Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 3 – Athens to Kalabaka⁩

Road Tripping Greece

After a few lazy days in Athens, it was time to hit the road. The car is old and the seats really shitty. There was no music only the radio – and no way to connect the iPhone. And even if – Mitsos has one of the worst tastes in music there is. So that part of the trip was horrible. The good part of the trip: Landscape – lots of it out there and we had blue sky for almost all the trip! On top of that, it was off-season so no tourists and since we took the small back roads not a lot of traffic. Great!

Italy declared war to Greece after its denial to let Italian troops pass the land. One of the greatest battles was from 9th to the 26th of March 1941 and it was for the “Hill 731” located 20 Kilometres north of Kleisoura at Tepeleni Albania.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
