    Day 9 let's go on a cruise! :-)

    May 26, 2016 in Greece

    I'm not a huge fan of boats to be honest with you but to go on a cruise in Greece is a Opportunity you cannot give up on. Set sail for a new opportunity was a quote that kept on repeating in my head as a reminder to say that every adventure is a moment that cannot be altered but a moment that can be seized. Our adventure started out by visiting three famous islands in Greece and mind you Greece has hundreds so three was just enough. Experiencing these islands and the history behind them shows a new meaning to the word moment.Read more

    Welcome to the Ruins of Nike the famous Greek GOD of ....... I've always been a fan of Greek mythology and the Greek Gods and one thing for sure they kick butt in Kicking Butt. The group and I went to go see the ruins in Acropolis and by golly it is a sight to see but the effort to get there was a true challenge. Plus we had Greek Night it was a real experience.

    Day 3: Athens, Greece

    June 23, 2017 in Greece

    The best two words to describe today: 38 degrees.

    We died of heat, but at least the sights were worth it. We visited the Acropolis and the views of Athens were incredible. Afterwards, we were so hot that we decided to head to Glyfadas beach. It was so nice, however it ended up taking 2 hours to get back as it's impossible to hail a taxi here! We had to use our map and walk an hour to the metro and then metro the rest of the way back. Turned out to be quite the adventure!

    After we got back and showered, we ended up heading out at 10 pm for supper and went to Smiles. We had the best Greek salad, feta, spanakopita, Greek yoghurt and more and it was one of the best and cheapest meals that we ate in Athens.

    While this might be it for Athens, were headed off to Mykonos tomorrow and we're pretty excited (except for the fact that we have to get up at 5:30) 💃

    Day 1: Athens, Greece

    June 21, 2017 in Greece

    Today I learned a few things:

    1. It's hard to find your way around Athens
    2. Bird poop can sting
    3. You can really see Athens in one day
    4. Don't put Euros in the same pocket that you will pull out your cell phone of on numerous occasions throughout the day
    5. Air Transat flight attendants are super friendly while people in Athens don't have much patience

    After sleeping only three hours on the flight, getting lost twice walking to my room (due to hardly any street signs and incorrect directions), having a bird poop on me, getting yelled at or ignored by at least 5 people (but also helped by 2), losing ten euros (not so bad) and finally getting to my room to spend ten minutes trying (unsuccessfully) to open the door, I met Daniel and Jennifer. Thanks to them for saving my back (literally) and opening the door to the apartment that we're sharing. Turns out they're from Montreal too and they offered for me to join them tomorrow so I'll be third wheeling on their day to the beach and market (they are so nice). On another positive note, I ate my first authentic gyros pita tonight (it did not disappoint) and the Airbnb is actually really nice!Read more

    Day 2: Athens, Greece

    June 22, 2017 in Greece

    Vougliameni beach is really nice. Daniel, Jennifer and I took the bus there and we weren't disappointed. As they brought goggles, we were able to see hundreds of fish that were swimming with us! And the water was beautiful.

    Afterwards, we went to the market and bought some fresh strawberries and cherries, had fresh orange juice, and bought some souvenirs. We were supposed to eat them tonight, but we got back too late as we went to meet Zoe and Alex at the bus stop for 11:30 p.m. Turns out they got off at midnight and they walked right past without me even noticing. We took a taxi back at 12:30 a.m. (or shall I say the third taxi) and ended up getting there at the same time so it worked out. When it came to getting a taxi, the first two preferred Greek fares than listening to us telling them where we had to go (oh well).

    Before we went to the bus stop, we went to a mall which has a lot of the same stores we have back home: Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Zara, Claire's and more. The mall was super modern (unlike the rest of Athens) and it was a nice change! We also went to a nice restaurant near the Acropolis for dinner and Daniel got hussled by a ten year old. He came up offering flowers with puppy dog eyes so Daniel asked him for one, which was three Euros, and gave him five Euros expecting to get change. The kid smiled, said no change, threw down an extra flower and left. It was actually really funny and I got a nice flower out of it (thanks kid).

    Now my buddies have arrived and can't wait to see the Acropolis tomorrow. Sad to see Daniel and Jennifer go, but I'm happy I got to meet them and I'm so grateful for their kindness. Wishing them a safe flight home!
