6 days to the North East Of Greece with Cynthia, most of the time was spend around the Nestos River and at Dadia Forest.

 

We rented a Suzuki Jimny 4x4 and went on every impossible road we could find, this way we reached a lot of great places.

 

Back in those days I made slides, which I made digital now.
