What a day we had yesterday. You really do have to keep a sense of humour and a ‘no panic’ attitude when travelling in some parts of Europe.

A strike in Italy meant we arrived too late at Piraeus port to catch the ferry to Kos. The knock-on effect of that would probably have added three days to our trip!

Fortunately, Sandy on Kos has been very flexible. She’s been looking after Daisy, Midget and Gnasher, three dogs who are travelling back to the UK with us. To save time, she boarded the overnight ferry from Kos with the dogs last night and will meet us at Piraeus this morning. Thank you, Sandy!
