Day 4

Next stop Ancient Olympia. After breakfast we took the long drove down to Olympia. This village houses the Ancient Olympia ruins where the first Olympics was first held. We arrived late afternoon and checked in at our hotel, which was called the Olympic Village Hotel. To be honest this wasn’t the greatest hotel. The rooms weren’t that great and there food wasn’t either.

After check in and a rest and of then use of there terrible WiFi. We went in search of a late lunch which consisted of ice cream and pastries. I was definitely not complaining. Then we headed for the ruins. It was so amazing how these Greeks built these magnificent structures. Then temples and even the first Olympic field were it was first held.

The place is quite big with a museum which is made totally out of marble, but the artifacts inside are amazing.

Once sightseeing was over we walked back to the hotel for supper. Then crashed early because we had another long drive ahead of us. Not sure about everyone else but to me the drives where getting a bit painful, lucky the scenery was beautiful.

So hears to out next town.
