Travel Blogs from Cattolica
Our first couple of nights in Greece were spent in a place called Alexandroupolis where we had found a campground that was open, which turned out to be a bit of a wonder in Greece, but it gave us the time to have an admin day, catch up on emails, blogs and also to do some washing.

And we duly downloaded a menu and chose what we fancied on it.....
