I’m not sure what I expected from my first ever trip to Athens. Of course I knew it had the ancient sites, and that the Olympics there had induced a rebuilding programme, and that they were fairly sore about Lord Elgin. But apart from that I really only saw the trip as a get-together with my (not-so) old school friends, with the added bonus of a little bit of late autumn sunshine.
Week before the trip, however, I’d abandoned all hope of wandering around the ruins, or getting a tan: the weather men were forecasting heavy rain for Athens. I unpacked my flip-flops and instead began to look forward to just the good food, a few drinks and plenty of in-hotel-natter with my friends.

I travelled to Greece many years ago and it is my dream to return with my husband…maybe this winter…I LOVED your post….thanks, …I needed that!
So glad you had a good time!
What a great balcony with a view! And I loved your picture of the "development potential" reflected in the modern glass building. Very clever!
Must be nice to travel to Athens like that. We did it on a shoestring many years ago and we had a view of cockroaches instead of the Acropolis. 🙂
