As our time in Athens came to an end, I decided to write a little post about some things I learned, in particular, while in Athens.
- There is more to the City than The Acropolis. We planned a lot of our trip using Trip Advisor Itineraries. Don't forget to check out Vouligmeni Lake and Mount Lycabettus.
- The Parthenon and The Acropolis are two totally different things. Saying they're the same is like saying the Empire State Building is New York City.
- And while we're on the topic of The Acropolis, don't wear flip flops. You'll slip and slide everywhere and look dumb, you also can't go barefoot, just trust me.
- Nothing is too far via the subway.
- If you're going to get sick, don't do it on a Saturday, most pharmacies are closed.
- People are nice and proud of their city. They want you to see the best of it and will give the tips to do so.
- The water is hard, don't forget lotion.
- If someone gives you a rose and says it's free, it's not.
- The place is riddled with graffiti, but not with trash.
At our wedding we had the guests vote on where they thought we should go for our honeymoon, and they voted Greece! So, 11 months later, we are finally making the journey! Turkey and Greece, here we come!
