The day before we left Greece we went to the temple of Apollo at Delphi, its about a 3 hour drive north of Athens and is one of my favourite ruins. The day we went was about 30 degrees and by the time we got there and walked up around the site it was HOT, i cannot imagine doing it in the middle of the day on a 38 degree + day!
We had a couple of days in Athens where we caught up with a friend of Pete's from uni [Vicki] before heading to the islands, and then we had 3 nights before heading back to Aberdeen after the islands.
Pompei is a 1 hour exceptionally winding bus ride followed by a much nicer 20min straighter train trip from Sorrento. Front seats are a must for anyone not wanting to feel as though they would rather jump from the bus moving than go around another corner - and that was quite a few of us.
Some shots form when we were in Lyon in Dcember- gate crashing the Chaffers family Chistmas. Very beautiful and very very cold!!
Another day in the Office
We spent an afternoon wandering around town [looking for sun glasses stores] but it ended up being way too hot so we had to retire to the beach
1818m tall its the 3rd highest peak on the island. There is a hike you can do from here across the highest peak and down to the sea ont he other side of the island - no we did not attempt this.
Means the Valley of the Nuns which is the town at the bottom of the valley. We didnt go down into the town just took photos from the look out.
