Medieval Exploration

After sleeping in and fueling up Greek yogurt and bread, Rob and I hiked to the top of Monemvasia’s plateau to explore the ruins, check out the view, and inevitably take a bunch of jumping photos. We cooled off afterwards with a swim along the rocks and lunch at a cafe on the town square. I highly recommend that everyone who comes to visit us take the weekend ferry to Monemvasia. Such an amazing place! On the return trip to Athens, we made a pitstop for dinner in Nafplio — now a posh port town, but once the capital of the First Hellenic Republic. I’m feeling very thankful for such an amazing weekend full of exploration and relaxation. We’d also love to return to Monemvasia — perhaps next time by ferry. 🙂

  2. I told the hotel owner I’d be sending you and Dad to her! (Pending parental approval, I may also invite myself and tag along.) It was amazing!
