A road trip of Ancient Greece

While booking my flights back from Israel I noticed that flights via Athens were particularly cheap. I gave my Mum a call and we planned a week long road trip around mainland Greece, starting and ending in Athens, entirely based on what looked pretty on google images. I did most of the driving, allowing my Mum to keep meticulous notes about the driving distances and places we visited.

The soft morning light on the harbour at Nafplio

The sun setting on a street which we only drove down because we were lost trying to find the bridge across the Gulf of Patras

A misty morning on the lake in the town of Ioannina.

The Varlaam Monastery atop a sandstone pedestal in Meteora. 
The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron. 

The three remaining pillars of the Tholos Temple in Ancient Delphi.

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus, which is part of the Acropolis in Athens.
