This morning I took the boat over from the city centre to Ioannina Island. It was actually quite busy which I wasn’t expecting; I can only imagine how busy it would be in the Summer.

The Meteora is the name of a rock formation in central Greece (in the Thessaly region) upon which a complex of monasteries were built.

Tonight is my last night abroad and I am staying back in the area of Germany I came to during my first trip to Germany in 2006 (in the same hotel even); the same place I came to when I first drove to Germany 2 years ago.
