Today's zie big day: the pilgrimage to Mount Athos, the Holy Mountain, in Greece.
It all starts with a two hour bus ride to Boston Logan airport. After clearing the TSA anal cavity check, we'll have a seven hour, bone crushing flight to Zurich where we'll enjoy a five hour wait for our connecting flight. Mmm, five hours hanging around a stinking airport with blaring loud speakers and and constant threats of more body cavity violation. Jealous yet?
From there, we'll take another five hour flight to Athens, Greece. We'll have four hours to catch the bus for a six hour ride up to Thessaloniki, Greece. From there, the ferry ride to Vatopedi Monastery at Mount Athos.
I'll be posting frequent updates and photos at http://mountathos.posterous.com
