Following on my last post, here is a view of the little down harbour, another peaceful place to enjoy a post-dinner walk. Looking towards the own you can see Fortress Palamidi, the Venetia-build fortress up on the hill, and if you turn around you cans the venetian fortress of Bourtzi Castle, another Venetian-built fortress. It is such a lovely place to spend a few days.
Naplio is a charming little down in the Penepolese in Greece. I could spend hours wondering around the cobbled streets, looking at the wonderful old buildings and squares. It is so quiet and peaceful; I can see why it is such a popular weekend destination for the Athenians.
And as soon as I finished running the Europa Marathon I had to do two things. Firstly hydration, and secondly food. Luckily they were both available right at the finish line.
And I can promise you that I had more than 1 of both. Refuelling, of course, is very important!
This was my pre-marathon dinner when I raced the Europa Marathon in Gorlitz. Not only was it excellent, but it certainly hit the spot. Just perfect before a long race. I ate it at a lovely restaurant called The Potato House. It was so good we had a couple of meals there.
