Day 1 Greece (July 2) Today I arrived in Athens!! I had an early morning flight from London, and I barely slept the night before. Ugh. At least I was in a nice hotel with a comfy bed!! My first friend I met on my travels was a man named Mr Meeghs who was staying at the same hotel as me. He is 78, his wife died two years ago and he's just starting …

We decided to take a walking tour of Athens to see all of the sites by foot. Our tour was led by an archaeologist who had an immense amount of knowledge about all of ancient Athens and Greece in general. He took us by all of the main sites in the city and explained their history and relevance to modern times. I enjoyed that he spent a long time …

Ahh Athens. I won't lie, it was nice to get out of Rome. Since we arrived to Athens fairly early, we decided to wander around. The first thing that caught our eye was Hadrian's Arch. It was just sort of sitting there right next to the main road. It was erected to honor Emperor Hadrian for all of his good works in Athens.

The day began horribly as we woke from very little sleep, luckily we weren't too hung over as the drink prices at the club had curbed our efforts. After taking full advantage of the 12pm checkout we slowly made our way down to the port. We once again were catching the blue star ferry to Athens for 40 euro. It was nice enough, but we tried without …

    Cool bar too - if Mr and Mrs B were 20 years younger and had no little B's we would have spent a few hours there! But Sprite, ice tea and the complementary Ouzo was great too!

    Great location, helpful staff, good bed and breaky included - can't go wrong! The price at 15.00 only resembles where you are..Athens! As the facilities are not top notch. Older crew generally when we were there...not sure if this is usual or just in off season..

    Enjoyed our stay at Backpackers. Place was clean, easy and friendly. The showers sucked (stayed there twice, two different rooms, sucked both times) but everyone in the shared rooms and in the roof top bar were extremely friendly. there was a taxi strike (big surprise) and the staff at backpacjers had organized to drive a bunch of us to the port to catch our ferry oin the morning. Totally made up for the shitty showers. Great location too. Recommended for sure.
