I’ve been to the most southern point of Europe and you haven’t

I posted this on my other blog, not sure why as it is directly related to this blog… But hey shit happens right. Anyway, as the title states, it’s about my trip to the southern most point of Europe, Tripiti, Gavdos.

Anyway, check out the post and see what I had to say about it.

Tripiti is it’s name, so named because of the headland that reaches out into the sea, that contains three arches, on top of which some travellers decided to build a giant chair, to mark it as the southern most point of Europe.
