Like stepping back in time.
We took regular visits to the old shepherd up the hill who still lived in the ‘old way’.

During January we stopped in Elea in the Southern Peloponnese to work at the HelpX farm of Roberto and Barbera. The idea was to see out the worst of the winter Olive picking in exchange for a place to live. We learnt loads, made friends and had a great time.
Finally arrived! now time to chill out..
