Ben woke me up at 8:45 because we needed to get leave at 10. Turns out they were pretty relaxed about us hanging out in the room for 15-20 minutes after 10 since we had given the key back and stripped the sheets. We had to leave by latest 11 so we got a taxi to the train station and took the airport line. Greece has a lot of reduced ticket prices for students which was good. When we got to the airport we checked our luggage and headed to the gate to have a little chill out before boarding.
It was quite nice to get away from the unbearable heat of Athens. The flight was fairly average but it was so bright! My sunglasses have proven to not be dark enough and I got sunburnt through them so they didn’t provide very much protection.
Ben slept through the screaming baby on the flight while we listened to the Rubens and I wrote the last couple of days of this little mini diary.
When we got to Napoli we took a bus from the airport into the main train station, Naples Centrale and bought a ticket on the Circumvesuviana line to Torre Annunziata and started walking to where we thought our hotel was. When we couldn’t find it, we asked one of the men standing outside the building where we had to go. Since they didn’t speak English and we didn’t speak Italian we had to use google translate and after 30 minutes and me feeling quite sick we took the train back to Naples. Our hotel was a 5-minute walk from the Central Train station but the Google Trips had directed us 20km away! After we found our hostel both of us we’re exhausted so we laid down and showered before heading out to dinner.
We wanted to get some pizza and headed down some streets to the south west of the city. We had some nice dinner and a local beer (Nastro Azzuro) and were pretty surprised to be charged for the table and for service.
After dinner, we went for a bit of a walk before going back to the hotel for an early night.
