Greece

This travel took place in jun 2003!

I went there with an agency, with a friend !

[No need of passeport in European Union , when you live there : an identity card is enouth !]

Err, is it in the right way ^^ ? May be not ...

What a nice view ! If you don't feel dizzy, of course ...

 

... moreover, some of this monasteries are still in activity !

 

Evia island : not bad, but too industrialised !

Quite impressive, despite scaffoldings ...
