Got to Naxos on the fast ferry and had a look at the information place to see if we could get some accommodation.   Again, we had a few in mind, but they did not have availability so we went with one that was recommended in the Lonely Planet and was also owned by the

Delphi and Olympia

After Meteroa we travelled to Delphi to see the Santury of Apollo which included the temple of Apollo, the amphitheatre and the stadium, the gymnasium and the temple of Athina. This was all pretty much rubble, but the stadium was pretty amazing. We then drove to Olympia which took us across to the Pelopenese (spelling??).

Well, we’ve arrived in Greece and we’re no longer ‘on tour’ so to speak. No transfers, no director, no timeframes. We got through customs and found our luggage, got some euro, and headed to the train station. This was all remarkably easy. We got our tickets, got on the train and we we’re away. We
