It took about an hour to get to Sounio. We parked the bikes and went for a short walk to the cliff. the view is breathtaking and the road is excellent. It is must if you ride in the area. We sat for a beer and coffee and copied the helmet cam videos for Orestis before heading back. We still wanted to get to Delphi that day.
We parted company with Orestis in Athens and followed our GPS on the small roads towards the Northwest. It didn’t take long before we stopped for fuel and immediately put on our rain jackets as we looked at the sky. It turned to be a wise decision as it soon started raining. The roads were slippery so we couldn’t keep a good pace hence we didn’t stop until about 20 miles before Delphi.
The rain didn’t last long but dark clouds followed us on our way. We briefly stopped at Arachova as it is a wonderful settlement perched on the cliffs and we arrived to Delphi at around 18.30.
I cooked pasta with tomato sauce and meat while we chatted about the day and had a beer in front or the tents. We then watched the videos and pics of the day before actually retiring to our separate tents after a long but wonderful day.
Once again thanks to our great host Orestis and I hope to see you again mate!
