Travel Blogs from Rimini
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.
Whilst there, we also caught up with some of the Dutchies that we had met in Turkey (travelling in an off-road expedition truck) and also met some Germans who were on their way ...

Eventually at about one we headed back to the hotel to find that a bucket of ice containing a bottle of bubbly stuff and two glasses and some chocolates had been left in our room :-) well we couldn't let it go to waste!!
