White Christmas In Greece
Not many people realise that Greece gets snow. I mean proper snow. Enough snow to warrant having ski resorts. Most people think sun, sea, sand and ouzo when thinking about holidaying in Greece.
Forget that skiing in the Alps piffle, head for the Peloponnese!
Despite skiing in my younger years, I have never ventured to the ski resorts here. I have heard they are really beautiful places and maybe, one year when funds permit we could venture over for a ski
Just the thought brings out a slight competitiveness in me as my husband was quite a proficient water skier in his younger days, but has never snow skied… Let’s just say as non-competitive as I am, it’s a long-standing itch that needs to be scratched!
My Sunday Photos
Last Sunday was Christmas Eve and the Zakynthos Walking Group headed out for a bit of a festive stroll up to one of the many viewpoints at Kiliomenos. It was cold and the view across to the mainland was surprisingly clear. As you see from the photos it was a white Christmas in Greece for some.

Were you aware that we had ski resorts in Greece? Have you ever skied in Greece?
