Photographs van Greece, spring 2019

In 2019 we had the possibility to leave home for 7 weeks and we wanted to be back before the high season started, so we set out already on 11 May. By car we first drove to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, where we stayed 3 nights and then on to Greece where we explored the islands of Evia, Salamina, Poros and Andros, among others. Again a beautiful trip but this time we took it easier since we had alrready seen so much in Greece. And it was the first time that we used our dashcam, so you can also watch some videos of our trip.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.

16 to 20 May, on our first days in Greece we visit Chalkidiki (Travelogue)
