Thessaly is a wonderland for nature in Greece.
We've been staying in Portaria Pelion above Volos a couple of days (a much needed rest near Athens and Volos - a home for our son now). Quick midday drive to Meteora. Just Roussanou Monastery and a look around. A wonderful trail walk from Kastraki Village and then a drive back to Portaria through the Thessaly Plain; quick stop at the Enipeas-Pinios river confluence near Farkadona (near Keramidi Village).
Some snapshots shared here.
