Hello all. After spending 17 days in Turkey its nice to be moving on. Turkey was great, you get quality kebabs for $1.50 and the people are really friendly. Dave and I also got a Turkish bath which is something everyone should experience if they're in the country. Anyways after 18 hours on a bus we finally arrived at Athens. To be honest without the Ancient Ruins Athens doesn't have much going for it. The city is congested with pollution and there is not much to do here. Plus the traffic here is terrible. But even so I wish i was staying here for a couple more days just so i can have a proper look around. Yesterday we checked out the famous Acropolis ruins. It was cool but not amazing. The place is saturated with tourists and there is construction of the ruins happening all over the place which sort of ruins the vibe. I preferred the Ephesus ruins, there is less Tourists and there is no construction happening. Today we're off to Rome. Looking forward to it. Will write again soon. Callan.
