The 8 hour ferry from Ios to Athens nearly killed me. I was very tired and emotional (hungover), but managed to pep myself up towards then end of the trip which got into Athens at about 8pm. Travelling with me was Mike (Newcastle), Tash (Melbourne) and Tristian (Another Canberra boy)

We found our Hostel which was basic but good.... until the power went out. Found a Souvlaki and went straight to bed.

Fortunately my flight had been delayed, so I had the next day to check out Athens.

After an earlyish start the next morning, we headed straight into the centre and Checked out the Parthenon.



After 5 days of partying and not seeing much it was good to do some real touristy stuff. Said farewell to Tash and Tristian, and headed to the Archealogical museum in the afternoon which was fantastic. I was amazed at how good the sculptures were seeing that most of them were made over 2000 years ago with limited tools. Detail was phenomenal, right down to the veins on the arms!

Headed back to the Hostel to pick up my stuff, said farewell to Mike and headed back to London.
