3 Days Spent In Kalambaka
Luckily we were able to hide most of our equipment in an adjacent cave and headed out for the day scrambling with just day sacks. We headed for the cliff top monostry visable from the town. It was a pathed ascent which was a fairly steep and taxing hike. As we neared the first monastry we were able to fully apreciate the enormous effort put in by the greek monks to build these monestries on top of rock pinnicles, unfortunatly the monks had decided to sleep in or something and the place was closed so we decided on an alternative route down which resulted in a mad scramble decent.
We headed down to Kalambaka where we hired a moped each for the day to explore the winded roads that connect the majority of the monostries. We stopped off numerous times to explore and scramble the surrounding area. In the afternoon we paid the 2euro entry fee to go inside of the largest and highest monastry. The remainder of the afternoon was spent exploring mountainside villages we had previously seen from our cave.
Oli: Set off solo for some scrambling/exploring.
Ed: Spent a lazy day writing letters home and doing some general repairs to kit, i also made an amazing dam to catch the rain water for washing faces and dishes. I then wondered into town to send the letter and buy some more food for us both.
