Ioannina, Greece (6-7 Oct 2012)

Ioannina is a castle town located on the banks of Lake Pamvotida and is our last stop in Greece before we cross the border to Albania. We arrived on Saturday and since we make it a point to only cross borders on weekdays, we had two days to walk the streets of Ioannina.

The city is very pretty with lots of old trees lining the banks of the lake and colourful rows of shops and houses. The city is lively with many cafes and restaurants to while our time away.
