Our flight was a late one. We landed at about 12:30 AM Greece time. We waited one hour in the line for our car and got to our hotel at 2-ish.

Tomorrow was destined to be a better day. We left the hotel the next day to go to the Pelion Peninsula. It was a lovely spot on the beach. We stayed in the resort because there was so much to do. There was our villa’s private pool, the huge communal pool, minigolf, tennis, baby tennis, the beach, soccer, basketball, a beach bar, supping, kayaking, sailing, windsurfing, and breakfast, lunch and dinner! It was crazy awesome! The only things we didn’t do were tennis, basketball, sailing and windsurfing. On top of all the things to do we had a private villa (with pool) and the weather was amazing!

My favourite thing was stacking rocks at the beach. I got the idea to do it from seeing a dude rock stacking in Portugal, and from when I made three rock stacking towers in Slovenia’s Vintgar Gorge rock stacking city.

It was a three hour drive to our next and final destination in Greece. We were staying in the closest hotel to a popular ski mountain. Lucky we didn’t go in winter or it would be crowded with skiers and snowboarders. On the first day we went to Delphi. At the ruined city we saw the ruins of Apollo’s Temple, “the centre of the world”, and all the other rubble. We also saw the museum which had ancient statues, parts of walls, worshipping utensils and a bunch of other stuff. We had lunch at the new town as well. Lunch was so big that we ate cornflakes for dinner.

The next day we went to a little town called Arachova. We attempted to go to the belltower (which failed), saw a church, ate some lunch, walked around, climbed some stairs and ate dinner.

We left the mountain to go to Paris the next day. My favourite thing was the friendly stray cat that hung around the hotel. The people said you can pat it so we did.
