Travels in 2012

I was lucky enough to go on some interesting trips last year. One of these was to Mount Athos in Greece, a peninsula on which there are several dozen orthodox Greek Monasteries. You need a special permit to visit, access by boat only, and no women at all are allowed. We stayed in one of the monasteries for several nights. A little like stepping back into the middle ages, and a fascinating experience. Early mornings, ‘though – these guys get up early.
