Grækenland har masser af flot natur og lækre sandstrande med azurblåt vand. Vi gik lidt rundt i Igoumenitsa og fik selvfølgelig Ouzo, Tzatziki og Gyros :-)

Da vi kom tilbage til bilen stod der en gut og kiggede, han spurgte om han måtte se den indvendig. Det viste sig at han var på udkig efter en rejsebil og den faldt lige i hans smag. Han spurgte om vi ville med hjem til hans familie og spise, desværre havde vi lige spist, men det kunne da være hyggeligt at få et glas friskpresset limonade. Vi sprang ind i hans bil og 5 min efter var vi hjemme ved dem, Christof og Sara havde lige fået en lille søn, Nicholas. Det viste sig at de er nogle utrolig rare mennesker, med en dårlig hørelse, så vi endte alligevel med at spise aftensmad ved dem :-) Vi fik vendt og drejet hele verdenssituationen, det virker ikke som Grækenland er helt vilde med Merkel og EU…

Da vi kørte derfra var der desværre en turistbus der havde valgt at dobbeltparkere bag os og Morten overså dens sidespejl da det er så højt monteret at det ikke er at se i Volvoen spejle. Når plastik møder Volvo, så taber plastik! Det resulterede i en arrig chauffør og et opkald til Politiet som optog rapport. Vi fik at vide at vi skulle møde op på politistationen næste morgen.

Christof og Sara havde givet os anvisninger til en lille bitte strand ca. 30 km sydpå. Den var svær at finde, vi masede Viola gennem et lille hul i et hegn og kørte meget stejlt ned gennem en olivenlund, inden vi kom til stranden. Den lå utrolig smukt i en bugt med bjerge på begge sider og var fuldstændig ugenert.

Næste dag kørte vi til politistationen, men de forklarede os at det da ville tage mindst 3 dage at renskrive rapporten! Heldigvis fik vi dem overbevist om at sende den til os på mail.

Greece has a lot of beautiful nature and nice beaches with blue water. We wandered around In Igoumenitsa and of course we had Ouzo, Tzatziki and Gyros :-)

As we came back to the car, a guy asked if he could see the inside. He told us that he was looking for an adventure truck and it was just like he wanted it. He asked if we would join him and his family for dinner, unfortunately we just had dinner, but we agreed that it would be nice with a glass of fresh lemonade. We got into his car and 5 min. later we stopped at their place. Christof and Sara just had a little boy, Nicholas. It only took a few minutes to realize that they are really nice people, but hearing impaired, so we ended up having dinner with them :-)

When we left, a tourist bus had doubleparked behind us, Morten didn’t see its mirror as it was mounted to high to bee seen in the Volvos mirrors. When plastic meets Volvo, plastic looses! It resulted in an angry bus driver and a call to the Police. They wrote a report and told us to meet at the Police station the following morning.

Christof and Sara gave us directions to a beach, 30 kms south. It was hard to find, we squeezed Viola through a small gap in the bushes and drove down a steep slope between olive trees, but there it was. Small and intimate, in a bay with mountains on both sides.

The next day we drove to the Policestation, they told us that it would take at least 3 days to type in the report! Luckily we convinced them to send it by mail.
