What a week... couldnt find any Internet cafes in Greece (aside from Santarini)... so we
finally trekked to rome and sprinted for the Cyber Cafe...
What a whirlwind, we made our way from Athens to Santarini then to IOS... Ios is just a big rock Island in greece with about 150 bars ( no kidding ) so I spent alot of cash, blew the budget but had a blast in Ios... then off for a 34 hour ferry and train ride to Capri, an Island off of the West of Italy. Although it took forever to get there... Capri was awesome, straight out of a post card...
I think it was the nicest place I have ever seen... We went swimming in the blue grotto, a cave too beautiful for words... I have tons of pictures though.
Blue waters of Capri, Italy
We then decided to skip Pompeii and treked over to Rome where a nice man (grin) showed us to a pensioni. As we speak I am sure he going through packs and trying on our underwear =)
So here we are in Rome...
The Trevi Fountain - Rome Italy
Aside from that... the ferries we took from the islands (overnight ferries) are a huge
party... Sorta like cruises. Pool, bar, dinning room and lotsa people from around the
world just dying to have a good party =)... and its a blast sleeping in the deck. though
cold at times... (far cheaper than the cabins..)
As for travel companions... we traveled with 2 New zealanders... 2 califournians, one girl
from seattle and me, karen and chuck (8 of us) for about 1 week then slowly started
splitting up... its me and chuck as of this morning... the way things are going I doubt we
will be travelling just us 2 for long... People are very friendly and its really eazy to
So much has happened in the past week that I cant possibly fit it into here... I will fill
every one in when I get back.
Well I think I will go get some food... no one talks english here... its always an
adventure getting things done...
