This one is for a friend of mine who lives very close to the sea, in Marathea, near Gytheion, where there are lovely beaches. Some very quiet, and a few a bit more cultivated.
You can also choose for the mountains. Take your backpack and go to Anavriti, for instance. This is a lovely village, close to Sparta, high up in the Tayegetos Mountain Range.
I've been there quite often,with friends, and with members of the Mediterranean Garden Society, who organize lovely excursions in this area. Nature is beautiful over there and you can make excellent walks.
The mountains are very impressive, rather rough. In an area very close to this picture we found a meadow of wild red tulips. I must have somewhere more pictures of the mountains, but it seems that they are living a life of their own on the computer, because I can't find them. So, I'll show them another time!! Sorry.
And as I mentioned a picnic, we fill our beach bag and backpack with healthy sandwiches, nuts, fruit and something to drink. We'll take a plastic cup and a mug rug to go with it.
