Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. Moving north, leaving sunburned Mani Peninsula arriving at the fertile valley of the Evrotas River I looked towards the high mountains of Taygetos. That area was home to the famous Spartans. Nowadays Sparta is an unspectacular city. But the mountains were waiting, so I set of to discover them. Many curves later I gave my car a rest and hiked straight up for hours. The tickling scent of pine surrounded me. The trees standing far from each other so I could see a bird of prey which made circles above me. When I left the wood I soon arrived at the corner of a cliff. Pretty strong and chilly wind made me shiver for the first time since I arrived in Greece. The view was breathtaking and made me warm again. The highest peak of Taygetos is 2.407m high and called Hagios Ilias.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. As the sun went low I started another journey. Driving narrow roads not to be found on the map I came across a ridge with that beautiful bay waiting for a drifter. The water clear turquoise, some light clouds hanging on blue sky. Not far away I found a very tiny chapel where fishermen would pray for safe return, leaving icons behind. I knew, my greek time would come to an end, soon.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. Coming from the sea the little road winds up a deep gorge. Sometimes a donkey dreams under an olive tree, sometimes a hawk creates circles in the sky. Then the gorge opens up and a small white building appears high above: the monastery of Elónis. Three old nuns living a simple life on the edge.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. One morning I walked on a mountain ridge with a view onto the sea. I heard some bells and the typical sounds of goats. Cicadas were having their morning workout, from a small harbour below a fishing boat was heading towards the sea. Then I realized some lizards sunbathing on a huge rock and just then realized all the colours I was surrounded by. ONE CLICK. You see.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. Being bee keeper, like Nick of Nafplio means heavy, heavy work. A lot of lifting mostly in very hot weather, because that's when the bees work and produce honey. Dressed in bee keeper's clothes I sweated like crazy, and felt like collapsing soon. Though absolutely fascinated by the art of work both bees and bee keepers do. Not to forget how important bees are to pollinate. Sauna on Peloponnese Peninsula.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. I left my hotel very early in the morning to catch first light. On my way to the southern tip of Mani Peninsula I stopped my car on a ridge above the sea. The wind was blowing strong, pushing seafog up the hillside to where I stood. For minutes the view onto Porto Kagio was clear. The water blue, the rooftops red. Then the seafog came in again, hiding what you can see in my click. I went down to the village sat down on the beach and had my first greek coffee of the day. In the mist.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. For hundreds of years Mani Peninsula was home to hard working people. They tried to cultivate the harsh, dry and often windy land, built there typical Tower Houses, families fought against families in sort of vendetta. They were fishing and some acted as pirates. Today many of the houses can be rent for holiday, some are hotels or tavernas.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. A marvelous evening at Eumelia Organic Farm and Guesthouse. Sitting under an olive tree with a glass of greek wine, tasting some baklava and goat cheese. Listening to the music of the cicadas, watching the stars popping out. During the day relaxing on shady wood covered terraces and letting the time pass by slowly. Possible on Peloponnese Peninsula.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. Papa Jorgos is priest on the most southern tip of Mani Peninsula. He laughs a lot, runs his own hotel and built a chapel at the bay of Marmari. After I took this picture we sat down had some cups of greek coffee and plenty of wonderful cake. God will guide you, he said, at least to the next taverna. Happened on Peloponnese Peninsula.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. To catch the mood of an approaching storm and the typical Tower Houses of Mani Peninsula, I drove little tracks till I found these abandoned ones. The last light peeked behind thick clouds, I took one picture and then thunder and lighting came upon me. Happened on Peloponnese Peninsula.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. I was driving around the bay, looking at a great sunset but found no foreground I liked. I had no will to just take the bay in sunset, too boring I thought. Then I turned onto a small rocky path and saw the yellow broom shining. It was the last picture I took, just perfect in time before it got dark. But I knew immediately that would be the pic I was searching for. Happened on Peloponnese Peninsula.

Let's move on to Greece. One of my favourite countries in Europe. Monemvasia is a small town on Peloponnese peninsula located on a monolith in the sea. In byzantinic times it was a very powerful city with a lot of trade connections all over the Mediterranen.
