Up at 5:30 for a shower this morning, only had to get up a few times after Simon got to bed so at least I wasn't too tired. Tummy is still sore and my back and sides now too. We met up with the others and everyone was feeling very sorry for themselves after a big night last night, most of them hadn't slept so it was a very quiet ferry ride to Athens.

... off on a walking tour after a great breakfast at our hotel. Mmmm for Greek yoghurt and fruit!! We stayed on the walking tour for a half hour before paying our guide and bailing... Great info but he spoke way too slowly for us to take anything in.
