Every year for G's birthday, his gift to himself is to be in the mountains, peace and quiet and away from any phone signal! (G has a rule that if the phone rings, it must be important so he always answers it, and only if there is no signal is a good excuse not to answer the phone :))
This year we spent it at Lake Nevropolis, about 180 kms north of Athens.
On the third day, G has arranged for me to try Canyoning! This is my first time but it has also been a while since his last climb. We chanced upon the last Canyoning for the season and it was in Ypati, Greece.
We spent 2 nights there waking up to this breathtaking view! It was a bit too quiet at nights, you literally can not hear anything and sometimes your brain is making you believe you are hearing something!
We walked around the lake in the morning then right after we came back, we started our fire
I was worrying a bit because it's winter (ultra cold for me!) and we are going UP the mountain and be INSIDE the waterfalls but to my surprise, I didn't even feel the cold and I was really having lots of fun!
It was a perfect getaway! Since we arrived from our cycling trip, we were working on different projects in the house. The only way we could stop working is if we are in the mountains and if there is no internet or phone signal :)
