So beautiful! We've never been to a monastery but hope to go to one really soon! Glad you had a safe trip there; enjoy your stay!
Just beautiful and so serene. Precious of your 2 walking over the hill together. I love their similar mannerisms.
Wow- it looks so peaceful! I love visiting monasteries. I would really like to go to one during this Nativity Fast.
Yes, I caught the similarity in poses too!
I'm going to sit down and do a more verbal post on our experience there sometime. There's lots to share. I'm fighting a cold and haven't had the patience to write coherently so I haven't.
Such beauty in all of the photos, but by far my favorite is the one of your son in the chapel.
