Few weeks ago, as we were heading towards the spring`s end, for one more time we took the decision to take the road to Boeotia.

Part I KABEIRION
This time , the first place was Kabeirion of Thebes.
Here is what the Ancient traveller Pausanias wrote about this place: The Cabeirium
It took us some time to find this place , as it was in the middle on nowhere without any signs or guide maps around.
Part II THE ROAD TO MOUNT HELICON
It was already late in the afternoon when we took the road to Mount Helicon
Part III THE BIRTH PLACE OF HESIOD AND THE VALLEY OF THE MUSES
After some time going up to the road in Mount Helicon we arrived in "a cursed place, cruel in winter, hard in summer, never pleasant" (Hesiod "Works And Days"). Its a village named Ascra and thats the birthplace of famous poet Hesiod.
It was getting dark and we did not had much time left as in Hellenic countryside is quite hard to see something during the night because there is not many lights. Only inside villages, in main roads and highways.
We checked our map and we noticed that we were really close to the valley of the muses and Hippocrene.
Unfortunately, we did not found those mythical places because it was already dark.
