Leaving Greece and sailing to Italy
Submitted by bugsly on Thursday, March 9, 2006 - 04:33 Boat | Car | Core | Foreign Language and Music Study | Greece | Italy | Train | Walk

This morning we headed out to say a quick goodbye to Kostas’ mother and then go to the main Athens train station. We were headed to Patras, the primary Greek port for boats traveling to Italy.

Our first regional train was right on time and we jumped aboard and jumped off a about one hour later. We then caught our second train; the deal is that we had first class seats on this second train because it was going to be a longer ride. We then realized that the first class seats were the first car directly behind the engine. The engine was so loud that we couldn’t hear ourselves speak, the honking at city cars was a gentle hum in the background and to talk to some one you had to stand centimeters away.

We then found the ticket office for the ferry company “Superfast” (It really does live up to its name) and then headed into the ferry itself. Once inside we headed to our cabin and set up all of our stuff we then explored the ship, did a little work, read, and such until we were doubled over by hunger. We looked at the multiple restaurants onboard and chose the self-service one. I had some yummy Bolognese Spaghetti, where as Michael had spaghetti with tomato sauce (basically pasta was the main dish). After watching the original 1969 “The Italian Job” that we rented from the onboard movie rental, we all were rocked to sleep with the waves and the soft hum of the ship’s propeller.
