This month I was in Greece, with an International School of Tirana, on a hiking tour in Meteora, as part of their Units on human explorations, body and religion. I was very lucky to be part of their group which involved the kids and their parents.
Meteora is an interesting tourist attraction, where history, religion and fascinating landscape coincide in one place. We had with us Mr. Kostas, a local hiking guide and a very patient gentleman. We followed the ancient paths of IPAPANTIS, Connecting West and East Paths, and Great Meteora Varlaam Path, that were created and used many centuries ago. We hiked a distance of 9,5 km at an altitude of 230meters, for about 5 hours.
The area is rich in history of wars and religion, beautiful architecture of monasteries, and it's very challenging for hiking and rock climbing... The reward is a charming panorama that is printed in memory for a long time.
