Yesterday was our most active day! The ship docked at Katakolon, and we left the ship to do our own thing.
We both wanted to see the first Olympic Stadium – at least the ruins – and where they light the Olympic Torch. The first thing we needed to do was to sort out the train.
When we boarded the train, we sat as close to the driver as possible, so we could see where we were going – if we stood up, that is! This train service is largely a tourist service – although not totally – and this has allowed a lot of grass to grow between the tracks. I have tried to capture this in my photograph! We had about half an hour to kill so we wandered around some of the tourist shops.
When we arrived in Olympia we walked to the archaeological site and saw the two areas we were particularly interested in. When we were happy we’d seen what we wanted to see, we walked back to the village and had a cold drink and a bite of lunch.
We had five minutes to spare when we arrived back atthe train station to catch the LAST train back to Katakolon – we could not afford to miss this train because it arrived back 5 minutes before the ship sailed. A couple more photographs at the Olympic site.
Finally, meeting all the catering staff on Friday evening, celebrating Royal Caribbean’s 50th Birthday.
Finally, today’s towel animal we both agree is a bear! YAY! Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow! Happy crafting.
