    Athens

    February 6 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    We are in our rented Airbnb apartment we have a week in Athens now, my parents were due to arrive this evening but sadly they will now arrive in the middle of the night well more very early morning, what a nightmare!
    We have done a bit of wandering around getting our bearings seeing the sights from a distance but waiting for our house guests to arrive before we visit Parthenon etc.Read more

    Some Athens sites

    February 8 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Well my parents were due to fly into Athens at 19:30 but due to fog their flight to Gatwick was first delayed then cancelled. Sod’s law, the flights before and after were fine. This meant obviously they missed their flight to Athens. Bryony was able to find another flight but it was from Heathrow and arrived at 03:30 and to quote a famous film ‘what does the 0 stand for, oh my god it’s early’. Thankfully they made it though and after a long lie in we started to explore the city. Here are some of the photosRead more

    Acropolis

    February 10 in Greece ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    I was getting very confused looking at the signs around the city, the signs said Acropolis the tickets were for Parthenon. It took me a while but I have finally figured out that the hill is called the Acropolis and within it is the Parthenon, the Odeon of Herod, and Theatre of Dionysus. They are a very impressive, as John would say ‘pile of ancient rocks’, though not so much of a pile nowadays as a lot of architectural reconstruction has taken place. The Odeon, which is like a small theatre is used in the summer for performances. We also watched the Sunday ‘ changing of the guard’ with the brass band and funny walks and uniforms of tutus and pom-poms.Read more

    Less touristy sites of Athens

    February 9 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We have also seen some of the less popular tourist attractions. We visited Voula’s on the beach front and then Flisvos Marina using the Tram, the marina is full of very very impressive yachts (look up Radiant, it was originally commissioned for Abramovichs rival) well as what appeared to be a historic naval ship. We also met Steve ‘Brody’ who we originally met in Almerimar on his Amel 48, he was headed to Leroy where the boat was resting for the winter before he takes it to Turkey for a refit later in the year. He is still very smitten with the boat and has been around most of the north of the Mediterranean already.
    We saw a Royal Enfield garage. At our lunch stop on the steps in the Anafiotika district we saw this adorable if not very friendly Persian cat.

    Acropolis of Athens

    February 11 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    (1) View from the acropolis ("upper city"/citadel); the propylaea ("before the gates"/entrance) is on the right. (2) White marble columns of the propylaea. (3) The Parthenon, completed in 438 BC, is currently undergoing its fourth set of renovations since it was laid ruin by the Venetians in 1687 (during which time it was under control by the Ottoman Empire and actually converted into a mosque). (4) Odeon of Herodes Atticus. This was my favorite, and if you look closely, you can see someone working on restorations.

    Also, as I write this post from the cafe underneath Bedbox Hostel, I notice that, despite it being 60 degrees and sunny, the HEAT IS ON. Apparently this is "cold."

    Αθήνα (Athens)

    February 9 in Greece ⋅ 🌙 8 °C

    ... luckily I remember a lot of these Greek letters from the ever-so-popular variables in physics equations. (1) Temple of Olympian Zeus (had to sneak a picture through the fence because the park was closed). (2) Random cafes up the hill (in Plaka). (3) Once you get past all the souvenir shops, beggars, and refugees crowding Monastiriki you can get some pretty bad gyros which I can only hope were wrongly advertised as “the best in Athens.”Read more

    Mitten drin...

    October 23, 2018 in Greece ⋅ 🌧 20 °C

    ... Statt nur dabei 😃 nach dem ich zuerst dachte, ach du Schande in welchem Ghetto bin ich hier gelandet. Hat sich im Laufe des schlenderns durch die Stadt gezeigt, was es noch für schöne Ecke gibt. Hab in einem mega schönen Restaurant/Bar Mittag gegessen und hab die Griechen beobachtet 😉

    Athens

    September 24, 2017 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We are here! The best part of 23 hours cooped up in a plane and we made it. Weather is a lovely sunny 27°C, little to no clouds and a gentle breeze. We probably smell but are too excited to care. It's time to shower and get this party started.

    Hydra

    March 16, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ☀️ 90 °F

    Great stop at island of Hydra. Donkey riding, eating warm milk pie ( like custard pie) - fresh out of the oven, petting lots of cats, shopping. Back on the board for a really good buffet lunch. Now on to Poros - about 1 1/2 hr cruise.
