Greece Votes and Turkey Tomorrow

Well, here we are. Things are going better here, thankfully. I have had a bit of alone time (just a bit) and it has done me well. I currently find myself in Kavala and I will be leaving for Alexandroupoli in about 20-30 minutes. Then, first thing tomorrow, we head to Turkish border --hopefully, making it across the border without any problems.

Starting last Friday I spent 2 nights in one of the famous monasteries at Meteora. (At St. Barbara!) It was a unique and very special opportunity. Orthodox faithful are rarely able to stay in the Meteora monasteries and by the Grace of God, the intercessions of St. Barbara, and dear friend Nektarios Antiniou my roommate, Angeliki, and I were able to spend time with the sweet sweet nuns there.

I promise that I will post my own pictures soon, but in the mean time, here is a general stock photo of St. Barbara.

I have to head to the bus right now, but I promise to check in again soon. Also, more on what I've been watching on YoutTube as well. 
Blessings until next time. 

PS.. for those of you who reached out to me following my last post, thank you. You don't know how much your notes and messages of encouragement meant to me. I am so incredibly grateful!
