We spend the morning cleaning, washing and old jobs before driving into town, the Vodafone SIM card and dongle won't work. It connects to the Internet but we can't open any pages! The girl in the shop played around with it for a short while and the called technical services, who couldn't get it to work either. We gave up! We set off for the Vale of Tembi, a massive gorge carved out by the Pinios River between Mt Olympus and Mt Ossa. The roads were very quite, it makes you ...

We made it about another 10 minutes before we were being actively swarmed on by bees and wasps alike, and numerous other enormous bugs from some nuclear fallout disaster, and we ended up running all the way back out the the road. At this point Leanne, in her indefatigable optimism, suggested to walk up via the road; I said 'sod that, lets get the bus'.
