“Dear Ones -
I've just spent four days in the most beautiful place I've ever seen on earth — Zagorohoria, Greece. If ever you have the opportunity to visit Zagorohoria, do try to come to this place. You will never regret it. This is not a version of Greece that you have ever seen, or ever dreamed of. This is a place of deep and ancient magic.
Excuse my gushing, but I am basically now the official spokesperson for Zagorohoria! Someday, I must come back here. Till then — ONWARD to Athens, and beyond!
