local souvlaki joint while watching olympiakos play. Then headed towards Athens.


Headed to lagada next to catch up with George and the crew from patras. Spent a few days at this crag, great spot and very nice climbing. Also did a few days sight seeing around Sparta.


After a few days in nedousa headed down the coast to kardamyli to check out a sea cliff with a new crag on it. Met the guy George who was doing all the work  fixing the crag up. Made dinner on the top of the cliff and sampled the local spirit.


After messina, spent time climbing near kalamata at nedousa

Meteora to amfissa

After a quick nip into Albania and back headed to meteora for a few days before meeting local guide Nikos who took to his own crag of portes.

Headed to greece

Rain seemed to keep knocking on the door so headed to Greece via brindisi and the ferry. Had an amazing electrical storm at the port


From went west to abruzzo region. Found a nice spot to stay for a few days run by an English couple who had moved out there for a change of lifestyle. Checked out climbing areas - roccamarice, pennapiedamonte and Pennaduomo. Tried the local specialities like rostacini.
