Favorite thing: Visiting Saint Simeon in springtime was such a treat. Wild flowers were in full bloom everywhere around the complex of Saint Simeon. The flowers along with the perfect spring weather made the visit quite magical. For more pictures, check out the travelogue "Springtime in Saint Simeon."
Favorite thing: The Saint Simeon complex is perched on a high hill with strategic views extending west all the way to modern Turkey. Attached are photos of some of the magnificent views.
