Continent: South East Europe
Capital City: Athens
Year I Visited: 2018
So much more than just gorgeous beach islands, mainland Greece is a true gem. The mountainous monasteries of Meteora should be a Wonder of the World whilst cool capital Athens has more sights, viewpoints and amazing eateries than you can shake a stick at.

I find it hard to fathom I had absolutely no idea an area as incredible as this even existed until I travelled round south east Europe. A beguiling array of jagged mountains and teetering monasteries makes for an amazing series of hikes.
Young and old, sprawling yet relaxing; Athens is a city you can pass through in a few days or soak up for a week or more. It’s difficult to tire of the ancient ruins, nearby islands and hikes, great shopping, mouth-watering food and numerous parks.
