So my break to Florina was an adventurous one and it did not entail just a tour of the city. We went out in the wild countryside on our way to Nymphaio, a picturesque village hidden up in the mountains unlike any other in Greece. I had a stroll at a sanctuary of wild bears and finished off with a wonderful meal overlooking Vegoritida lake.by
I took this photo on one of the many outings to my local haunt, a tiny street-corner cafe. It’s an old house turned coffee shop, or kafeneio. In the proper Greek fashion they serve coffee in the mornings, but come lunch the kitchen opens, offering some of the most delicious traditional dishes like ntolmadakia, tiropitakia, seafood nibbles and grills – you name it – until late into the evening.
