Cycling in nGreece
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
It is hard to pick the best thing about the trip but the best day had to be cycling from Mycenea to the Corinthian Canal - Beautiful countryside, a visit to a winery, undulating country roads, scenic views as we dropped towards the sea and watching the Corinthian Canal open to let a ship through. The highlight of the day was a picnic on a hump back bridge followed by an invite by a passing local family to drink coffee and biscuits in their garden (all 18 of us!!) to celebrate a Greek tradition of welcoming and respecting travellers. This was a true reflection of the Greek hospitality.
What did you think of your group leader?
Christiana couldn't do enough to please us. She worked tirelessly to accommodate our every wish, from choosing the perfect restaurants and menus, finding fabulous picnic spots, arranging a Greek Music and dancing evening to telling us all the local history. She was brilliant and a real asset to Exodus.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Take a camera!!! Cycle a few hills before you go!!! Go in Spring, not summer. Don't expect to lose any weight despite cycling- the food is in abundance and too delicious to resist!!!
