Danger! – Beware of Goats in the Road

When traveling through the countryside of Peloponnese, Greece, be prepared to stop for herds of goats crossing the road. We’ve encountered goats near a toll booth on the National Road, on remote mountain roads, in narrow (really narrow) roads of villages, and country roads by the sea. We can’t seem to escape goat encounters when driving in Peloponnese. Though I must say, goat traffic is better than car traffic.

Read about our hair-raising encounter with goats in a tiny village on the island of Kythira here.
