Travels in Northern Greece

While living on the island of Corfu we had crossed over the thin strip of sea one summer to take a tour round the northern part of the mainland of Greece.

From Balkan southern borders to the top of the Thessaly plain. We went from the Corfu Straits to the Bay of the Sacred Mountain in the Aegean on a tour of remote villages, mountainous frontiers and great lakes.
