Travel Blogs from Athens
We left for Athens straight from our trip to France- from Calais to Stanstead in one swoop.
It was a moonlit night as we flew over Athens which meant we could see a wonderful view of the lit Acropolis.
On landing we caught a taxi (expensive) to the hotel.
We passed the Olympic stadium (interesting- beautiful curvy …
Hello family and friends! We're alive and well in Greece - currently on the beautiful island of Santorini. I think the shock that we are actually here is starting to wear off, but those first few days in Athens were intense and exhausting. But we are adjusting to our new reality - that this is not a vacation, this is our life. And our new life …

They also offered free tea, coffee and wine....no complaints here! The highlight of my stay here was doing the Santorini Bucket List tour with the group. The day started with visits to the famous black sand and red sand beaches and soaking up the sunshine and swimming, then onto Santo ...

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.
