Ella, Louey & Soph's Travels!
HOLA HOLA!!!! Once again, a very tricky task on where to start!!!! This one will probably be brief, not too much time left on the net!! Firstly, hope you are all well, i;m missing you all lots! Really I am! We sadly left Ios for the second and final time...well at least for this trip anyway! Was very sad to leave, we really really loved it there! We boarded our 6th ferry in about 3 weeks and headed to Athens! After a very sickly ferry but luckily with the entertainment of the movie Ã¡bout a boy, and some trusty sick bags....hahah, just kidding, there was none of that! We finally arrived in Athens at our favourite port Piraeus! We had nowhere to stay and proceeded to ring from payphones all the hostels possible in our guide books ! After a few more calls we finally found a place to stay, oh this was after one of the hostels offered us a place to stay on their roof with the chickens!!! HAHAH!! So we hopped on the stinking hot but very clean metro in Athens to our new accommodation for the night! Luckily, it was perfectly located, pretty much right next to the Acropolis! yay! Ok, skipping to the next morning, we got up at the crack of dawn (very hard to do!) and we made it to the acropolis entrance, we were the first to be let in and what an amazing experience it was! As you can see by the photos, it really is spectacular! Was a great way to end our time in Greece which let me tell you was very sad! All in all, Greece was really so much fun and i would definitely go back there without a doubt!!! So just a quick run down, it was a four hour flight on our trusty new favourite airline, fly globespan to Scotland! We were only in Scotland, glasgow for a night as it was cheaper to go via there to get to POrtugal (where we are now!)! Scotland was pretty cool, i absolutely loooooovvee their accents, except for when they are so bloody strong, i really feel like they are speaking another language.....a very funny comment from the guy at the desk of our hostel (the first hostel of the trip so far) was when we asked how are you today? his reponse was...im feeling as rough as a badgers ass!...now just imagine that from a long haired dude with an extremely strong scottish accent, pretty bloody funny!!!! Then after a restless sleep due to the excitement of Portugal and our funny dreams as a result of asian food from the night before....we made our way to Glasgow airport again to get our plane to Portugal!! Oh and forgot to say, Soph got her nose pierce in glasgow....VERY EXCITING!!! Now soph and lou are nose ring buddies...yay!!!hehe! I feel left out so iÂºve been thinking of many ways that i can mutilate my body!! hahah....just kidding!!!! So, after another great flight, a few bacardi breezers later and some wacky photos of each other on board we landed in Faro, Porugal! Was such a beautiful view from the plane, really clear turqiose water and beaches for miles! Once again, we had nowehere organised to stay....of course it was straight to the vodafone shop at the airport so we could all feel connected again to the world....what bloody yuppies, ey!! :) Then after a few calls, we found a place to stay! Its a pretty cute place, we have our own room again which is always a huge plus and at a pretty good price too....all hostels were booked out!!! Shame ey!! Had a fairly early night as we were exhausted....was about three or four days travelling all up to get here, early starts and three coutries in three days!!! We were very proud! haha! This morning, woke up and decided to head to the beach for some more tanning, its scary how quickly it can fade!!! The most strangest things happened though!! While we were waiting at the bus stop in Faro to go to the beach, we saw a bus go past...we knew Jess and Rachel were here somewhere but then...out of nowhere a bus drove past us and guess who was sitting on it!!! yep, jess and rachel!!! was so cool!!! There were no windows on the bus so as they drove past us there was a lot of oh my god, jumping around, screaming, waving hands!!! We knew where they were headed as they had emailed us.....they jumped off the bus and ran down the road with their backpacks to meet us!!! Was so great to see them again!!! They were heading to Albufiera for a few nights so of course thats where we were heading too!!! So....trying not to confuse you all....we are in Faro now for our second and last night here, we are heading to Albufiera tomorrow for about three nights to meet Jess and Rachel!!! And guess who else Wildy the Wild man is meeting us there too!!!!!!! So, im sure there will be quite a lot of partying to report on the next journal!!!!! Really hope youÂºre alll well, once again iÂºm posting another journal entry that is all over the place so sorry about that!! Love you all loads and loads, being away is the best, but it does also make you appreciate everyone back home so Miss you all and thinking of you always!!! Lots and lots and lots and lots of Love, Ella xoxoxoxoxoxoxox
