Out of Greece

On to Africa

sunny 33 °C

Our last day in Athens is invested in a little R&R and not a small amount of recovery from last night’s excesses. With Emma and D’ell heading back to London today, we meet for a late breakfast on St G’s famous balcony overlooking Athens. A few of us were suffering, and given the backdrop, this photo was fittingly entitled: "Monumental Hangover"!


Lloyd is off-loading almost 14 pounds of kit (clothes, some of the technology stuff) on poor Emma to cart back to London for us, in preparation for our journey to Africa tomorrow. We are taking a puddle jumper from Nairobi to the Masai Mara on Wednesday that has very strict weight limits of 15kg per passenger, and Lloyd’s kit was about 26kg upon departure! We’ll still be over, but we’d rather keep the excess to a minimum, as we don’t know how secure the ‘storage’ will be for excess luggage! In any event, his pack was too heavy and we’ve still got a long way to go!

The only thing I surrender is my running kit. Who am I kidding when I think I’ll run in every country? May as well get rid of it now and lose the guilt associated with shuffling it around my pack for the next five months.

And that’s about us up to date! We’re not expecting to have internet access in Kenya or Botswana, which could mean our next post will be from Cape Town, South Africa on the 3rd or 4th of August. If we’re lucky, we might get to upload some posts from Victoria Falls around the 25th July, but that might not be possible. So don’t send out the search parties until August….
