We’ve spent the last ten nights at Camping Ionian Beach in Glyfa (ACSI €19/night) and didn’t do very much at all. We took the van out to the supermarket a couple of times, went out for walks and I went on my first bike ride since Split. We also spent a few fun evenings with some fellow Brits who were on site – Katherine, James and their lovely hound Oscar ( and Julia and Simon (

The weather has been mixed – mostly cool and sunny, though for three days it hardly stopped raining, so we were stuck in the van. We watched some TV and fortunately the campsite had excellent WiFi, so we were able to keep ourselves entertained. I also started a new ‘Van Life‘ section on the blog.

The Greeks celebrate Epiphany on 6th January, so Christmas isn’t so big here. They did have street lights up in the village though, along with a ‘different’ nativity scene. 

On Christmas Day we had a simple (but delicious) chicken tray bake, and the van was given a wash on Boxing Day. Today we’re back on the road again, travelling further along the Peloponnese coast, and tomorrow we will visit Olympia.

  1. We stopped by the nativity scene the next day. One of the blow up reindeer had fallen over but there were now two cardboard sheep and a cardboard goat filling out the scene 😀
