Hi Zandesiro

As I'm typing this, I'm watching Patra dissapear on the horizon from the lounge window on the ferry. Just spent a month in Greece. On my way to Italy now.
Judging by your last name it sounds like you're from Peloponisos. Would have been nice to hook up with you for a ......maybe next time. Welcome to the HUBB.
Cheers for now. Neville

Greece, ah what a wonderful country. When we were in northern Greece in late 2009 we had such a great time, now we'll be doing southern greece and island hopping from Italy across to Turkey later this year. Can't wait.
