"Waterfall from the skies"
14 out of 15
One stop before our last one, we visited #Lauterbrunnen, the place that inspired #Tolkien for the Middle #Earth saga. I believe this #image encapsulates the beauty of #Switzerland It is a truly #magical place, with #waterfalls flowing from every peak, snowy mountains and endless green #fields the depicted #waterfall is the most iconic and you can see its enormous size relative to the "pixel-sized" people on the bottom right corner of the image.

"Capital of Switzerland"
13 out of 15
Our second stop of the interracial was at #Bern the #swiss #capital A captivating city full of history and amazing colours. In order to capture this #cityscape I woke up at 5 am and make a small hike up a hill where the morning light painted the city in gold. Bern is definitely in my top 5 of European cities.

"Swiss Starlight"
12 out of 15

After resting for only a few days the second leg of my trip began by an amazing interrail around western Switzerland. The first stop was at the iconic village of Albeuve located on a plateau in the peaks north of lake Geneva. I checked the forecast and saw clear skies so I originally planned to go for a small midnight hike to a light-pollution free area to capture the Milky Way. Just as I was getting ready, I opened the room window and realized the Milky Way was clearly visible from there. To my satisfaction I set my tripod pointed it to the skies and captured the image above with the picturesque village of Albeuve in the foreground. Enjoy!

"Fetes de Geneve"
11 out of 15

Originally called "The flower festival" this event takes place for 95 years now. It's aim is to bring the largest possible number of Genevans and tourists by offering entertainment, amusements and shows for the whole public, including an hour long firework show! I was fortunate enough to be in town that day and have a really good seat in front of the lake of Geneva. This shot was my favorite from the whole show.

"Edinburgh Castle"
10 out of 15

Our trip slowly came to an end with the capital of Scotland being our final destination together with @angelozor We stayed there for a total of three days but the first one we just stayed indoors sleeping and appreciating a fine house and a soft bed after camping in the wilderness. Three days later my brother would head back to Athens and I would continue my journey to Switzerland... #scotland #thisisscotland #visitscotland #castle #edinburgh #edinburghcastle #blue #sky #clouds

"Eilean Donan Castle"
9 out of 15

I had seen this castle in a few movies and in many more pictures featuring #scotland but what I didn't know was that it is privately owned. When the couple isn't there it serves as a museum but whenever they choose to visit, it (obviously) shuts down for the public. #themoreyouknow🌈 It is a must see for anyone that visits the surrounding area. Unfortunately we did not have much time since we had to catch the train to Edinburgh.

"Puffin take off"
8 out of 15

Our next day included a boat trip to go check Scottish #wildlife We were fortunate enough to see amazing #birds #seals and of course #puffins which are cousins to penguins. They were quite restless and whenever our boat approached them they flew away instantly and extremely fast which made it a #challenge to #photograph them. I believe this was the most #picturesque image I got that #day. Enjoy!

7 out of 15 "Standing on the edge of the UK"
This part of Isle of Skye was the most northern accessible by foot. It took us 2 hours to walk up to that point but was definitely worth it, by the time we arrived at the edge of the cliff, it was so rainy and misty we couldn't see where the cliff ended. Fortunately moments later the skies cleared and the view was stunning. That was when my brother seized the opportunity and took this picture of me. When I reviewed this image I realized how small I was.

6 out of 15 "Old Man of Storr"
Our second day on the isle of Skye started with a wonderful hike, at the old man of Storr located at the north eastern part of Skye. The #weather was exceptional until we reached the top (where this #photo was taken) and it started raining and howling winds took over. We waited patiently until a #glimpse of #sun peaked through the clouds so I could take this shot. We were rewarded shortly after. #protip the #weather in #Scotland is so unpredictable so a little patience always pays off.

5 out of 15 "Cliffs of Skye"
After 5 days of #travel we finally reached our #destination which was the #picturesque Isle of Skye, located in the north western part of Scotland. The weather was crazy but we were fortunate enough on the first day to enjoy a wonderful sunset along the coast of the island.

4 out of 15 "Glenfinnan Viaduct"
Funny enough this shot wasn't planned at all. My brother and I were just chilling on the top of that hill enjoying the view and trying to get rid of the midges when suddenly we hear a locomotive train sound from the distance. I immediately got my camera out and got this shot. After a long day of hiking, continuous rain and lots of mud I think we were rewarded.

3 out of 15 "Glasgow University Halls"

After a whole nights' journey with the bus from London we finally arrived in #Glasgow. It was our first stop in #Scotland. Despite having twelve hours there, we made the most of our stop and #explored as much as we could. The #highlight, however was the university and it's incredible architecture. Even though the #harrypotter #movies were not filmed there you'll swear you've walked on set while wandering through the campus.

2 out of 15 "London by Night"

In order to reach Scotland we landed in #London, to buy some last minute provisions, rest and enjoy the #wonderful #city at #night. Even though London is known to be #dull and #grey, when the #sun #sets it transforms into a whole different city, becoming #colourful #vibrant and #busy
That is what I wanted to convey through this image. Enjoy!

So this #photo was taken at the #majestic and #wonderful #beach of Skala Eresou. This summer was one of the biggest most #adventurous and fullest I've experienced till now visiting 3 #countries and 15 different cities/towns, but my #journey started from my hometown in #Lesvos and I thought it best to start it off with an #image from there.
So 1 out of 15 "Cantina under the #stars"
Stay tuned for more.

The #Greek #island of #Hydra has one main town, known simply as "Hydra Port" with ~2K residents. It consists of a crescent shaped harbor, around which is centered a strand of restaurants, shops, markets and galleries. Hydra is well known for its ban on all motor vehicles, thus people get around either by foot, horses, mules or donkeys. Water taxis are also available.
