Ok, so my title is a bit bland but so will this entry until I decide which trip logger to keep up with.
Athens is a great tourist town as many know. It almost always tops lists for most visited cities in the world. The town is fairly cheap and easy to navigate. The people are friendly. The sites are awe-inspiring and historical.
... a little shaded with trees and there were ruins everywhere. There were certain areas where they were building is back up which was pretty cool. The newly built up area was a different color so you could tell the difference but it gave you a better idea of what exactly you were looking at. We walked past a couple of ruins on our way up to the Parthenon. At one point there was a little kid running around the "Do Not Enter" signs with their parents not seeming ...
... 8217;ve got saddles. The kids enjoy it although Lewys and Nina are intimidated by the height. After the pyramids, we visit the sphinx then tombs at Sahkara followed by a statue at Memphis. It’s all amazing stuff which I won’t attempt to describe as it’s best to read books about them. It doesn’t take long to visit those sights which are further away from Giza. We drive past villages and any green patch results from irragation canals from the Nile, the rest is ...
We spent the morning organising ferries to and from the greek islands. We will be travelling first to santorini island, then to crete (the big island) and then back to grotty athens. The ferries are very expensive and are not covered by our Eurail pass. The total cost for all three ferry trips came to a whopping €250!!! That is going to cut into our budget a bit.

... good wholesome prices. Meat, meat, and more meat. That became our staple dinner. What type of meat is it? Sometimes it’s better not to ask. It all tastes good. It’s all on a big platter.

This hotel was great. It is centrally located, near to tourist spots and areas to buy less expensive souvenirs, and centrally located. It is easy to get to and from the airport via train or bus as well.
The price was extremely reasonable (400 USD for 7 nights in February...off peak).
The wifi signal in my room could have been better but with one router per floor (8 + breakfast floor and lobby) the signal was strong once it stabilized. You're on vacation so unless there's an urgent work matter, the wifi should only be necessary for planning that day's activities really anyway.
Hotel staff was very nice. No disturbances of note. Guests seemed to be courteous and mature.
I would stay again.
