It was a warm day today, so when I got down to the coast – although most locals were sitting on the benches in their coats, hats, scarves and gloves, for me it was warm enough to go for a paddle, followed by a short swim.

City Exploration: Piraeus, Ag. Paraskevi and a Concert

Icon Written by Fred Hart on July 4, 2014 – 23:47

Today has taken me to several places around the city. I really am making the most of my unlimited Athens travel pass. Although this does include the busses, I’ve yet to actually use them: the underground is more convenient.
