Driving in Greece

It's very difficult to convey to others how driving is in other countries. It's completely dependant on what each person is used to, where they've driven, and how they've been taught. That being said, I felt like I'd give it a go. I love driving. In my 20s, I'd go for a drive every chance... Continue Reading →

Delphi, Greece

The drive from Olympia to Delphi was another stunner. Once we had crossed the Gulf of Corinth we had a stop in Nafpaktos for a wander and some lunch before carrying on along the gorgeous coastline on a beautiful day. Like Olympia, we were a little surprised at how small Delphi was. It was a... Continue Reading →

Olympia, Greece

Unlike our drive from Nafplio to Sparti, the next drive to Olympia was relatively uneventful and we arrived in Olympia on a cold and rainy day, 2 hours before our agreed meeting time with the guesthouse owner. In that 2 hours we started exploring the town. 5 minutes later, we had finished. Oh dear. We... Continue Reading →

Sparti, Greece

We had several routes to choose from to get between Nafplio and Sparti. Perhaps unsurprisingly we chose the long route which took us around the Argolic Gulf before cutting inland and proceeding through a mountain pass. The coastal part of the route was beautiful and ran through several postcard perfect villages which demanded several coffee... Continue Reading →

Nafplio, Greece

Well tickle me pink and colour me the colour of surprise (let's say highlighter beige with fluorescent green polka dots). We did NOT expect Nafplio to be like it is. Although to be fair, we had no expectations of what it would be like. Located roughly the same distance from both Epidaurus and Mycenae, Nafplio... Continue Reading →

Road Trip

Car day! Road trip! Rrrrooooaaaadddd tttrrriiippp!!!!!! Today was the day we'd been looking forward to for months. Today was the day that the real trip started. Today was the day where we could feel free. Today, we picked up the car for a 2 week road trip. Wooooooooooooo!!!! After an interesting pick up routine (possibly... Continue Reading →

Athens, Greece

We arrived in Athens at 6am. It had been snowing the night before, was -3 degrees, and we had had no sleep during the 20 odd hour trip. And we felt a-m-a-z-i-n-g! After a 20 minute walk from the central station to our hotel to dump our bags before check in, we grabbed a coffee... Continue Reading →

Malaysia Final Thoughts

We fell into this trip really. We had planned to re-sign at our last university, however for several reasons we decided to move and, thanks to changing our visa, needed a simple and cheap trip for our 2 month summer break. Cheap and easy flights to Malaysia and Thailand were all we could really find... Continue Reading →

Melaka, Malaysia

Melaka was basically the last stop off on this trip, save for a final day in KL prior to our flight. Sam had visited Melaka a few years previously and was keen to show me around, which sounded great. But unfortunately we had hit school holidays. And oh my god...It was horrific. The city itself... Continue Reading →
