Cannot believe that I have walked 300 kilometers in the last eleven days. What an intense journey this has been so far. I set out on my Camino with the idea to find time to mediate, read and blog everyday and yet there has been no time to do so as I have been so busy walking. I have come to realise that walking 25 to 30 kilometers a day actually takes time.
The Greek island of Skopelos is one of several islands that make up the Northern Sporades island group. As one of the greener islands with very dramatic cliffs, the island is a popular wedding destination. After spending an entire week on the island in 2015, here are my top five things to do in Skopelos.
Last year I decided to plan a two month solo trip in 2017 for renewed inspiration and perspective. Little did I know that my year would start off with the biggest challenge I have ever faced. In early January my father was diagnosed with Mutiple Myeloma and his condition deteriorated so quickly that he ultimately lost his battle on the 7th of February. We were still struggling to come to terms with the news of his illness when we were suddenly hit with the shock of his passing. Even with the news of him being sick, the idea of him passing so soon never crossed our minds.
I have decided to take a leap of faith in 2017 by taking two months off work to travel and tick some of the many things off my bucket list. For the last year I have had this strong desire to go on an adventure; one where I will be thrown into the deep-end and forced to grow. I have been staring at the quote on my wall for too long. It is time now to go and live it.
In 2012 I had the amazing opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. It is said that 600 million cubic liters of water hit the ground every minute on the Victoria Falls. The size of this massive waterfall is something one can only really understand when you stand at the edge of the falls feeling the water spray on your face.
