India to UK in 90 Days – Greece Chapter – Escape To The Coast

As i finished my chores in Athens,i moved south towards Sparti and Githio.All thanks to Antonio who suggested me to go and check out the pristine and peaceful coastline of Greece.Sparti reminded me of the Hollywood movie “300” and i was very keen to find a Leonidas statue and get a picture along with it.Small detour to Epidavros to check out more Greek ruins.Of all the structures Greeks made amphitheaters were the most strongest ones as most of the Greek ruins you visit,you might notice that the amphitheaters are in most immaculate condition.

As i leave from Epidavros I end up here around Nafplion.What beautiful coast and crystal blue water totally impressed.I wished if i could go down there and join other folks for the rest of the day,but then quite crowded for me to be at peace 🙂

There was a castle around,but too much steps needed to be climbed.I skipped it and started towards Sparti.

I circled around Sparti twice to find the Leonidas monument but, all i could find was the Acropolis of Sparti.Nothing much just some ruins.Later i found out that the monument lies on the other side of the Greece from where i arrived.Dropped my Polaroid action camera while riding towards Githio, managed to find the scattered pieces except the memory card.Reached Githio in the evening and as you cross the town and go a bit further you see couple of camping places next to the beach.I camped myself and the bike around a nice spot and went out to grab some beers and drown myself in the water 🙂
