We left Athens at 8am and headed west to the Corinth Canal. One side of the canal is the Saronic Gulf and the other is the Sea of Corinth. I went to a very high bridge and allowed Chris’s ashes to spread over the bridge. Apparently there is bungee jumping on this bridge. Hard pass for me!
We continued on to the Theater of Epidaurus. This was built around 300 BC and it is 90% intact, which is pretty amazing. The grounds had various other ruins so I walked around a bit and found a bench under a beautiful tree where I spread Chris’s ashes.
We continued for a bit and stopped for lunch. At the restaurant, we were asked to walk in to the kitchen to choose what we wanted. First for me!! I had grilled snapper and a Greek salad. It was so fresh and delicious!! And I’ve really been enjoying the Greek salads and all the feta cheese!!
After lunch we continued on to Nafplion. It is GORGEOUS!!! Don’t get me started on the view from my hotel room. It’s a nice little town with lots of shops and restaurants. We arrived around 3pm and I decided to wash some of my clothes since I packed very light. We will be in Nafplion for two nights so it’s a perfect time to make sure my clothes dry. I finished washing and then I got ready for the evening. We left the hotel at 5:15 and went up to the Fortress Palamidi. The views from the top were stunning! This fortress was built in the Venetian style with a lot of arches and curves. I found a nice area and I left Chris’s ashes in a little pile. It is very windy so I know the wind will spread his ashes through the fortress.
Afterwards we went to dinner in the main city center. Dinner was fun and filled with delicious food! I sat next to a couple that is from Pasadena so it was nice to talk about LA with them! I left the restaurant and decided to walk around a little bit. I still can’t believe my view!!! Until tomorrow!
Have passport, will travel.
