Start Skyros 2020
Skyros 2020 · 3. October 2020
The time has come, we will meet at 03:45 in front of the Franziskuszentrum in Weinfelden. The last little things like the mask and t-shirts are distributed. With two minibuses we drive over the empty highway. Arrived at the airport we check in our luggage. It is already busy for five o’clock in the morning. Through customs and with a slight delay we take off. We enjoy a fairly quiet flight with sunrise.
Arrived in Athens the bus driver is already waiting for us. We took the bus to a ferry for lunch. We had lunch in a small restaurant. After lunch we drove to the ferry that goes to Skyros. Before the crossing we have a little time to explore the area.
If you now let your gaze wander over the ferry, you can see that the early rising and the long journey, the whole troop a little strained. Some stroll on the deck and enjoy the view, some watch a movie and a few have sat down to sleep in the comfortable couches. The latter are abruptly wrenched from their dreams by Müri, who tells them about the arrival in the harbor and doesn’t want them to miss this sight. From the harbor we first go briefly to our accommodation, where the rooms are divided.
It is to be only a short stop, as the mayor has invited us to dinner. Plenty of plates of different dishes are dished up so that no one will go to bed with a growling stomach today.
