... along the islands north coast, here at Rethymno (with quite an overview across Greece´s biggest island), ...

... towards the Peloponnes.

At the end of the bay to the right there are Nauplio and Tolon. As students we have spent some vacations there, driving down Yugoslavia with a VW Bus and sleeping in tents.

The northwestern end of the Peloponnes sees Olympia, where the ancient games were held and the fire is enlightened every 4 years. Actually the torch is waiting somewhere in Japan for the antidot to that new virus.

A slight region change: This is Calabria, the bottom end of the Italian "boot".

Leaving italy we face a race. The airbus below is another Aegean Air service, from Athens to Barcelona, ...

An excellent tour of The Med Gerold with so many places I had never heard of.

The trip in the VW sounds like a great way to see the sights..

Thank you for commenting, Ebo. Virtual travels have not been much cheaper than the real ones in the time before Corona: Return flight to Crete was about 200 EUR for me, and Olbia went with Easyjet. Apartments or B&Bs were also as acceptable as most of the restaurants. But now the times have changed...

Well Martyn, that is just my backyard. Once OLC Asia is released (@Orbx: The sooner the better!) you can return with your Southeast Asia knowledge :rolleyes:.

Travelling in the VW was not intended for sights made of stone or other inorganic material. Basically Ethanol or more complex carbon-based attractions B).

I guess so, if one needs to upgrade the PC. That is at least is an once off purchase (for a while at least ;))

 

But you have to eat, irrespective of flying or not.

The last shot sure looks like a good place to stop and get a bite to eat, ahem, and take in the view. :rolleyes::D

 

Great set once again Gerold. :)

Not easy to stop there: It is just a turn of 180° to the shot before, so there is nothing than taxis and a road... much better to go to the city center, get a bite there and enjoy natures beauties walking by...
