After a long and rainy winter, the hiking season is back! For our first walking tour we visited the gorge of Vouraikos or Voraikos which is located in the north side of Peloponesse, 63 km from Patras and 170 km from Athens. This hike is part of the European path E-4 and it coincides with the track of Odontotos, the railway with the toothed rack rail that connects Diakofto (Diakopto) with Kalavryta.
A different kind of day, spent by taking a trip on the little train of Pelion, designed in the late 1800s by the father of the famous painter Giorgio De Chirico, who was born in Volos during the construction of this short railroad.
And these images of his childhood influenced him remarkably, making the trains one of the recurring symbols in his paintings.
