BikeOdyssey 2022: 16 - 18 of September 2022


All the best wishes! The bike odyssey team visited the second station, beautiful Kastania. There we met the cultural association and the president of the village. They were very positive and excited that the bike odyssey chose Kastania be the final station of this etap. We toured through the woods Morava, a path full of oaks, pines and firs, following the very good path that leads to the second terminal of etap.IMG_5016s.JPG




Our visit to Variani was a pleasant experience for us. Apart from the fact that we met beautiful people, wonderful landscapes , we met genteel Nancy Papaprokopiou . Despite her young age, Nancy decided , after completing her studies , to return to her roots , to the place of her parents . She gave us an interesting tour of the village and she entertained us at the cafe "The School", which is hers. The building was previously the actual village school , however , it was decided to close because there were no children in order to set it in use. So after being renovated began operating as a traditional cafe.
