Travel diary: Christmas in Elati 2013!

Hello! So I know Greece is most known for its islands but it can also be a great winter destination too. There are so many amazing places to visit! Two years ago we decided to spend Christmas in Elati. Elati is a small village in Trikala and I believe it's named like that because it is full of firs (fir=elato in Greek). I think it's safe to say it was the best Christmas of my life! The place was magical! Every house roof was covered by snow and you could see christmas decorations everywhere. You truly felt the spirit of Christmas!
We stayed in a small and cozy apartment which had an amazing view of the village and it even had its own fireplace! So, when it comes to food I think we overdid it a little bit.. I tried wild boar for the first time and it was so good.. The local food was great in general and the people were so kind and welcoming. We also visited the ski resort in Pertouli but unfortunately we didn't have the chance to ski or surfboard.. Here are some photos of the village and some other places we visited..

Firs! Firs everywhere!

Scarf and cardigan: Zara
Sunglasses: RayBan

So we stayed three days in the village and the last day we visited the "Grinder of the Elves" (Μύλος Των Ξωτικών) which is the biggest Christmas village in our country. It really felt like we entered a whole new world! There were so many small houses selling every type of candy you can imagine! They even had small houses that were entirely made by chocolate.. For a few hours we felt like being children again.. I highly recommend visiting the Christmas village, it will be such an unforgettable experience!

Om nom nom...
