we were originally going to Delphi but after hours of searching for bus terminals the previous day and asking several people and checking on the internet.. we could not find the bus or train that takes us there.. so instead we head to Chalkida.. why chalkida you may ask... its a suggestion of travbud who lives in greece maybe.. i dont know.. but after a good breakfast at omonia station.. we head off to catch the train which is  maybe a little over an hours ride from athens.. ( side note; dont put your feet up on the seats) the scenery was nothing amazing... but as we approached the port city of CHalkida then the views start getting better.. the water was nice and blue and it was very tempting to just jump in.. we walked along the peir and took some great shots from there.. then walked the streets... then up the hill towards the old battlements.. there was a church in the center which was unfortunately closed.. but the walls were cool.. then we decided to head back to athens.. we got to the station and we had to run to catch the train.. i was out of breath by the time we got back in the train but the train didnt leave immediately so we probably couldve made it by walking.. back to athens..
