Our flight to Santorini was rather uneventful. 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?
Note: haven’t had wi-fi since leaving Rome, using data to upload posts, so more photos will be added once I get wi-fi again. (6.8.17) Today was, all in all, a good day. Kristen and I had more than 5 minutes to eat breakfast, so that definitely put us ahead. We were even the first people… Continue reading Day 12: Art in God’s Country

Breakfast was served between 7-8am, and due to our slow start to the day, we made it down around 7:50–giving us 5 minutes to scarf our food before we had to meet the group in the lobby to depart for the city center. Our… Continue reading Day 11: Walking in the Steps of Ancient Romans
This morning we said goodbye to Florence. There was a slight hang up, since one of the rooms didn’t turn in their key, so we got a later start by about twenty minutes. Thankfully we only had to board a bus–not catch a flight. We had a two hour drive to Orvieto, our lunch stop.… Continue reading Day 10: When in Rome… Don’t Stay in a Room with Cockroaches
Today started off rough. I believe I wrote before about our young roommate, Jessica M., who doesn’t really talk to us unless she needs something. Well, we are officially on day 3 of the tour, and Jessica M. has established the habit of staying out to 3-4 am partying, coming in very loudly, and then… Continue reading Day 9: An Excursion to Cinque Terre. AKA. Perfection.
