We set off about 11am and travelled the coast road winding round the rocks, looking down on bright turquoise sea. We were heading for the next big town – Preveza, to find a bank, a tourist office and a campsite with wifi, washing machine and a nice sandy beach.
We found the bank – the manager said the cash machine had no money in it and to return in half an hour. We found the tourist office, it was closed until Monday. So we bought supplies and headed out of town to find a campsite. Thankfully we found the Kalamitsi Camping village; Free wifi near reception, and almost empty as due to close for the season in a few days. Perfect.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
