Kalamata and Sparta

We had a few very unsettled days of weather in Kalamata with torrential downpours in the afternoon so we got cracking early one morning to set off on a drive.

On the advice of a fellow yachtie and Marina di Ragusa winter live-a-board, we decided that whilst  Linea was in Kalamata marina we could do the spectacular drive from there to Sparta.  Apparently, this road twists through limestone gorges and is one of the Top 10 drives in Europe.

It did not disappoint.

Seeing the rugged mountains, verdant vegetation, brightly coloured flowers, birds and views was a great tonic when you live life at sea level with water all around.  (I am NOT complaining!)

See for yourselves…

Oh, and the scents wafting in through the windows….
