1. Re: airport journey to parga

Are you driving a hire car or doing a coach transfer?

Roads are fairly straight but does go up and down at times... look on Google maps and plot a route.

Doesn't sitting at the front make a difference for travel sickness? Seeing where you are going helps a lot.

The road from the airport, as already stated, is quite straight with very little undulation. Take a look at Google Maps directions from Aktion Airport to Parga (satellite) and you will see that the road (E55) is fairly straight and follows fairly close to the coast. Considering that the coastline from Preveza to the turning for Parga is virtually unbroken sandy beach it gives some indication of what it's like. From the Parga turning into Parga (10 klms) the road is more bendy but no severe gradients or switchback bends.

I would also reiterate what rtj70 has suggested with front seat travelling.

I suffer terribly with travel sickness so I sympathise. After making this journey many times, I have only once felt ill on the coach but I think that was after a full days sun.

Our daughter tends to suffer from travel sickness in the UK and has been really bad when we went to Stoupa, but I must say she has always been ok on the Preveza - Parga run. Although I think it helps when she has her music to take her mind off it.

I agree about sitting to the front/middle of the coach. Certainy don't sit behind the rear wheels, as when you go round bends there will be more movement, and also you look out of the window and can't see any road! This happened to us on a transfer through the mountains in Samos, and by the time we got to the airport Mrs Steve was a very pale colour - underneath the tan of course!

I agree, try to sit in the middle of the coach and limit your sons chocolate and fizzy drinks beforehand, and don't forget those plastic bags, just in case

the bus journey in relation to Samos and Stoupa (awful) is a relatively pleasant one, you should be fine. we always take a small battery powered hand held fan for our 10yr old as she suffers from travel sickness and this seems to help alot too.
