December was an exciting month for our family as we embarked on our trip to Greece. It was a good break for all of us and a needed time for bonding and close proximity after a year of being apart.
We have also never experienced much of the Mediterranean. Despite reports of its economic downturn and evidence of a struggling nation (more on that in another post), it was a pleasant trip with safe travels, exquisite cuisine, fantastic weather, warm hospitality and excellent travelling company.
Exploring the Acropolis took the whole day due to its size and rich past. It was a really tangible glimpse into Athens’ 9000-year-old history. Before the day ended, we visited a few other landmarks and caught a beautiful sunset. There will be more in the next post, including some shots of the Greek people’s fantastic cuisine.
