We had another 11am ferry this morning, although the boat was much larger than the one we took to Paros. As we made our way to Athens on the four-hour ferry, I took advantage of the opportunity to catch up on some more reading. About half-way through the trip, my seat mates, Gretchen and Morgan,… Continue reading Day 19: A Final Goodbye in Athens
Paros has caused our trip to take a series of severe turns. First of all, the weather has remained less than ideal. We woke up to rain, again, which shifted everyone’s plans for the Paros BBQ Cruise. Everyone except Kristen, JJ, and I had signed up for it, but because of the rain, it ended… Continue reading Day 18: Paros Chooses Not to Cooperate
This morning was probably the first day of our entire trip that we’ve been so far ahead of schedule. Kristen, Carolina, and I were all up early and down at breakfast with an hour to spare before departing the hotel. Our bus took us back tot he port from which we departed for the sunset… Continue reading Day 17: Everyone has an Off Day, but the World is Still Beautiful. Be Happy.
Thankfully, this morning started off slowly and very relaxing. I woke up around 8:45 from the sun coming through our window. Kristen was still sleeping, so Carolina and I went down for breakfast around 9:15, and by time we got back around 9:45, Kristen was awake. We had already decided that we wanted to start… Continue reading Day 16: Tanlines and Baklava in Santorini

I was a little concerned going through the Athens airport because I worried that they would have an issue with my oil painting, which is in a large tube. Thankfully, nobody seemed to care about it, and it fit nicely in the bin above my head on the… Continue reading Day 15: Sunsets are for Old Souls
Because we had an entire free day in Athens, we were able to sleep in a bit. I was still up at 8:30am, but this was definitely an improvement from waking up consistently between 4:30 and 5:30 am. Kristen and Carolina were still sleeping, so I went downstairs to get and access the wi-fi in… Continue reading Day 14: Artisan Shopping and Traditional Dancing in the Plaka
This morning we were up early to catch a 10 am flight to Athens. Of course, once we arrived, we discovered that our flight was delayed until 11am, so we spent a good chunk of time sitting in the airport. I was fortunate enough to have a window seat, which proved perfect for napping during… Continue reading Day 13: Can I Move to Athens?
