Naples no more - 16th April 2008 @ 4:00 pm «   »

Location: Italy : Naples no more

Sorry we’ve been quiet for so long, net access is flippen expensive here. After some thought we decided that three days in the Naples area was enough. The weather also have not been playing along.

Yesterday we took a ferry over to Capri, but unfortunately we chose the worst day weather wise. The wind was near gale at times with scattered showers. We braved walking around on the island streets and also a bit our of town to some of the older buildings. After getting soaked once we decided that was it and had some pizza while waiting for the ferry back.

We took the 8:55 Train from Naples this morning to Bari and it’s here that our plans have started to change. We were suppose to get the ferry tonight from here (Bari) to Durres in Albania. Only there is no discount with our rail passes and they are chanrging 120 euros for the one way trip! We found out that a longer trip all the way to Greece is covered by our passes and we only pay a small supplement.

So we’ve decided to make the first big deviation from our plans and go straight to Greece tonight. In the process we are loosing out on seeing Albania and Macedonia, but we were only planning on spending 1.5 days in each of them, and 120 euros does not make sense in that case.

We’ll try to catch up in more details soon (in Greece), but in the mean time I have to run, Marizanne is waiting by the bags at the port about 3 km away and this place is charging 5 euro per hour for internet access! Unbelievable!

Cheers Italy, Hello Greece! Chat soon, jan
