MY BEDSIDE TABLE:
OUT OF PRINT: Always, when you leave the travel takes your steeps, it will rewarded you with the biggest surprise. I knew that there were notices about an ancient theatre in a place called Thebae Phthiotides, but I did not know well the place it was and thought it was not excavated yet, so I supposed it was only a literary notice. When I was driving from Demetrias ancient theatre, near Volos, to Delphi, I suddenly see, like a miracle, a sign on a dirt road adjacent to the main road that said “to the ancient theatre”...!!!! Oh my Gods , you put that sign for me... I take that road, left the car and started very excited to the theatre place... sometimes the journey hides unimaginable secrets!!!!
