The first time we took the road to Volos we did so in rapidly descending darkness and then into the night.

This time, on our way back to the airport we get to see what we missed for most of the journey on the way in.

I’m curious about the many little shrines  along the route, they are difficult to get photographs of but I do my best…

…even the bus stops are typically Greek with their tiled roofs, as are the variations of Greek houses, apartments in larger towns, many displaying the Greek flag from their balconies.

Along the way the kids start suffering hunger pangs so we stop at a bakery and pick up a pastry to tide us over until dinner time.

As we pass though Volos itself, a sign on a building tells us that the temperature is still 20 C, even though it’s already early evening.

Our in-laws lead the way in their rental car, we follow in ours, they are leading us to a good place where they say they have a little surprise in store so we are busy wondering what is coming next…

    • Carrie,
      I have to confess that most Greek pastries look far too dangerously yummy. A sign of not spending long enough somewhere is that you didn’t get to try them all… sigh, we might HAVE to go back LOL!
