Long Day

April 14, 2008

In further Greek news, I have found out how I will be meeting my family once I hit Greece, Wednesday morning Greek time. I have to catch a train from Athens to a place called Kalambaka- 350kms away. Sounds easy right? Well turns out, there are 4 trains each day that do this route, and I miss out on the first train by about 30 minutes. The next one is 6 hours later. Seriously, six freakin’ hours. I have 6 hours to burn in Athens all by myself, oh won’t that be fun. Before we leave to go back to Australia my family are spending a couple of days around Athens. I won’t need to join them, I’ll have seen the whole city. The train trip is five hours, meaning the time from when I land in Greece to when I meet up with my folks is 11 hours. So I am spending a total of about 32 hours alone (including flight and train), knowing only the Greek words for: yes, no, where, train station, do you speak English, thank you and please. I leave tomorrow at 2pm, and I’ll be back on the 26th. Catchya later all.
