Well we've got pictures for our diehard fans!
WARNING: THESE ARE BIG PICTURES AND MAY TAKE A WHILE TO LOAD
First, we had to pack 12 of us, plus our luggage into a dodge caravan and drive for 5 hours to get to the boat:
Then we got to the boat, and on the boat:
Since we had deck seats, we had to stash our luggage in a corner and take turns watching it. Three cheers for Veronica and Paul, our faithful night watch crew:
This picture gives an idea of the insomnia we all felt at not being able to get comfortable:
Soon we arrived in Patras, Greece. This is the ancient port where St. Andrews bones were transported to Scotland. This is why the Greece flag and the scottish (blue) flag are St. Andrews cross.
After the tough ferry ride, to reward us for our labour, we took a scorching 5 hour train ride to Athens, then a metro (subway), then a bus to the "village"
Except for a motorcycle, i think we took every form of transportation known to man...except hovercraft of course :) Something to tell the grandkids when we are all old and grey :)
Love you all, keep praying!
