Greek Sailing Odyssey Day 0: Ostrava - Galaxidi by Honza Cervenka

The start of the trip was less than ideal.  I was supposed to wake up at 3:30am to catch the 4:30 "Pendolino" train from Ostrava to Prague, but I overslept and woke up at 4:57--classic Honza.  So my dad hastily drove me to the train station to catch the 5:30 train, but then I had to take a taxi in Prague to make it to the airport in time (the driver asked for 1,500 CZK, almost triple of the usual rate--classic Prague--but what can you do when you're in a hurry to catch the plane).

I made it to the terminal at 9:10, just 10 minutes before check-in closed.  My overweight bag was accepted without any trouble, so low-cost airlines aren't always bad.  I rushed through security only to find out that the flight was delayed for an hour.  But, on the bright side, they also changed the itinerary--the plane was supposed to make a stop in Zakinthos and then continue to Patras, but the two were reversed.  Since my destination was Patras, the change in schedule made up for the delay.

Blog Restart & Greece 2013 Travel Diary by Honza Cervenka

With the new design of my website launched, I decided to start blogging again.  Some posts will be about photography, some about music and some about my travels.  

I decided to do a weekly posting about my recent Greek Odyssey through the Aegean sea.  I originally thought of posting my travel diary on tumblr, but it will appear here.  So you have 30-some weeks of regular travel writing to look forward to!  The first post will appear here shortly.

Finally, for those of you who followed my old blog about my life at the United World College of the Adriatic (in Czech only, sorry English folks--try google translate if you wish), you will be pleased to hear that all of the articles were ported over to this platform.  So have a read!

It's good to be back on the blogosphere!
