Cape Sounion

Greece, Sounion, Temple, Poseidon

Making the most of my extra day in Greece after the competition had ended, the trusty travel guide came out again to lend some suggestions of where to explore. I headed south and was greeted by some superb views over the Greek coastline. My destination was Cape Sounion to visit the ancient Greek temple of […]

From Norway to Italy…

Germany, Road, Trees

This was always going to be a bit of a mission of a trip starting with the ferry from Norway over to Denmark, through Germany and onto Italy. In Germany, I managed to cut a few corners on the trip taking the scenic and empty minor roads in favour of the autobahn. However, I was […]
