RINGING ON HEAVEN'S DOOR

Dias Islet, Kefalonia
The Chapel Bells on Dias Islet

On Dias Islet

Some places are just that...AWE INSPIRING
So "uncommon," so self-defined...
A strangely formed floating rock, just offshore, with only a small chapel atop, and hundreds of seagulls keeping vigil till the summer visitors arrive.
Most come on a pilgrimage in the beginning of July to participate in the centuries-old religious event. Among them, the curious who join in to experience the climb, the view, the exhilaration of being just a little bit closer to the heavens.
The climb is steep and exhausting - I lost count at the 100th step! But conquering Dias was well worth it.
