Week 11 on the road.
On Friday, I went to Πάτρα (Patras), and came back on Monday. I saved a couple euro because I could book it round trip. It was a pretty good trip. You can read the post on it if you’re interested.
Friday to Sunday were at an AirBnB in Patras. It was a really good rate considering I had the place to myself plus access to a pretty sweet roof…and the hosts were amazing too.
Monday to Thursday was at a hostel in Αθήνα (Athens). The rate varied by day, but I was too lazy to calculate that and just divided the total by the number of nights.
On Friday, I made a grocery run, because I wasn’t sure how getting food during Easter would work: $15.13. I’m glad I did too, because it lowered the rest of my food bill for Patras. I was also able to make some of the best tea I’ve had since…I can’t remember. Fruity tea with a side of cinnamon swirly crackers/cookies…so good!
Monday to Wednesday were a little higher than normal due to going out to eat with friends at least once a day. Though I did manage to keep it pretty low even for going out.
Thursday was ridiculous due to drinking at karaoke night. Not that I need alcohol to sing in front of a bunch of strangers, but it certainly helps.
Travel insurance: $3.07 per day.
On Monday, I did laundry. The laundromat is expensive.
On Wednesday, I went to the Museum of Cycladic Art, and saw a bunch of stone figures. Museums in Athens are considerably more expensive than the ones in Θεσσαλονίκη (Thessaloniki)…or anywhere else in Greece that I’ve been when I think about it.
On Thursday, I bought more data for my phone. As awesome as GigSky is, it is mildly annoying that their plans only last for 15 days at most. I didn’t really need more data yet; I needed to stretch my time out to ensure coverage for my remaining time in Greece.
So, not great, but not terrible either. Considering I changed cities, it was actually decent. Remember, fast travel is almost always more expensive than slow travel.
Until next week….
