From Italy to Greece

After mourning the loss of the Greek national  team against Costa Rica in what some might consider the best game of the world cup so far, we gathered ourselves and bade good bye to Sorrento.  We arrived at the airport and bought lunch. Ryan bought a Big Mac and did not finish it.

We then caught a plane to Athens airport and made our way to the Hotel Stanley. After settling into our rooms we ate dinner on level 9 and Mr Chambers gave us a short explanation of Athenian history.

We then raced up to the top floor where we all jumped into the pool with a beautiful view of the Parthenon.
In conclusion today was mainly a day of travel and rest.

  1. Now I know this is just a little late, but there is a scurrilous rumour circulating that Mr Pyne availed himself of a powered bicycle at the Caserta Palace whilst the rest of the party were left to slog it out themselves up the long 3km climb through the gardens. If not a flagrant breach of the rules, then a breach of tour protocol surely?

    Word is that conditions are terrible, with our boys being forced to eat gelato in horrible towns like Amalfi, having to wander around ancient ruins learning of architecture and ancient Roman culture. One can only imagine the hardships they are facing on a daily basis.


  2. After the wonderful time you’ve had in Italy, I am sure Greece won’t be a disappointment. Hope you’ve set aside some space in your brains to absorb more exciting tales. Enjoy! We love your blogs.
