Recalling your history correctly, you deduce that your next course of action was to head towards Egya. Of course, finding passage across the sea might prove troublesome in this day and age. Boats weren't nearly as sturdy or luxurious as they were in the modern day, and the journey by ship would take more than a few days. Yet, it was something required to get what you wanted. After all, this was a journey. And journeys weren't always easy.
The first point of action was heading down the mountain. Of course, this proved a lot easier than when you climbed up the mountain. Then again, knowing the path up made it pretty easy to go on the path down. The conditions gradually mellowed out, from the harsh snowy peaks to the calm forest at the base of the mountain. There you could see a variety of people native to this day and age, preparing for their own journey to meet with the oracle. It was certainly a harsh trip, but people did it for their own reason.
You then look at the path you took to get here. It was a sort of pilgrimage route, as it led both to the oracle and the Temple of Golgades. The path merged into one of the main Grecian trade routes, and led directly towards the port city of Thenia. Named after the Goddess of Knowledge, Thenia was considered the central hub city of the land. The Agora of Thenia was always filled with wonders and commotion, and there were often ferry trips from Thenia to the Isle of Cabrys. After all, the isle was a major source of seafood for the nation. Though, full trips across the sea would be much more harder to find.
You then overhear some of the locals, while not being able to fully understand what they are saying, that you can get the gist of a merchant ship returning to port soon. Ever since the passage of the King of Conquerors, Egya and Greca started to have open trade. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. Though, that required getting back to town and convincing the merchant to let you board.
What do you do?
Big starts way back down the mountain making his way from the harsher conditions near the peak to the relative safety and relief of the surrounding forests. He takes a small break once he is at the base and watches other people prepare for their own journies up to the oracle. He mentally wishes them the same luck he was granted before heading down the path back towards Thenia. Once he makes it back there he would have to find passage to Egya. He didn't have quite a plan but as he got into the city he would start to hear bits of info of a merchant ship and decided that would be his best bet. He didn't have a lot to offer but with his capable pokemon his current plan was to track down this merchant and offer his services for protection on the seas in exchange for being brought to Egya.
