After deciding to skip breakfast to get some extra sleep, we woke up on the ferry. We were supposed to get to the port of Patros around 12:30pm, but it took a bit longer than expected so most of the morning was spent literally waiting for the ferry to dock. Unfortunately when it did, we had a three hour bus drive from Patros to get to the island of Poros where we would be staying. The bus wasn’t quite the same without Enzo, but luckily it was bigger than our old bus. It was also a beautiful drive along the coastline, so it wasn’t too bad.
On the way, we stopped for lunch at the Canal of Corinth. The canal was beautiful and I was shocked how deep it was. For lunch, I had these lamb kabob things which were really good and a Greek salad which is really just tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, feta and olive oil – but also so delicious. Also at lunch, we had a “moment” when Adam said he wouldn’t be able to go on the excursion in Greece because he didn’t have much money left, so most of the group pitched 2-3 euro so that he could come. It was a great group moment.
After lunch we got back on the bus and finally made it to the port to get to Poros. We took a quick boat and finally (FINALLY) we were there. Our hotel wasn’t very big but it was right on the beach and even had a very beautiful pool with a bar in the back. Plus, college tour groups like ours were basically the only ones there – perfect.
Shortly after getting there (and having a drink) we had dinner at the hotel which was a Greek salad (which might be my new obsession) and a gyros. So good. I love Mediterranean food so I am all about it.
After dinner, we had our welcome drinks from the hotel and spent the night swimming and dancing at the bar. I don’t think anyone is very unhappy with this place – I love it!
