hiking up the hills around Athens

Active Naturists

After posting about our splendid hike at Mt Olympus, I probably shouldn’t call the activities I describe in this post ‘hikes’ – a ‘stroll’ may be a better word. Regardless, Athens has quite a few hills at its borders, and they provide magnificent views of the city and an easy escape into the wild-ish. Not many people seem to be aware of that, so it was easy for us to find trails where we could hike naked without “disturbing” anyone.

It’s covered by a nice mix of trees, shrubs and grasses.

It is nice to sit and relax there on a later autumn or an early spring day, which would be too cold for a beach but good enough to sunbathe there.

Bill Schroer: Shedding the cultural myth of the ‘perfect body’

Naturists live to a great extent within a subculture isolated from the rest of society. Some live nude at home (as I do), others are nude when they visit a naturist resort. The rest of society doesn?t notice naturists too much, because the laws regarding public nudity have so far prevented naturists from practicing their philosophy in public.

While naturists aren?t immune from TV, the naturist society?s rules and culture are different. A key tenet of naturism is ?body acceptance.? The notion is simple.
