Today I had an unexpected day off work – When I arrived at the office at 07:50 this morning I was sent straight back home due to a fire which had taken place in the warehouse overnight.

Back Home Again :: Γύρισα στην Αγγλία

It has been a long week, but the good news is I’ve arrived back in the UK and have spent the weekend recovering from my adventure with the Belgian breakdown service.

Today was not the end of the holiday I really wanted it to be. Instead of driving back to England, I’ve only really made it half way.



Germany Again :: Η Γερμανία Ξανά

Tonight is my last night abroad and I am staying back in the area of Germany I came to during my first trip to Germany in 2006 (in the same hotel even); the same place I came to when I first drove to Germany 2 years ago.



The Alps :: Οι Άλπεις

I was impressed by the Swiss roads – they are good! Quite twisty and windy as you go over the Alps but in comparison to some of the Greek roads, not bad at all.



I’m Back In Italy :: Γύρισα στην Ιταλία

Italy – or at least Northern Italy – is a world away from Greece. It seems like the pace of life here is to much faster than in Greece. That’s not necessarily the case but drive for a few minutes on the Italian Autostrada and you’ll know what I mean.

You can picture me writing today’s blog update from the top deck (Deck 11) of Minoan Lines’ ship Cruise Olympia, sunbathing as we travel across the Adriatic Sea from Ηγουμενίτσα / Igoumenitsa to Venezia / Venice.

The change in the weather meant I had gone from 28 degrees, clear skies, Sunny in Glyfada; when I filled up with petrol in Athens I was greeted with a very cheerful: «Καλημέρα, καλή εβδομάδα, καλό καλοκαίρι» (Good morning/week/Summer) to being greeted with Καλό χειμώνα (= Good winter) in Lefkada.



To Glyfada :: Προς Γλυφάδα

Today saw the start of the long journey North, back to Gloucestershire – but not before spending most of the morning and early part of the afternoon on the beach at Galissas / Γαλησσάς.



Happy New Month & Happy Summer :: Καλό Μήνα & Καλό Καλοκαίρι

I went in to Ερμούπολη / Ermoupoli this morning and was surrounded by Greeks all greeting each other with the popular phrase ‘Καλό Μήνα’.
