Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 2 – Athens

A few days to relax and roam Athens before our road trip. Took a bike with Mitsos and we drove a bit in the centre.

Athens Graffiti

I love the Graffiti in Athens. It is everywhere and there so many great pieces all over the place.

A visit at the Flisvos Marina

Flisvos Marina
Flisvos Marina – something different from the usual Athens walks. 303 stern-to berths and half of them for super yachts.

The Samurai
The Samurai was once a record-breaking racer and was later refitted as a super yacht. Before it was rebuilt the boat was known as the Mari-Cha IV. The 42.4-metre schooner’s sole purpose was to set speed and distance records. She broke the transatlantic record and the longest distance in 24 hours. She also won the Rolex Transatlantic Challenge, broke the Guadeloupe to Antigua record and the Hawaii Pacific Ocean record!

Al Salamah
The Al Salamah. Build in 1999 with a makeover in 2009. A crew of 96 takes care of up to 40 guests.

Al Salamah
The Crown Prince of Bahrain is the owner of the yacht Al Salamah. Al Salamah was built by Lurssen in Germany for the late Prince Sultan of Saudi Arabia.

Al Salamah
If you want to park a boat like this here for a year it will set you back a bit over 1 Million €. More information on the yacht: Wikipedia

Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 1 – Athens

Mitsos has some friends from Hamburg. They have the car from Germany on the island and are happy when somebody drives it back to Germany again. This year it worked well with my schedule. I took a flight down to Athens and we drove 3 weeks back to Stuttgart.

The first step is of course: A plane to Athens!
