Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Greece on Wednesday, 16th-October-2013. Estefini to Athens. 28 miles. I was still on the road nice and early despite not having far to go. I know what it’s like when I go into big cities. I always get lost, and yes as per normal I did!
Once I sort of found the centre, I found a hotel booked in. I wanted to make sure I had a room. I also got a city map from them so I could go in search of the sights. Mainly the Acropolis. Whilst I was checking in it started to pour with rain really heavily. So I sheltered in the hotel lobby for an hour or so and picked the receptionist’s brains. I wanted to know where bike shops were and where I could get some packaging material from.
The rain just wasn’t letting up so I just went for it. I needed to get on.
I found the Acropolis, but unfortunately, it was up a big hill. And not accessible with my bike, so I never really got my picture taken with it. I also managed to sort packaging and bags for my stuff. The only thing I haven’t sorted is a box for my bike, hopefully, I’ll get one tomorrow!
