Travelling is all about escaping from routine. But travelling can be more than you can imagine. After all, it is one of the best forms of education.

Travelling is mainly seen as a way to escape from reality. Children and adults are looking forward to that day when they are free of their obligations and can go on their long-awaited holidays.

But even if holidays are carefree, relaxing, and away from any obligations, that doesn’t mean they can’t become more meaningful. While holidaying, you might be surprised by what you get to learn. That’s why most travellers prefer to travel as their best teacher in life and history, cultures, and languages.

Firstly, travelling is often seen as a journey of discovery. It can be the discovery of yourself, your inner fear and desires, and your hopes and dreams.

It can help you bring out the best of you by teaching you organisation, responsibility, and management. Travelling will surely help you self-develop and gain confidence and independence.

However, travelling can also be educational in more traditional ways. For instance, travelling here to Ouranoupolis you won’t just enjoy the bright sun, the beautiful beaches, and Greece’s delicious food. It will also be a trip to learn about Halkidiki’s history, culture, traditions, food, and even some greek words to impress your friends back home.

At Ouranoupoli, you can learn about Halkidiki’s natural world by hiking at Mount Athos or exploring the sea life of the Aegean Sea. You can learn more about Greece’s culture by tasting delicious seafood dishes at traditional taverns.

Furthermore, you can discover more about Greece’s history. By visiting the tower of Ouranoupoli, you can learn of Greece’s endeavors during medieval times. But also about the glorious ancient Greeks since Ouranoupoli used to be a wealthy ancient city.

Lastly, at the Zygou monastery, you can understand better the importance of Christianity in Greece and of the sacred land, the Holy Mountain, which borders Ouranoupoli.
