    Delphi and Patras

    June 1 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We left Athens after collecting our hire car, and headed toward our first hotel. On the way, we stopped an an overlook, Arachova. The town itself was very quaint, but we pushed on reaching the archeological site of Delphi. Had a 5 minute cool rain drizzle, followed by some camera issues (horror!) but the site was very interesting with a “stadia” (running and athletics track) at the top. Below the site is a museum, with artefacts recovered from the site. From there, we drove to the town of Patras, and our apartment. We grabbed the chance to use the washing machine (always a joy to find on vacation!) then headed out to find dinner. All the restaurants in these towns seem to centre around a big square, and after getting directions, we found the spot. Then came decision time. We decided to go to the one where all the people were. “Talks” - a great decision! The manager apologised that all the tables were booked after 10.30pm, but if we could be done by then, we were welcomed. It was only 8.30, so was fine. The food was great, and the music cranked up Greek Latin Swing. It was awesome! We’ve since searched on google, and have downloaded. Sated with food, wine, ouzo and music, we reluctantly left, and headed back home. It was a fabulous place for a birthday dinner!Read more
