Beal athlete, Anne Struble, shares some trip beta from her recent travels to Leonidio, Greece.
When I describe my trip to Leonidio, I always say the climbing was quite good, maybe not my favorite in Europe, but still loads of fun. The Leonidio lifestyle though? I loved it. From the start, Leonidio was rejuvenating. After 12 hours of air travel and a 4 hour drive, we arrived in Poulithra a little town 3 miles down the coast from Leonidio. When I stepped out of the car, I was greeted by the heavenly smell of jasmine and the delightful feeling of warm air on my skin, despite it already being well past sunset. The next morning, we awoke to a beautiful sunrise over the mediterranean. Needless to say, I was psyched. Things only improved when we went climbing.
