Who goes on their honeymoon and gets the flu?! WE DO. As BHW was just recovering from the stomach flu, I decided it was a good time to take it off his hands. My lovely day started at 2AM, getting sick. This whole shindig lasted until 9AM and we got very little sleep. BHW was, of course, an amazing support, running around Athens looking for a pharmacy that was open. Unfortunately, there were none. Our host offered to schedule a doctor to come visit our apartment, but it was a little too pricey, so I just stuck with laying in bed and drinking a lot of water.
I was feeling pretty crummy about 'wasting' our day, we had so much planned to do! I guess there is always tomorrow though. I laid in bed until around 1PM, drinking water slowly and eating plain toast.. a Greek delicacy.. NOT. Around then I was sick of sitting in bed and was determined to do something off our days plan. I got ready slowly and we started to head towards Ancient Agora. The walk probably took 3 times as long as it should have, I was slowww movin'. By the time we got there I was in no shape to see the ruins. I felt so badly about not being able to stay out with BHW but he assured me it was A-OK. We went back home and I crawled in bed for another few hours. It had been quite a while since I had gotten sick so I convinced BHW that we should try to go out again.
I was really wanting to reach the top of Mt. Lycabettus, the highest point in Athens, for sunset. We took the Metro as much as possible to avoid having to make me walk here, there, and everywhere. The last Metro stop ended at the base of a HUGE mountain. Who would have guessed? haha. I immediately started getting nauseous, no way was I making it up there. As slow as a turtle, I made my way up the hundreds of stairs to the Tram that would take us the rest of the way up the mountain. We reached the top and it was gorgeous, and windy. We stayed up on the mountain until the sun had set and took the tram back down. Now it was just a downhill walk to the Metro and then we were home!
I'm well aware that the best way to get better is to NOT go climb mountains, but, I couldn't waste a whole day in Greece! Eating soup for dinner and hoping to be 100% for tomorrow, maybe then we'll finally get to the thermal lake!
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!
