Greece Lightning

Hello people,

We’re back from here:

Halkidiki , Greece
Halkidiki , Greece

The Greek islands are beautiful , really. We spent a brief four days in the little town of Ierissos or Akanthos as it is also known. Many of you might not know but I was born in Serbia and this little town is some six hours drive away from my home town.

Naturally, in the summer months Ierissos and many parts of Greece turn into mini-Serbias ;  a place for Serbians to visit a foreign land and stay rooted to home at the exact same time.

This little town was also almost entirely destroyed by an earthquake in 1932. What we stayed in was the ‘new’ Ierissos built a little distance away from the original city.

And that’s the end of this Wikipedia fact session.

Here are some more photos:

This particular area was also home to several monasteries dotted around the island. The neighbouring towns sold ' Church clothes' and various paraphernalia  one would use in a monastery. I'm still uncertain who the target audience is for these stores.

I’m still uncertain who the target audience is for these stores. Do monks go here? Is this their equivalent of Top-shop ? H & M ? 

I would definitely recommend coming here if you are looking for an affordable beach holiday , or if you just want to get away… or if you want Church clothes.

Enjoy the rest of your week folks !
