|So, three weeks in Greece to look forward to. The sun is shining, the temperatures are in the low twenties, the sea is warm. First things first: a week at the beach for a rest. (A rest? I know, I can hear you laughing from here.) Some time to get all the washing done, clean and polish the van, do some research for the next leg, get some much needed exercise, etc etc.
We drove down the west coast of the Peleponnese from Olympia to a small town called Finikunda where we've found a good site right directly on this glorious beach. (I say we found it but Graham and Fiona, the Scottish couple we met in Sicily actually told us about it). Doug is beside himself every morning when we open the door and he realises it's still there. Nick has this little app on the phone which has an army PT instructor putting you through your paces, but I'm favouring a walk along the entire length of the beach twice a day in soft sand, keep those thighs in tip top condition.
The plan is to spend around a week here, then head around the south coast to the Mani peninsula for a while. For now, though, I'm signing off. Another cuppa, anyone?
