Two night stop on Lefkada island, which can be reached by bridge. Too much sun and not enough internet cafes mean I am not so interested in updating this in detail at the moment. I will fill in the gaps later.
This pool was at the top of a mountain above Nidri.
Lots of bikes around - mainly locals and Italians. I haven't seen a full dress tourer yet - everyone is on trail style bikes or hybrids. GS's, V-stroms, Transalps, Africa Twins by the score. A few sports bikes - number plates seem entirely optional, so there are some very nice rear ends that don't have anywhere you could even put a plate. The police must be very understanding around here.
Found that my decison to leave Romania with 200 GBP in Lei was very stupid - I can't change it now. Hope I can do it in London.
Saw a bad scooter accident just after it happened. Not terribly surprised - the Greeks are the worst drivers I have seen. The scooter had caved in the front of the car quite badly. The rider was still laying there, blood all over the road - no helmet. He was conscious but it didn't look good.Posted by Kevin Payne at September 02, 2005 12:12 PM GMT
