Excellent, Konstantinos. And welcome.

The more from Athens, the better. Invite all your friends too!
I can feel an Athens trip developing - Brian?

It's dead easy.

Pack bags, head for tunnel.

Take 3 days to get to Ancona and board ferry for Patras. (Next time I'll do it in two!)

Leave boat after 24 hours cruising the Adriatic and head east on E65.

Costas, Konstaninos et all will greet you at the Corinth pay booth and take you to the nearest bar.

When sober, repeat above steps in reverse order or buy house in Greece and don't come back.

Wish I'd done that last time... ;D

This kind of sounds like : I wake up in the evening, cross the channel, have a day's ride in Nord - Pas de Calais - Picardy, and return home in the evening.

If I understood this correctly : I know some nice roads for such a day's ride ...   8)

By the way : welcome, Konstantinos. As far as I remember, names are quite often "abbreviated" in Greece ? I once knew a Greec (Air Force) collegue named Panagiotis, whose name was abbreviated as "Panos". I guess Costas isn't the correct "abbreviation" for Konstantinos ? Because if it is, we'll have some name confusion here, soon  ;)
There are I0 kinds of people : those who can count in binary, and those who can't...

hehe..you are right.. My name is abbreviated as "Kostas" and "Costas" so we can avoid confusion with the "K" letter  ;D

Mmm
Taylor Woodrow just offered me 25x my annual pension to cash out and disappear. Maybe I should pull the pin and go to Greece...

hehe..right after that HE will be bought from pensioners for 50 times their pension.

At the end all the pensioners will fight who is the main owner while they forget their people.

Greece's history 1980 afterwards  :'(
