Part 3 the Nicolette Files
Off on the last part of my Ranch Bucket wanderlust adventure with Nikki, Kauai eco-trucker hat in hand and ready to hit the road. After Skopelos and Skiathos we were back to Athens. We stayed at an airbnb that overlooked the ruins which was incredible, but it was a shared community so you had to share the showers. Economically this was great, but in hindsight when we went to shower we forgot our keys!! We then had to scale the building wall in our towels and Ranch Bucket tanks to get in through our balcony… not our finest moment and straight out of a comedy.
After that fiasco we visited A for Athens, a must go rooftop restaurant to overlook the city and watch the sunset over the Acropolis, the sunset was the prettiest color, matching Nikki’s Belize eco-trucker hat perfectly, I could not help but snap a billion pictures. This was a short lived trip in Athens again because the next morning we would be heading off to Delphi.
We took a bus to Delphi and this whole process was very easy to navigate. Once there our hotel was walking distance from all the archaeological sites and restaurants, so it was super convenient. Delphi had some of the most beautiful mountainous views I have yet to experience. It brought a whole new meaning to me about exploring the hills and made me very nostalgic for the Rocky Mountains. We visited all of the ruins and explored many trails, with the weather on our side. When it was finally time to leave the rain did come. Perfect timing. I did fall flat on my butt in the rain that day heading to the bus and was drenched for the rest of the trip, but all in all we could not have asked for better weather from Delphi in May.
That concludes my Nicolette files! Thank you Nikki for venturing out with me! Now who is my next guest to arrive… and don’t worry she brought all of her Ranch Bucket gear too!
