Having delivered all our passengers who travelled with us from the UK, we were ready to start collecting the pets who’re leaving Greece with us.
Before that, however, there was time for dinner in Glyfada.
Cute black cat Joey belongs to Nikolaos and family. They’re relocating from Athens to Somerset, and of course Joey is going too.
Ginger and Obama
Ginger and Obama belong to Mia, who’s relocating to the UK for work and taking her beloved dog and cat with her.
Sade and Phantom
These gorgeous street kittens from Athens are travelling with us to Dorset, where their new owners are already looking forward to welcoming them.
Starbuck and Tyche
Another pair of Athenian rescue kittens, this sweet twosome are off to live with Fred and Sandra in Scotland, who’re very excited about their imminent arrival.
When Andriana was over from the UK visiting family in her home town of Athens, she met and fell in love with Toufa, a dog being taken care of at the Filozoikos Shelter. Andriana renamed her Sophie and offered her a forever home in Surrey.
Boston Terrier Dante belongs to Nik, who’s relocating from Athens to Horsham, where his mum is already living.
Lovely mixed-breed dog Jessie belongs to Nikos, who’s moved to Preston for work. Jessie’s been looked after by Nikos’s family until she could travel to join him.
Beautiful tortoishell puss Cassie belongs to Emma.
Clifford, Georgie, Squash and Coco
Genine, her Labradoodle Clifford and her cats Georgie and Squash have been on holiday in Paros, along with Genine’s sister Lolly and her Cocker Spaniel Coco. Now it’s time for this fabulous foursome, who travelled out with us in May, to go back to the UK.
We drove from Athens to Thessaloniki where our final two Greek passengers were waiting to get on board the bus.
Super Maltese Terrier Billy, who’s quite a chatterbox, is travelling with us from Thessaloniki to Worthing in Sussex. Tanni delivered him to us, and Linda is ready and waiting for him in the UK.
Darling Yoshi belongs to Maria, who’s relocated from Thessaloniki to Kidderminster for work. Now Yoshi’s on his way to join her.
We made our way along Egnatia Highway, northern Greece’s main highway which goes all the way to Istanbul. It was a beautiful journey but with very changeable weather.
