    Postcard stands are the best way to become orientated with the most popular tourist sites before being bombarded by tour sales people. (And yes often they do give a clue on photos to avoid – those twee tired overused shots) What did the Frappe with Baileys taste like? Mm… sounded awesome.

      Yup, and Delphi was a wonderful place for it. One long street of restaurants and stores with the same poorly rotating postcard stand.
      Frappe with Baileys is good. Remember to ask for no milk. The milk overwhelms the baileys and the taste is gone. It is a nice smooth thing with a kick of both the baileys and coffee; but cooling which is good for the Greek summer. This seems to be the national drink in the heat here. Learned of it from my boat skipper.

    Amazing photos! I`m dying to get to Greece and my list of places to go while there keeps getting longer 🙂

      Thanks. I would really advise taking more time that you think you need. Things run slowly there, especially in comparison to Germany. It is a neat place, but a way different world than even I was expecting.

    Wow, those views look amazing! I definitely see what you mean about understanding how people thought the place was special. Too bad you felt so rushed getting through it all!

      Yeah, I felt rushed; but in the end had enough time to enjoy. The rushed feeling was about the transport system not the place. I have no need to see the ruins again, but the town itself and Itea below were neat.

    Wow. Ruins don’t tend to be my thing, but WHAT A VIEW. I would make the trip up just for that and then enjoy the ruins because they just happened to be in such a spectacular location 🙂

      The valley was really neat. I met a guy who was spending a week in the area hiking around. Sounds like fun actually. Check the travel links though, to-from Athens seems ok, but other transport links felt a bit unreliable.

    I love the pictures Andy! I could totally imagine myself there again 🙂 I thought Delphi was very peaceful, and you showed it in the pictures.

      Aww thank you. It was pretty peaceful in places, though there were little tourist herds too. I wish I had not been so stressed with timing and could have relaxed more in the town.

    I really enjoy your photos and insite. My family is moving to Germany my wife and kids have been there since last April. I am finishing my work here in the states and will be joining them in December. One thing we love to do is travel, and you have given me many idea on where to go and what to see

      Thanks for the comment. Your move sounds exciting. There are so many cool places in Europe to travel. Even in Germany there are a lot of great sights without even leaving.
