Day 40 (Greece): rest day in Thessaloniki

today’s distance: 0km
total distance: 3112km
riding time: 0km

It was a slow day after a long night out. We eventually found our way around the city, having hunted down the heavenly bougatsa (pastry filled with cream, good stuff!!!). Then we made our way to the hills, taking a look at the old city, the Jewish quarter and back down. Plato had the good idea to head to a specialty store in some mall outside the city and what we tasted there was simply amazing. A large choice of cheeses and meats and the staff was more than happy to let us try all of what they had. When they heard what I was up to we soon had a conversation going.

I couldn’t leave without getting some stuff, sundried tomatoes, a couple of cheeses. I really would have liked to stay there for the night, camp out in the store … The lady we talked knew pretty much where everything was made and came from, which island had the best milk for this and that. It was what food can be like I suppose.


More food goodness in the city and a leisurely night rounded up the day.
