The best way to welcome May is with one of the most characteristic flowers symbols of spring, the poppy!
Piraeus, the port of Athens for the past 2500 years and the biggest port in the country. It's 8 km in the Southwest of Athens and has got a population of 163.688, when the whole urban area 448.997. That makes it the fifth largest municipality in Greece and the second largest (after the municipality of Athens) within the Athens urban area.
The last day had many surprises and caused lots of emotions. First of all, the sun that came out and it was shining the whole day it was a really good omen.
We strolled in the narrow streets of the nearby town of Naousa. Naousa is city of 21.000 people in Central Macedonia and its known about its waterfalls or the Park of St. Nikolas for the locals or the people that had visited it.
Volunteering, as we have mentioned many times, is part of the life of the guides, not only as professionals, but as human beings as well that want to assist in their way the people in need.
After two days excursion in Thessaly we took off with lots of memories and drove to the North.
The next destination was Veroia. We reached the town through the scenic drive of the Tempi valley and later passing the Mountain of the Gods Olympus (left) and the Aegean sea on our right side.
