Athos Diaries

Here I aim to publish the diaries of my visits to Mt Athos, the peninsula in northern Greece where there are twenty Orthodox monasteries and numerous sketes and cells. I first visited Mt Athos as an Orthodox pilgrim in 2013. I have now been five times and visited eighteen of the monasteries (and slept in fifteen of them). I hope in the future, with God’s help and the Mother’s blessing, to ascend the peak itself – at 2,033 metres.
