Just a week before Christmas I visited Epirus for work, my ongoing travel project with Ouzo MINI. First stop was Ioannina and the next few days were spent exploring the magnificent Zagori village complex. I was lucky enough to test drive the brand new Volkswagen Polo during my trip, I drove a bit over 1500km in total, and I can easily say that this little car has grown and feels much bigger in every aspect. When traveling for work things can get very tiring – it’s work after all – and that’s when you need the amenities that a resort such as Grand Forest Metsovo can provide. Some spa treatments and swimming in indoor heated pools never hurt anyone, right? Especially when it’s snowing outside! Check out some photos from my visit below.

The pool was frozen, I was tempted to walk on thin ice for once.
