Although chocolate’s popularity is growing in China and Japan, there’s still comparatively little chocolate culture in Asia. The Chinese, for example, eat only one bar of chocolate for every 1,000 eaten by the British.

Saturday, 16th June - Sunday, 17th June:

I was initially planning to spend this week simply relaxing around Athens. I decided to actually take a further trip - to two places on the mainland, for this weekend.

I only managed to get a couple of hours sleep due to my last Friday night’s drink session – I got back to the hotel around 4am. Whoops! Anyway, got up at 6.30am so I could freshen myself in time for the coach.

I decided it was easier to take an arranged Coach Tour, was about €161 (coach ride, plus hotel accommodation and entry fees to the various sites) - not too bad at all. Everything would be arranged for me for the weekend at least - I was being lazy!!

We visited Delphi first, and visit the archaeological site and the Museum at Delphi - amazing landscape on the way to Delphi and around the site. Relaxing afternoon and certainly was great to spend time wandering around the site.

We then left for Kalambaka for an overnight stay - and where we were based we had views overlooking the breathtaking Meteora rocks - and landscape (Meteora means "hovering in the air") and the rocks, and monasteries located on the top of some of the rocks certainly make Meteora one of the most spectacular places to visit in Greece!

The next day, we had an early start on the coach to visit the Meteora - managing to visit two of the 8 or so monasteries that existed. We visited Megalo Meteoro (Metamorphisis) Monastery and then Agios Stephanos (St. Stephen) Monastery - both were active monasteries - and I was in awe on the sights in front of me, truly amazing!! You will probably feel the same if you look at the photos I managed to take.

I did miss the company of a special person, but did phone her a couple of times over the weekend. It sounded like she missed me too! I still do not what will happen – probably just end up as close friends.

Anyway, this was an absolutely great trip, albeit slightly tiring!!!

As I arrived back at the hotel, I decided to go to the main restaurant for a quick meal, so I could return to my room, check my e-mails and updates on any events during the weekend (the UK teams were expected to progress one of the issues this weekend!).

Anyway, I ordered my food and wine, I got the wine, but was left waiting for about 25-30mins. After I complained to the restaurant manager, he returned and indicated that there was some kind of “mix-up” in the Kitchen, in short I think this meant that they probably had not received my order!! I was frustrated and annoyed by this!

As I was tied, and had emails to catch-up, I told them I was going back to my room, and wanted them to bring it up. Was told it was no charge – but this means nothing to me when I am on a business trip – with all of my expenses covered! Grrr!! Not a nice way to end the Sunday!
