We rented a motobike in Paralia and climbed the big Olymp Mountain, we wanted to visit the gods of olymp, but they weren't at home.:D

Anyway, it was a great trip and got a very special feeling if you think about it. One day you are sitting in the office trying to fix never ending errors and the next day you are hiking the home of the Greek gods with a motorbike. Unbelievable, right?
