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.

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.

Breakfast on rooftop was adequate & staff were ok.
