Today was a full day of sight seeing. We left the hotel at 9 and drove to Mycenae to see the Castle there as well as Agamemnon’s Tomb. During my free time I chose to climb up the castle and enjoy the view. It was a steep climb so I hooked my camera on to myself with a carabiner and took a backpack with water. This means there are not as many pictures today because I was trying to not trip! While I was up there I spread some of Chris’s ashes. While I spread his ashes, I saw two butterflies fluttering around and took it as a sign that he was happy with where I was spreading his ashes. I made my way back down to ground level, then went to see Agamemnon’s tomb. It was pretty amazing to see these sites that are over a thousand years old!
Afterwards we went to a winery! We toured the grounds and then tasted four wines. I bought a library wine. I was in heaven. After the tasting I decided to spread Chris’s ashes in the vineyard.
We continued to a restaurant for lunch and I ordered chicken skewers with French fries. Everything here has french fries. Afterwards we went to a place where we saw how they make ceramic items. It was pretty interesting!
We headed back to the hotel and I took a nap. We met up with the group again at 5:30 and we went out for gelato. It was DELICIOUS!! We walked to see two old churches as well. Afterwards we were in our own for dinner, so I went to a place called 3Sixty. I had steamed mussels and a Greek salad. It was delicious! I sat outside which was lovely; however, there were a lot of mosquitos and I was being eaten alive. I left promptly and returned to my hotel to shower and pack to leave early tomorrow morning.
Have passport, will travel.
