Classics trip to Greece - Easter 1989
In the second year at school we took a school trip to Greece. We spent 5 days there, most days travelling by coach to more sites and the next hotel. The photos may be a little out of order, but I have given names and locations where I recall them. Places included Athens, Delfi, Olympia, Corinth, and Tolo.

A stunning amphitheatre. I stood at the bottom and called to a friend at the back, who could hear me clearly. The acoustics were amazing.

The sea, as seen from the roof of Hotel Minoa in Tolo. It was crystal clear, although jellyfish made my legs sting terribly when I went paddling, and you could see stripes on my calves where they had touched.

The following year, the same group went on a Classics trip to Italy.
