... zebras but also lions, 20 hyenas, black-backed jackals and golden-backed jackals. A jackal is a jackal but Lewys will correct you and tell you the differences. Lewys and Nina love to research and find differences in the animals we see. The following day we drive around lake Manyara which is different than the other parks. You see more birds there and less mammals although we see a herd of giraffes which is very nice with the lake in the background. That ends our Tanzanian safari ...

... flooded into a train car shouting in excitement. Only a short ride to our stop and came right out In front of the parliament building just in time to see the changing of the guard. These guys wear skirts and shoes with Pom poms on them and kick there legs up and hold them there and you think they're going to fall over, pretty cool thing to see. We went on a short walking tour of Athens for an hour or so just seeing a couple of spots and then it was off to a ...

... not greek found our way to the hotel. We ate across the street at Smileys so we wouldn't get lost again and met a traveling musician who only played oldies American songs. The
Polish girl there tried to pawn her junk off on us...It was some weird broken light up butterfly. It was a strange bunch. The owner told us of his travels around America which could bore anyone to tears.

The next day we were able to find an easy route to a hop on ...

After our tour of ancient Corinth, we returned to Athens for one more afternoon of sightseeing. We ended our two week adventure with a tour of the Acropolis, including the Parthenon.

The view from the Acropolis is indescribable. It was slightly colder and windier than what we had been experiencing, but well worth it. The walk up to the top was ...

Get Her to the Greek

... to Andreas. As it was with Athens, Andreas and I didn’t choose each other. We fell into each other’s laps as forum siblings in YPO back in 2009. Since then he has become an integral part of my life and an incredible friend. Every step of the way since that fateful day I woke up on my 30th birthday and decided that everything in my life had to change, he has been there. He has been there sometimes in a lovely and warm and supportive way but, more ...

    We found this hotel that fit our budget but after booking were scared after reading many reviews that made it out to be the worst place in the world. After contacting the hotel owner (Mike) I was reassured that my family would be safe, clean and cool (our criteria).

    I told my family we should try it one night and then if necessary we will move for the other 4 nights. To our surprise the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen were spotless. The rooms were safe and the building is controlled by CCTV. We were not the only ones that found Athens House Hostel acceptable - 3 nights in the row I found 4-6 people sleeping in the lobby when I got up at 5am to write. Rooms were full, people friendly and helpful.

    We also liked the fact that we could walk to all the sites, stores and restaurants.

    This is the best priced, safest, cleanest centrally located hotel/hostel you can find in Athens!!

    We were glad to have included this for 5 days of our Around the World in 80 Days trip!
