Kind of the first of our trip, but of course just me on this one, Barry that is!. Not quite the result I was hoping for in Athens, but getting the opportunity to go to a European Cup Final that Liverpool are in was Amazing! (Thanks Dave!) Basically we flew to Athens at 6am on the morning of the match which gave us an opportunity to see a bit of the city, Hard city to find your way around on foot,  but the metro way is the business so we were ok.  Had a few musacka and a beer then went up to the Parthenon/Acropolis.  Am delighted that we got the chance to see this as it is amazing and makes you realise how old the world is, if that makes sense!...

That's the culture out of the way!, now the match!, in short, we got there, that's Dave Barry and Myself by train. We arrived with about 20 mins to spare, and by that time there was no hassle with ticket entry or trouble as reported on Sky, we just walked in as normal. Stadium is amazing and was just full of Liverpool fans and we were right in with them, was brilliant. The noise was incredible.
The game itself was not great, but I thought Liverpool should have won, if only we had a striker I think 'ol big ears' would be in Anfield now. But not to be. The train back to the city was a lovely experience.. NOT. Full of lovely people, discussing fights and 'twatting'  coppers or 'bizzies'  It was like something out of India the train was that full! Lovely, but we survived.  Great experience and hopefully there is a trip to Moscow next year!!!!! So the lyrics stay the same 'we won it five times'!!!!
 
Anyway just an intro to the travelblog, lots to follow from Eva!
