Day 2 – Olympia

Student entry/reflection…

We began our day by forcing ourselves out of bed to freezing cold rooms, having left the air con on all night.

After we got out of bed, we went and had breakfast downstairs. We then packed our suitcases and said ‘cheerio’ to Delphi! After an eventful, long and scenic coach ride, we arrived at Olympia.

Once we were there, we had a buffet lunch at the Touris Club, full of delicious food, where 9 students managed to eat 100 watermelons! We then departed to our hotel. After checking in, we went to the fascinating museum, we saw many artefacts, statues and cats! We walked to the ruins of ancient Olympia and there was many wrecked buildings, such as the Temple Of Zeus. We even saw the Olympic Stadium and quite a few people ran races!

Returning to the hotel, we went and swam for half an hour, which was very refreshing!

We had some scrumptious dinner on the hotel rooftop with an amazing view.

We had time to buy some souvenirs at the local shops, and then had a sublime ice cream! We then walked back to the hotel to get some sleep for an early morning the next day.

It is a very early start for the final day touring Athens!
