inspire_beyondborders A beautiful 12 mile hike through the #samariagorge all alone with nature and completely unguided. the hike started at an altitude of 1250m or 4101 ft. the gorge is rich with many endemic flowers & herbs with crystal clear spring water flowing from the mountains which i refilled my water bottle with many times. the most delicious water i’ve ever tasted, straight from the source #ecoliving as i passed through forests of ancient cypresses and pines and descend between vertical cliffs i reached this very narrow passage known as the “iron gates”. suddenly nestled between two mountains i look around and find this incredible natural beauty surrounding me. i was at a place where i felt so much energy just flowing into me. i stopped and took a few #yoga breaths and just smiled. with my #travelbuddy @nikki_travels_well #travelblogger #wanderlust #picoftheday #greece #photography #yogisofinstagram #travel #traveler #seetheworld #globetrotter #travelbug #naturelover #adventure #vegantravel #inspiration #bepresent #explore #livelifetothefullest #yogalife

loveliness_around_us The samarii gorge has been known to people since time immemorial. even the ancient authors in their works admiringly described all the unusual, beautiful and very rare fauna of this area.and they used these lands for settlements or building temples. thanks to the excavations, numerous ruins of temples were discovered, which were built in honor of the ancient greek gods, such as artemis and apollo. in addition, the gorge was impregnable for enemies attacking and served as a safe hiding place. once upon a time there was a small village called samaria here - a derivative of the "holy mary" - osia maria - sa maria. this was the name of the local church.the village gained fame during the turkish yoke, its heroic confrontation with the turks - they could not master the territory. in 1962, it was decided to grant the national park status as a gorge to protect an unusual animal and plant life, samaria entered into its structure and gave the name to the gorge. you can read another post here: #loveliness_aroun_us_samaria #samaria #gorge #samariagorge #nationalpark #crete #visitcrete #greece #loveliness_aroun_us_samaria

nicoleseacraft ♡t i n y p l a n e t s♡ sea treasures lovingly harvested from sea-foam to home-sweet-home. these spirited stones take me back to hiking crete's sacred samaria gorge down to the ever-so smooth stones & wondrously welcoming waters of the libyan sea. these make perfect palm stones for the little ones. we also implement them for soothing tuck-in rituals... "seastone massage anyone?" the answer is always a resounding yes!! 🏞 🌊 #seastones #seafoam #homesweethome #creteisland #samariagorge #sacredplaces #thalassa #vitaminsea #ebbandflow #bethesea #geology #youaremyrock #wildswimming #adventurebeckons #gorgehikes #spirallove #tuckin #seatreasures
