Trave to meet the boys
11 June 2013 | Greece
Our travels began on June 9, just about a week after I had been released from school for the summer. Luckily the flight was a little later in the day so one, we did not have to wake up early, and two it gave plenty of time to finish packing (I like to procrastinate a little). We started the journey at the Kalamazoo airport and from there we went to Detroit to catch our flight to Paris, France. During the whole travel time we never experienced a layover over 2 hours and when you put the time it takes to get from gate to gate it does not really give you too much time. It allowed enough for us to stop and have a little bite to eat of the best French cuisine the airport could offer before heading off to Athens. In Athens we had a little time to go through the duty free shopping but it was cutting it close. The only real problems occurred when going through security. Let’s just say I don’t think I have been through such a hassle going through security before. They made us take out pretty much everything, the good thing though is that they were doing their job well which I have to respect. After that we were off to Corfu where we would stay in a hotel for a night before meeting up with the boys. When we arrived at the hotel we felt pretty rough to say the least. But after a little rest we geared up and headed out to dinner. We loved the town the minute we walked up the hill by the fort. Both our meals were very traditional Greek and quite tasty (after all when in Greece eat like the Greek people). Once we went back to the hotel it was time to turn in for the night for much needed sleep. The day after would be the day we would meet up with the boys for the start of a 6 week adventure. We ate breakfast, packed our bags, mother went for a swim and then we checked out and called a cab. After a nice drive through town we headed to the Sahara sand covered boat. There was lots of cleaning to be done!
