Trip Number one!

This blog will follow my bike trips along routes taken by Roman generals through Greece in the 2nd century BC - as well as other travels in Greece!

I set out on my first trip tomorrow, following the route of Lucius Aemilius Paullus in 168 BC from his landing in Greece until his victory at the Battle of Pydna 15 days later.

Here is the route of my first trip where A is Paullus' landing at Igoumenitsa, B is Delphi, C is Pella, and D is Amphipolis. Pydna is just north of Katerini on the map.

I will do my best to update this daily from the road and hope you enjoy reading it!
