On the boat to Bari looking to party...

We got to Athens in the morning and then had to take the metro to the main train station. From there we had to take a train to Patra where we would catch another overnight ferry to Bari. The train ride was..fun. The scenery leaving Athens was not so pretty. Actually, it was all pretty sketchy. But the rest of the train ride was better. We got a bit confused at one point when the train stopped and everyone got off..but once we figured out what was going on it was all good. We got to Patra really early and decided to have some food and then go use some internet. We figured we had plenty of time. So we do what we had to do and then go to the main ferry building and the lady like freaks out and says we have to run to our ferry because you're supposed to be there an hour early.
When we got on the ferry we met 4 Canadians that were headed to Rome as well. We hung out with them for the whole night. It was a really long ferry. 6:30pm till like 10am the next day. We ate dinner at the ferry restaurant, I had spaghetti and it was HUGE. Kindergarten Cop was playing on the TV which was sweet. We bought a couple bottles of wine and then went on the deck. They taught us a really fun drinking game called 21. It was awesome, we stayed up pretty late playing that. When we went back to where we put our bags I realized I forgot my bag of chips I bought and I went to get it and someone on the ferry stole it! Who does that...The chairs we slept on were pretty uncomfortable and the room was freezing cold. I ended up sleeping on the cement floor for most of the night as it was better than those stupid chairs.
