The highest peak of the entire Dodecanese

To hike the Kali Limni has been on my to do-list for the last 2 summers. Kali Limni is the highest peak of the Greek island Karpathos and actually of the entire Dodecanese. I feel like I can not leave this Greek island again without having been on its highest and best view-point. My work on Karpathos for the summer is coming to an end soon. Now I have the time to do the hikes I so desperately wanted to do. Last year Mister Viking an I decided to hike to Vrougounda after the summer. This time we get to see the breathtaking view of Rhodes in the East and Crete in the West from the top of the Kali Limni.

Going to Vrougoúnda was something I had wanted to do all summer. I heard so many stories about this place, that it had gained my curiosity. Perhaps the beach was really as spectacular as I’d heard, but most of all it was the feeling I wanted to get – the feeling of being somewhere far, far away from everything.

Gran Cenote

Before we settled in for the long haul flight to Mexico’s Cancun I Googled about the natural phenomenon that stole my attention a few years ago.

We started planning on trying to find some hippie beach spots to relax at while knowing the cenotes are basically going to be in our backyard. I just had to investigate and learn a bit more about sinkhole diving knowing that we have the cenotes so nearby.
