500 – 500 posts!

Webmasters and brothers Herman (hv) and Wim (wv) Voogd would like to thank all our visitors from many different countries all over the world. Many thanks also for your comments, suggestions and contributions. This weblog started more then a year ago as a preparation in Dutch for our Athos trip in May 2007 but has become a place on the web where a lot of information in English and visual impressions of the mountain can be found. If we want to continue this weblog we need more material. So If you have stories or photo’s mail it to us. Use ” mailformulier” on the bottom left of your screen and mail us your information. Thanks again and we go for 1000 posts.

    Mijn felicitaties met zo’n mijlpaal. Athos spreekt mij enorm tot de verbeelding, het is ook een plek die een publiek uit de hele wereld trekt, vandaar de enorme omvang van de kloosters. Ik vind dat u een prachtige indruk weet neer te zetten met dit log.

    I love your pictures & history. I was lucky to see it Athos in 1992. I recall seeing lots of ruins off in the trees, and always wondered what their history must be. At last, people enthuusiastic enough to have the same curiosity! Thanks very much. Keep going, the more esoteric the better! So many times one reads a small account, like “There used to be a monastery called Old Russikon” and that’s all there is’ what happenned to it?? You are filling in the gaps.

    I am delighted to see this web-site. I found it by accident when I was surfing the web. I am familiar with Agio Oros very much, considering I am a theologian and Iconographer of the Byzantine Orthodox religion. I wish you both very much success in your lives and your endeavors. I will visit again soon to share my experiences of this Holy and historical place.
    Respectfully yours Athanasios.
