Day 1: theworldoffroad kicks off from Athens!

April 25, 2007 akistemp

A common working day for anybody else, is the starting day of our dream. And it’s really special

Time is 22:04 and we are at the Ionian sea, traveling to Italy on the Superfast Ferry XI. It was around 9 am this morning that we started our trip from Thanos Iliopoulos home at Maroussi. Thanos is the photographer of 4Wheels and best friend.

After we saluted him nd his mother, Mrs. Kitsa, we went to Conergy to fit – finally – our fridge. But we found out there was no space in the car for it! After we headed to Dobby design – to fit the last two stickers on our car – for STR8 perfume and “Ethniki” Insurance – and right after we passed from Best Radio 92.6 FM. We talked with Mrs. Lina about the details of our collaboration (every Monday morning and Friday noon we will be talking live) we spoke live at Gregory Psarianos’ program and after we went to Sarantis S.A., the company that produces STR8 and sponsors us. We saluted our friend Niki Siropoulou and her partners and after we headed to Tetrakinisi MAG, to say goodbye to our friends John and Konstantina Athanasiou. The guys made a 7 page article for us in their magazine! The final meeting was at Gabletsas Roverland where we had to receive two diesel filters and say goodbye to the people who transformed a green Discovery3 in our Karibu, our beloved car. Thanks, John, Spyros, George, Panos, Athina…

Now it’s 22:26 and our car is still traveling to Italy. From the Superfast XI, good night everybody!_V.Netu
