Sep 6, 2011 - Lavrio - Volos

Lavrio - Chalkis - Volos Am 6. September trifft Gisela bei uns auf der Ceti ein, nachdem sie für die relativ kurze Taxifahrt vom Flughafen Athen nach Lavrion ziemlich ausgenommen worden ist. Den Nachmittag verbringen wir mit Sonnenbaden und Einkaufen in der angenehmen Marina. Am anderen Morgen gehts bei viel Wind los. Dieser starke Wind, immer von vorne und mit unangenehmer Welle, wird uns in den nächsten Tagen auf der Fahrt durch den Evvoikos Kolpos begleiten. Unser erstes Ziel, die Insel Megalo, müssen wir zugunsten eines Halts am...

Oct 31, 2010 - Portaria

A quick run down the motorway with views of snow-capped, mount Olympus. Light lunch, sitting outside, at a friendly Taverna with Rick and Diana before the final steep ascent with hairpins to this pretty village. Sunshine all the way except for fog in one valley. 3 degrees C at one point, but warm later when you stay in the sun.

Certainly it's disruptive to go sleepless in Riga, and then roll Load down tothe Reval Hotel to take a 5:40 am shuttle to the airport, waiting while returning throngs of black-jacketed Russians and their blonde dates wobble by, drunk, exhausted, exhilarated or otherwise in an altered state from a night of clubbing. Note to Russian Guy: yanking on your...

Aug 13, 2004 - Olympics 2004-Athens Greece

After a long journey and some bumps along the way I have finally arrived at my first major destination, Athens, Greece where I am set to work for the entirety of the Summer Olympic Games. Greece is hot and the excitement is in the air with anticipation of the Opening Ceremonies. I don't know quite what to expect, but I do know it definately has the makings of what could be tons of fun! The landscape of Greece is much like New Mexico, with out nice beaches. The people are friendly. Athens has been completly transformed for the Olympics.
