In early August 2016, I decided to try an adventure, given the fact that I was forced to take my 7 day vacation. I set up meeting with two friends in Corfu in northwestern Greece, but I wanted to get there with (almost) nothing planned. No transport or accommodation. I left home with just a backpack, a tent and a bank card. And two destinations I intended to reach: Musala peak in Bulgaria (the highest peak in the Balkans, almost 3,000m) and Meteora monasteries in Greece. During my 5 days trip, I kept a sort of diary and I decided to publish it here. If you are interested/curious to know how my 5 days experience was, I publish the impressions as I wrote them back then (with minor modifications), as if I were there.
