Fed up?

Ok. Today is a wonderfull day over here.
This is the view from our offices over Athens port (Piraeus)
28c and the sun is shining.
Cancelled all my appointments.
Called the wife to pack some clothes.
I am taking the day off and going on a small trip for the weekend.
With the SLK.
Top down.
No route planned.
Just the two of us.
Oh, and the wife also..... ;-)
Will post pics....
Take care!

THAT...is what an slk is for!

Enjoy the break.

A group of us are heading to the coast, but I doubt the wet north of England (rain forecast)
is going to match your plans.

Won't stop us trying thought.

Ok. Here we go.
Pit stop and coffee for the trip.
I planned a route of approx 150 km of mountain roads and then spend the night at a nice resort at 1.200 meters altitude.
This is going to be fun.

Tea Time.
Little village by the mountain.
Would really like to post some pictures of the way here (nice mountain view) but I was driving like a lunatic and didnt want to stop.
I promise I will stop later on and post some pics for your viewing pleasure.

Reminded me of my cruise port stop on 10/10/2015. We booked a full day tour that visited the landmarks like Acropolis instead of the scenic places in your pictures.

Great pic, and fab plan. We were in Athens in May. What a great place (but the parking and narrow streets in the city are just awful!). Can't wait to go back.

We are at a small village of 50 people drinking something called "double greek boiled coffee"
I think after this I will have to double my valium dosage unless I want to go back to Athens on foot, running, in order to take the caffeine out of my system.
