Meteora Thrones adventure
#moondoormonk

Overview

Visiting Meteora from Athens has never been so easy and comfortable. For those who aspire to become monks at some point in their lives, scream ‘For Your Eyes Only’ (from the James Bond film) at the top of their lungs or be a part of the House of Arryn in the Eyrie of Vale of Game of Thrones (make sure you watch out for the Moon Door), Meteora has it all! A train journey through Central Greece takes you to Kalabaka, the region that hosts rock formations created some 60 million years ago. For approximately 3 hours, you have the once in a lifetime chance to go back to the 9th century AD, as monastic life, unaffected by the changing modern times, remains much the same as it was then! Camera, comfy shoes, and an adventurous spirit are all essentials!
