We made it!

We just received good news, our one wayward suitcase made it to the hotel….with that our arrival in Athens is complete.

Our travel to Greece was a little bumpier than expected with changed flights and long layovers and a late night arrival in Athens.  However, along the way we met some helpful people that made things work out…our British Airways agent who worked through our ticket woes and our bus driver Dimitrios who picked us up at the airport at 1:45AM and the Hotel Parthenon staff that got us quickly settled in our rooms.

The long travel did not slow us down and today we started off with a visit to the Acropolis and the Parthenon.  It was a beautiful day…blue skies and 60 degrees. Just what we needed to renew us. (Nothing like walking 7.5 miles to get the travel dust off!)

We ended the evening with dinner at God’s Restaurant.

First Greek meal - Tatzki, Greek salad and lots of bread!
