Where I stayed
So these shots are for my mum, sites with the kids. FYI "sharse" or "show us" mum was the other response I got from the kids when I asked them to pose for photos. The initial reaction was a roll of the eyeballs and a "do we have to Mum?"
We left Pont Saint Esprit at 7.05 Friday morning to catch our 9.30 am train to Rome via Nice, Ventimiglia and Genoa. It was a flying stop as Rome for 5 people adds up so we stayed in a place out of Rome and had our moments. We arrived late with all our bags into Rome late Friday night at 11.30 pm and made our way to what we thought would be our apartment, only to find out that we were just getting processed and still had to ride the metro 3 stops away to our apartment
Monday we checked out and with bag watching shifts at the Roma Train Station we explored Rome all day. We survived the overnight train to Bari then spent the day waiting for our 8.00pm ferry departure. The ferry ride was awesome even though we were only on reclining chairs. But it was a very comfortable ride with plenty of room, showers and clean toilets and staff on-hand to help with anything.
We arrived in Patras the next day (Wednesday) at 1.00pm and then took a series of buses and trains to get to Athens
Campbell has been keeping up with his school and doing well. Hannah has been learning more songs on her "charango".
Our Greek, we have discovered is stinky as we only have a page of words from our Europe guide book. But the Greeks seem to know English better than the French and Italians, so... lucky us?
This is Andrew, the Greek people I have met so far have liked Australians... heh heh the fools.
