A road trip of Ancient Greece

While booking my flights back from Israel I noticed that flights via Athens were particularly cheap. I gave my Mum a call and we planned a week long road trip around mainland Greece, starting and ending in Athens, entirely based on what looked pretty on google images. I did most of the driving, allowing my Mum to keep meticulous notes about the driving distances and places we visited.

The sun setting on a street which we only drove down because we were lost trying to find the bridge across the Gulf of Patras

A misty morning on the lake in the town of Ioannina.

The Varlaam Monastery atop a sandstone pedestal in Meteora. 
The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron. 

The three remaining pillars of the Tholos Temple in Ancient Delphi.

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus, which is part of the Acropolis in Athens.

Ranthambore National Park

Possibly my last blog post from Ranthambore (until I go back!) so it's just a collection of photographs that I haven't shared on my blog yet. Although we only spent one week in Ranthambore National Park it was a magical place, that kinda reminded me of the Jungle book, which was topped off by some fantastic time spent with tigers.

The sun shining through colourful Saris at the Ranthambore fort.

Two of the guard sat on the top of a wall, looking as comfortable as monkeys.
