I'm back for the next week due to a fuel strike. We feared me might be stranded without any left in the tank! We got down to half a tank of fuel - just enough to get us back to Athens. So that's what we had to do. Boo.
Because of our plans to travel around the mainland this week, we have been hotel hopping, and a place to stay on Ithaca again isn't available until at least the 5th August. Can't stay with my parents right now, as there's some shit going down at their humble abode, but luckily, due to my mother's real estate agent status, we can get a cottage for free. Thanks, Mum!
So it looks like we'll have to make the most of home until we can return, but you know what that means, don't you? I'm back to blogging this week! Yay! Always squeeze a positive out of a negative. It prevents lasting disappointment.
So, on that positive note, I'll leave you with some snaps of our trip so far to ooh and ahh over :o)
Ithaca, view from where we were staying
Klitoria - clouds on the ground?
Lake Ladonas - again :o)
Xyropigaro - seaside village in the Peloponnese

I've never really heard of a fuel strike. What is it due to exactly?
Aubrie: Petrol tanker drivers are on strike so the gas stations have run dry! Ugh. Looks like they won't start up again until Friday. Major city crisis, I tell ya!ReplyDelete
THe photos are gorgeous - what an incredible place to live/visit :)ReplyDelete
Hope the fuel strike is resolved soon!
Um, can I come visit you in Greece? Like, right now? GREAT pictures!ReplyDelete

Wish I was there instead of here!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful photographs! Such beautiful country! So sorry you had trouble with fuel. Trouble everywhere, it seems. But hopefully you'll soon be back on vacation track.ReplyDelete
Sorry about your gas, but Super-Yay on the cottage! You've got a beautiful place to be "stranded".ReplyDelete

Sorry to hear your news of the vacation being somewhat cut short. However, that means good news for us as we get you back :)ReplyDelete
Ooooohhh......Aaaaaahhhhh.... seriously! I wish I was there. :-)ReplyDelete
Oh, what a shame. I think I had better go and top my tank up, the Greek Cypriots usually come out in sympathy. Anything for a day off. LOLReplyDelete
Love the pics, looks a like Cyprus in places. Enjoy your 'home break' and chill. :)
OMG, I want to go here!ReplyDelete
