(Greek: Μετέωρα, pronounced [mɛˈtɛoɾɐ], lit. "middle of the sky", "suspended in the air" or "in the heavens above"
Only a 6 hour train ride from cooler Athens, Meteora was a comfortable 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky.
There are six of monasteries located in Meteora that remain today. Of these six, four were inhabited by men, and two by women. Each monastery has fewer than 10 inhabitants. The monasteries are now tourist attractions.
One of the most fulfilling and adventurous weekends of my entire life.
Here's the last shot I got for the first day. The sunset quicker than our minds were thinking. This short hike being a pre-requisite for the 10 hour hike and sites on the next day.
