Photographs van Greece, summer 2016

For the third year in a row we visit Greece, which has surely stolen our hearts. This time we fly to Thessaloniki and we explore the east side of the mainland to the Turkish and Bulgarian border. Teije is so enthusiastic that he decides during this holiday to learn Greek. The first two weeks we travel, see and do a lot, the last 10 days we really have a holiday with mainly visits to the beach and taverns. We are especially surprised by the beautiful island of Thassos, which lies just off the coast.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
