The Pelion, Greece

I am really loving my time in Greece. This area I am in along the coast North of Athens and across the sea from the island of Alonissos is very healing country. It is called the Pelion. Today I am writing from Kissos again. I am back near the KaliKalos community I was with earlier, but up a very steep hill staying with a friend, Sylvia who is also a naturopathic doctor, trained and licensed in Germany. There is no Wifi in her home, so I use the KaliKalos wifi when I am in the area.
This is path up to Sylvia’s house:

Yesterday was rain, thunder and lightening storm. Day before yesterday was a beautiful clear day where we laid on the beach in the warm sand, in the shade of the hill behind us. It is so unusual for me to have afternoon shade at the beach after living along the Pacific ocean coast. I really like being able to be out without sunburning. The water was a comfortable temperature for swimming and so very clear. Apparently there is a preserve of some sort off coast, so the sea is exceptionally clean here. My phone camera enhanced the photo colors:

Last week I finished the homeopathy course with Vithoulkas at the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy. I made some great new friends and learned some new things about homeopathy. It is wonderful to see a master at work. Here is a photo of my friend, Whittni with Professor Vithoulkas. He looks pretty good for 84 years old!

This is the entire class:

I took the ferry for 4.5 hours to Volos. The ride was beautiful and the sea is very flat, no real waves and the ferry was huge but not very full. We passed by the island of Skopelos where the church on the hill is from the movie Mama Mia.

It was nice to come back to a known area – where I know my way around and know many of the people. It has been a great place to connect with people of common ideas and interests. I have decided to stay until June 21st when I head to Sofia, Bulgaria. Today I went on a hiking tour where we visited several different villages, walking on mule paths, walking paths, streets, up and down, very little of it flat. I met a new friend, Antoinette, from South France. I am interested in touring some of the areas specific to Mary Magdalene in the South of France. I had just a few days ago committed on my calendar to visiting that area before I go to Paris. I had read a book awhile ago, but wondered how I was going to make a good plan for visiting. Today I felt like meeting Antoinette was an answer to my prayer! She might even travel with me around the area.

Sylvia is planning on spending the winter in India and is encouraging to come for a couple of months. A friend, Ann, is encouraging me to see New Zealand while I am in the travelling mode, she says the North Island is not to be missed. I am still planning on coming back to the states the end of August, but considering whether I might want to extend travelling before I really settle down in Ashland with a house and business again. Travelling seems to be agreeing with me!

  3. Hi Valeria, good to see you’re enjoying new and beautiful places. My ferry crossing on Friday was a wild ride with associated mal de mer. I really needed your ginger pills! Btw GV is 84 not 94. His birthday is in July so soon will be 85. Still looking great for his age and keeping working.
    An Traditional Irish Blessing for you on your travels:

    May the road rise up to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rainfall soft upon your fields,
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
