      June 9 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      Our last day in Greece we spent driving back to Athens via Delphi. We left Lefkada and traveled a familiar route to Antirro but instead of the bridge or ferry, we stayed on the north side and drove along the coast until Itea, where we stopped for lunch. We only saw 2 boats, a few villages and beaches, and some fish farms. At Itea, we turned inland and up through the mountains to Delphi. As it was too hot (+38C) and we still had hours of driving, we didn't linger at Delphi. The Oracle was telling us to move along! We arrived at our near the airport accommodation at 1830 hot, hungry and tired but Bob wanted to do a trial run to the airport and car rental. Of course we got muddled with one way streets and roads every which way. After some "hangry" words and silences, we found our way. The plan in the morning was to drop me with the luggage at the airport while Bob returned the car. I suggested we both deliver the car and let the shuttle take us to the airport. It's a good thing we did that as Athens airport was bedlam and as it turned out, we needed the 3 hours to get the baggage sorted, get through passport control, and security! When we checked the bikes in, the AC attendant, who was lovely, said it was going to be €600 🤯 to which I responded with a photo of their baggage policy that bikes are $50 when you book ahead, which we'd done. It required an over-ride to their system but it all got sorted. It was $75 for the checked duffel so I suggest that everyone register their checked bags as bikes and pay less! 🤪🤣
      The flights were long and with only a slight delay in Montreal, we arrived in Vancouver at 2030, collected our bags, caught a taxi van and we were home by 2200! 24+ hours of no sleep but great to be home and in our own bed!
      The end of wonderful adventures and now, Sailing Sea la Vie ⛵has come to a close. 🥰
