Όλυμπος

Going to the seaside in Greece this year, I decided on a place near Mount Olympus (Leptokaria was the place). The thought behind this choice was that I really like mountains and besides wanting to go to Olympus, I really liked the idea of lying on the beach or swimming in the warm sea and looking at the huge mountains in the background. And indeed, the view from the little town was pretty impressive and sitting on the terrace in our hotel to the one side we could see the sea and to the other the mountains. I could get used to this view.

As for our trip to the mountains itself, we used one of the travel agencies in Leptokaria to book a day trip (for 10 euro!) to Litochoro – the town right at the feat of Olympus. We only had a couple of hours to spend there, so we didn’t explore that much and unfortunately we didn’t see any Greek gods, but the view was still heavenly (see what I did there).
