Post 1 of 7
In 1970, in my father’s Landrover (see below), on a month-long journey en route for a month on Skiathos, six university friends (Rex, Ian, Martin, Jan, Elaine and I) arrived at the gates of Delphi, to find the site closed. Ever since I have longed to try again.
Now, 50 years later, Elaine and I finally made it, courtesy of a ‘The Glory That Was Greece’ tour organised by Travel Editions, led by Jeremy Paterson. The coronavirus contagion sweeping the world severely disrupted – and ultimately truncated – the trip, but the net result was glorious. Some glimpses are afforded in this short series of six posts.
