Once getting in the end of the Preveli gorge, this paradise lagoon is waiting for you <3
I was hiking the Preveli gorge with my Austrian friends from camping Koutsounari, they talked already earlier to go to do this walk and once they were there nearby, I got a sms If I would like to come with them and of course I said a BIG YES! We spent few days parked next to the venecian bridge of Preveli which was built by the monks of Preveli. Harald has a good GPS map for walking so we were ready to go around the gorge. We had plenty of sun, but the day was VERY windy, but it didnt stop our happy hiking team. Thank you Renate and Harald to asking me with you, was wonderful walk and delicious vegetarian lasagne, not forgetting the "tiger-cake"! Renate you are amazing magic woman! So here I have put many many photos and since I normally walk alone now there are also pictures from myself since Renate and Harald took many photos too...
Happy hiking team ready to start!

|Looking down to the lagoon|
We needed to pass the river so Harald was exploring the best (less deep) way to do it. When it was my turn to "jump in", I can assure you that the water was very fresh. Doggy I needed to put on a lead, since she doesnt like to swim, though she loves the water!
|Doggy and me crossing the river, exciting!|
After the river crossing it was a time to have a break, little bit eating, resting and Renate did her magic and was serving raki out her bag, jamas to Preveli and the hiking team ;)
|raki, raki, raki ;)|
|Kisssssssssss me pleaaaaseeee !|
After the break ready to continue the road, visiting the palm forest before climbing up again, was worth it!
