Most people who live on Ithaki full time have a desperate need to escape their paradise at least once during the winter months. So, it's on the ferry to Patras and then on to Athens for a great long whiff of civilization with the added benefits of shopping, the cinema, theatre, music, a little pollution, a sea of colour and unknown faces, and a good look around the changing face of the city. Wow!  I'm excited.

A sunny winters' day in Patras with clear views of the surrounding mountains covered in snow. The air is fresh and crisp and the pollution so noticeable during the Summer is nowhere in sight. It's February and the Winter Sales are on.

A little train spotting?
