TravelPod Member ReviewsFiloxenia Hotel Athens
The outside was the best part. The hotel felt run down, especially the rooms which had NO view (a brick wall and the local cats) and very noisy air con. Hotel position was rather a long way from the old centre of Athens though very convenient for the museum & a very nice square with variety of good restaurants. Breakfast on rooftop was adequate & staff were ok.

Out of the valley and we were back on the main 18 road towards Zabljak. Stopped at a roadside restaurant for lunch about 2pm. Goulash and Corn Porridge, 2 coffees and 2 teas and 2 min water, €20.
... to cross paths with on the way.
I've got the next 3-4 weeks of this trip roughly planned out, which will take me more or less to the halfway point. That will take me through Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Turkey, all of which are going to be even more foreign than what I've experienced thus far. After that, it's all up in the air. That will probably prove the most challenging part of the trip, but we'll tackle that after I've seen pyramids.
Boy! Philosophy was a fascinating thing. Wasn't it?
-----In addition to writing philosophical essays sometimes, I also enjoyed recording quotes - as well as my own thoughts - in tiny journals I called "Books of Philosophy".
-----Over the years, I'd filled up three of these journals. I'd recorded thousands of quotes.
-----I frequently thought of some of these quotes, my favorites. Some had greatly influenced my own thinking. Here were ...
