So, it’s been 11 days and I havent written much at all, but don’t worrie this is not sign that I haven’t been busy – quite the opposite.
I arrived OK in Athens last Tuesday and spent two nights looking around (getting ripped off by shitty arse-hole taxi drivers) and exploring the Accropolis etc. After a coulple of good days, on the advice of Maria, I took a ferry to the Island of Santorini which is really nice. The place is famous for its white-washed houses and spectacular sun-set. I saw both.
After that I moved onto an Island called Ios which is supposedly the party capital of Greece (a title that I would dispute since it’s tiny) and naturally I party’d until I could take no more – 3 nights, before opting out and heading back to Athens. My aim now is to get myselft sorted and do my laundry (I stink) before heading to Meteora in central Greece and then I need to make a move towards Croatia. At the moment I have no idea how I’m going to do it since Thessaloniki (where I was heading) has been enjoying a good old riot, and then, if I go via Macedonia I have to go out through Kosovo. Read this to see why it doesnt sound like a good idea. The other option is a ferry to Italy and then back to Croatia, but that sounds like an expensive and boring alternative.
I had better get a move on now since I’m picking up my photo’s at 2pm and then I have to get my laundry and find my way out of Athens and sort out a room for the night …its a hard life 😉
Eddy. PS – I have been keeping a more detailed log but dont have the time to type it all up. Maybe one day.
