Next step is a bus ride to the docks and then a long ferry ride to Naxos. I should be in Naxos in about nine hours though so I’m really excited about that!
Travel has been wondrously smooth so far (I don’t want to jinx it!) Let’s see… I trained from New Haven to Newark NJ and then flew to Montreal. From Montreal I flew through the night and landed in Paris the next morning. During my 12 hour layover I went into the city, had an extremely exciting meeting with a future collaborator and then walked several miles around the area and to Notre Dame; it was a beautiful day! (Pictures and details of all of that soon, I just want to post a quick update). Then it was another nighttime flight from Paris to Athens where I’m currently enjoying a bit of free internet.
I haven’t really slept more than about an hour in all of that so I’m starting to really feel the wear and tear. I’m hoping for a bit of shut eye on the ferry and if not, definitely when I get to Naxos. Sometime soon though I will update you with stories and pictures from Paris.
Thanks for all the well-wishes on the travel front. I appreciate it!
More soon from Naxos!
