European Adventure Photo Blog #1…
Paris & Athens
“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on deep and permanent, in the ideas of the living.”
– Miriam Beard
Here it is MID-OCTOBER!!
Well, well, well…it seems I am finally surfacing after going underground for more than a month! Sorry for the delay in sending out a blog. Emily and I have been busy little travel bees!!
Our epic European adventure got off to an epically HOT start in Paris…and I do mean hot! It was 37 degrees Celsius and humid beyond belief. And our hotel did not have air con! ACK! My bad (I booked that one). We lasted one long, sleepless, sweaty night…and promptly moved to a hotel WITH air con. After that, we were laughin’. Literally.
We had a ball in Paris! This was Em’s first time there and she loved it!!
Here are a few snaps…
After Paris we headed to Athens and stayed at a perfect little VRBO (that Em found)! We visited the Acropolis and were wowed yet again by the Parthenon. And we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Acropolis Museum again…spent hours there in the air con. Athens was hot – but not nearly as humid as Paris.
Here are some photos…
After Athens, we headed east to the town of Marathon to stay at a villa with friends for a week. Then we went to the island of Poros…then more island hopping! Wait till you see the next batch of photos!! We have spent nearly 5 weeks in Greece and are now heading to Rome for the Italian chapter of our epic European adventure 🙂
Take care & I hope things are going well with you!
