Another very special experience, Mount Athos. The holy land is the third finger of the Greek peninsulas and only accessible for man. Virgin Maria declared this land as sacred, ever since 20 Orthodox monasteries are based here.
One of the beautiful things for me about traveling is that i have the change to experience different cultures and religions. Unless I’m not religious i was very curious about Mount Athos. This land is independent from Greece and to visit it a permit is needed. Also the maximum stay for visitors is four days. Because its such a special place, I decided to visit it with 3 intentions.
1). Get to know more about the Orthodox religion.
2). To process my past about childhood cancer.
3). To take time for self reflection.
It was a very interesting experience in many ways. Check here my experience of staying in the monasteries of Mount Athos.
