After reaching the top of mount Olymp its interesting to see the rough landscape around high above sea level. After visiting Elassona I went on my own to the next goal: the monasteries of Meteora,
where I should join the group with long distance walkers again. In the harsh landscape of the rocks of Meteora Greek Monks searched for a hide against the Turks…. with success. I visited the cloister of saint Nicholas there. But entering such a cloister one should one thing to keep bearing in mind: You ar entering awholy ground.
The last day before our trip ended and several longdistance walkers went back to Holland we had for the last time dinner in a typical Greek restaurant. Waiting for the train from Kslabaka to Larissa and futher to Dion.
Via Kalabaka and Larissa I went back to Dion.
In Dion I have visited the excavations and the exhibition of the remnants of the Roman Bath
and the Greek athletic campgrounds (the Stadium). On the day I went from Dion back to Thessaloníki the first snow was fallen on the top of Mount Olymp. see picture. This page updated November 9, 2017
