Drive from Athens to Thessaloniki, Greece

This distance of 500kms was completed in 5hrs approximately. Throughout the journey we were on the highway E75 and we kept paying at toll gates. We drove by the Aegean Sea for some distance. We crossed the well known Olympic beach and could see the yachts all lined up along the shore. From here on patches of dark clouds followed us threatening to pour. But wind God favored us and they were blown off our range of sight. The last pic is from Thessaloniki, Thermaic Gulf, quite crowded in the evening. It seemed as if all tourists had congregated there after hectic sightseeing of the city.
