We woke up to a delicious breakfast made by George, our hotel keeper.
After packing up the trucks we rode a few minutes to the ruins of the Oracle of Delphi.
We climbed up a long, hilly, path surrounded by really cool ruins including the actual Oracle temple ruins, ruins of huge, ancient offerings, ruins of a large theater, and finally ruins of an ancient running track.
We travelled back down to the museum where we learned even more about these famous ruins. After this we all piled back into the trucks and made our way to Olympia. We stopped for a really great lunch halfway to Olympia after passing a very cool, modern-looking bridge. On the other side of the bridge we stopped for our lunch at a seaside restaurant and finished off our rest stop time by skipping rocks to let off a little energy. Next, we crashed in the cars for an hour and a half before arriving at the Hotel Europa in Olympia. After our rooms, our next stop was the hotel pool where we played catch and categories.
Today has been really fun and I think it’s only going to get better. 🙂
