I went to Meteora for a day to see the Monasteries and spend a bit of time in Trikala, a charming city nearby. I can imagine both these places to be full of life during the summer – but winter allowed me to feel more at ease.
If you don’t have the time to check out Trikala – that’s fine, but I wouldn’t miss Meteora at all!

Geographically, Delphi probably isn’t the centre of Greece. Mythologically, it’s said that when Zeus released two eagles to locate the navel, they landed in Delphi.
Apollo (God of Light, Knowledge & Harmony) kept his sanctuary here and was the site of the ancient Oracle (to provide wise & insightful predictions of the future.) It is said some of the first forms of divination occurred in Delphi. In 2002 The New York times released an article that the oracles were actually just kinda high lmao.
Delphi Oracles’ wisdom came back to the three life rules;
Know Thyself . | Everything in Moderation | Harmony in Difference.

Thessaloniki is the second biggest city after Athens, yet it sees little tourism. It’s a tourists paradise – honestly. The amount of signs telling you the history of all the monuments, the sign posts telling you how many minutes to walk somewhere (some even have the amount of calories you’ll burn lmao!) and the amount of things you can see and do even on a budget!
I loved Thessaloniki, so i’m calling it ‘the heart of Greece.’. Delphi may be the centre, but Thessaloniki stole the heart. As our tour guild said; Thessaloniki is what it is hiding, not what it is showing.
The history of Thessaloniki is strong, in 1917 a fire left 70,000 people homeless and destroyed 9,500 houses.  It was a place that people called home, as nobody is without a home as long as Thessaloniki exists. The word you’ll read/hear the most is UNESCO – and you’ll surely see why by reading this, and when you visit.
