Our third day started with a 5hour train jurney from Athens to Kalambaka (metiora monistries) which started at 8.20 in the morning and arrived here about half 1, the train was very full so for the first while we had to sit in the luggage compartment. we then got seats miles away from each other and while oli was talking to a woman that was studying biochemisty in athens who spoke english, i was watching a man with no teeth eat loads and loads of buiscuits. and for breakfast on the train we made pitta bread with sweetcorn and philidephia and crisps. Munch!
the train terminated in kalambaka where we cooked our lunch on the platform which consisted of pasta sweetcorn and philidephia and crisps. Munch!
we then set off into the hills to find somewhere to camp, we found the most amaizing cave in one of the many cliff faces. we left our stuff in the cave and went into town to buy more food and water and beer. On the way back to the cave the heavens opened and the rain fell. heavy!!!! so we were very glad to get back to the nice dry shelter.
in the cave we lit a fire and jammed out for time, cooking on the stove and listening to donn letts (reggae). The firewood ran out around ten so we made a litre of coffe and hit our bivvys, for a surprisingly comfortable nights sleep big thanks to alpkit.com for out sleeping mats and army surplus is kensington gardens.
