So a last minute dash to the car yard to collect the final paperwork for our car and the green card travel insurance which is super important apparently!
Greek bureaucracy with paperwork will never surprise me, they have forms for filling in forms.
We thought our drive to Patra to get the ferry to Bari would take about 1.5 hours - WRONG - massive road works are going on and we were just over 2 hours on the road. ...
