Reached Patras after a night's journey. Via Taxi reached Patras bus stand where we booked tickets for Athens. Across coastline, it was a beautiful journey. And It was mathematics all around as P is written as π ; A as @, B as Beta β; it was fun to judge my secondary school knowledgeSpent 3 days in Athens and visited Acropolis, Parthenon, Syntagma Square, Temple of Olympian Zeus and Police station (as my friend lost his wallet and we had to lodge complaint). Europe (Greece, Turkey) with an Asian feeling starts as you sail across Mediterranean as I could see the street vendors culture selling spices etc. across Athens.

Bulgaria is a very important country in the Balkans and - maybe for work or maybe for a cheap airfare - one day you will have the chance to explore Sofia, one of the most beautiful Eastern Europe city, which you probably haven’t considered before.After Athens and Rome, Sofia is the most ancient city in Europe.In the past the city was called Serdica (also Ulpia Serdica), Triaditza and Sredets. Sofia became the capital of Bulgaria in 1879, after the Liberation of the country from 500 years of Turkish enslavement.
