It is our second day in Athens and we’ve decided that’s just enough. While we planned to spend 3 nights here, we can’t help but make our way to the ocean and take advantage of the beautiful sun and heat that Greece offers. Although it is not my first time seeing the sights of Athens, they are just as spectacular and breath-taking now. The Parthenon and its surrounding structures are found atop the Acropolis, an immense elevation that is the centre of this vast city. What makes the city’s residents and each of its visitors ponder, is how its builders were able to create these structures without the help of machinery in 3,000 B.C. It is a mystery that adds such intrigue to an already grandiose landmark.
We’re off to the island of Crete tomorrow for beach camping, vespa riding and plenty of wading in the ocean. For now, here are some highlights from our time in Athens.
