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.

This lively ceiling is in the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, one of the most interest and modern museum’s that I have ever visited. The ceiling is a replica of a synagogue ceiling. By a strange coincident we visited on 1 September, which was the anniversary of the invasion of Poland; 1 Sep 1939 – the beginning of the second world war.
Just around the corner is Mila 18 which played a significant role in the Warsaw Ghetto.
