Greecing the Skids

As soon as we emerged through the customs doors into the unsecure side of the bustling Athens airport, the heavy scent of smoke hit me as hard as Serena Williams whacks a tennis ball. Ugh, reminiscent of the Prague airport, I thought. I liked the vibe though. People were loud and outgoing. ...

Greekonomics

We woke up at the crack of dawn (actually I woke up at 2am and couldn’t go back to bed), and made a beeline down to the offensively expensive breakfast (at least compared to outside of the hotel) downstairs. We were so famished, we didn’t have the wherewithal to track down a breakfast place that...

Beautiful Santorini

We got to Santorini by Ferry boat. There is a bit of science here. There was a Volcano that erupted a long time ago. Now, the Volcano is under water beside Santorini. The sand is black or red from volcanic ash. Santorini is so pretty. The white buildings look over the sea. They are a long way...

A bit of crete

We only had a bit of time in Crete. We were in the City of Heraklion. Some of it looks like a New City but some of it is old walls and buildings. They aren't ancient ruins like some places. They were built by people that came from Venice. After Crete, we had to say goodbye to our friends we...

The Road to Rhodes

Today we went to the Island of Rhodes. There is a wall all around the old part of the city. It reminded me of Narnia. I looked for the lion or Peter or Susan or Edmund or Lucy from Narnia but I didn't see them. We took a tour in the early morning and then we walked around the old town before...

Being Athenian

Had a fun day checking out everything in Athens. We went to the Acropolis and saw the ruins. It is up really high. I bet my Chicken Sisters wouldn't go up there. We made some new friends up there. The ruins look like a castle but they are really a temple. There are really deep holes where the...

Greece!

Arrived in Greece yesterday. It was my Dad's birthday! We took the Metro from the airport and it was really crowded. Checked into our hotel and then went exploring. We saw the Temple of Zeus and Mom told me stories about Ancient Greece. We had a really nice dinner at our hotel. We looked ...
