Athens, Greece – Double decker day 2 couldn’t be more different

Facebook Twitter When I purchased my ticket for the double decker bus tour, I was wondering if I’d even use the second day. What was I gonna do -the very same circuit all over again? But as it all turned out, the second day, while following the very same route, was the exact opposite of the […]

Athens – Syntagma, Plaka, and the Acropolis Museum

Facebook Twitter After spending a month in Athens, I find it a little overwhelming to write about all that we did.
