After a good breakfast we left Athens for Patros where are to get a Fast ferry to Ancona and then travel to San Marino. Weather is great and after 1.5 hours we had a half hour comfort stop near Corinth. Jackie did a little shopping and after a Powerade we were again on the way.
The route we are using is the reverse we used to get to Athens. This is because the fires have made the alternative route unsafe.
We arrived at Patros - our embarkation port to Ancona about noon. There was a computer problem with the tickets but we got onto the Fast Ferry about 1.15pm.
The ferry is very similar to the one we traveled to Greece on however i understand it is 3 times as big. We are to be on the ferry for 25 hours and it is of the same quality as the first ferry. They were built in 2001 so they are very modern.
Being on board is like being on land as the water is so calm. It has been very restful and we have even had a little time reading.
I have tried to use the Internet but it is not easy and very slow.I have sent off post cards to some of you and Jackie has done the same.
We are in the best health we have been on the tour which is good and we are looking forward to returning to Italy before continuing onto Austria. Just finished a nice dinner of Pork Chops and desert and about to go along to the Pokies.
Then i suppose we will be off to bed.
