After our time in Paris which seemed to go by way too fast, we took a flight to Athens, Greece!
After our adventures by taxi, plane, and train, we were pretty tired and ready to get settled into our hotel room. Little did we know we would be carrying our over-packed suitcases up-hill for about eight blocks. The longest eight blocks of my life!
My first impretion of Greece was not great. There was lots of graffiti everywhere, and apparently there's a large stray cat population. But once we got settled into our hotel and started exploring, it was absolutely beautiful. Just like any other big city, there are nice and not so nice areas, but the winding streets lined with cafes and view of the Acroppolis were just stunning.
Our trip to both France and Greece was outstanding. There was more I wish we could've done, but that just means we have an excuse to go back again. Great food, lots of sights, and memories with my mom and sisters - can't beat that.
Speaking of great food, check out a recipe here for a dish we all loved and ate several times in Athens. It is phyllo wrapped feta with sesame seeds and honey. So delicous!
