Last day in Athens

Still feeling rubbish I didn’t eat anything but dragged myself out of bed, sculled some water and got out the door again.

Door to nowhere…

It’s really hot so I’m careful to stay hydrated. I do another loop around the city to see the sights. I’m lucky my hostel is so close to the centre of the city – walking further in the heat would have been unpleasant.

The scale of this ancient and crumbling fortress is impressive.

As it was in the midday sun, getting to the top of a hill overlooking Athens was a challenge, but it was entirely worth it. The clear sky and the elevation gave me a perfect view out over Athens.

Worth the effort in the end!
