Photographs van Greece, summer 2017

For the first time we are going to Greece with our own car, a journey of approximately 2.5 days. But along the way we stop in Belgrade for 2 days to visit the Serbian capital. Then we start in Chalkidiki on the eastern mainland of Greece. From there we travel to the Olympus Mountains and then to the beautiful Pilio region. We want to visit at least one new island on every trip to Greece, and this year we will visit two: Euboea (pronounced Evia) and later Zakynthos when we drive to the west of the country to flee from the heat wave in the east (over 45 degrees) . We meet a number of friends from previous trips and make new friends. It is also the first time that Teije can practice his Greek lessons since he decided to learn the language last year.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.

14 to 16 June, we stay a few days in Paralia Dionisous (Travelogue)
