Wow, I love your "taking us along" on your Grecian adventure. You sure covered a lot on your first day in Athens!!! Thank you for sharing.

I'm so glad you have a little terrace to blog and watch the sites... a travel must.
Wear your sunscreen!

Dear Jerry, Thank you so much for writing while you are in Greece. I LOVE it...every single word and photo...this is the next best thing to actually being there right now. You've made my morning. Have a wonderful day. The food, the food...it looks wonderful. I can only imagine what is coming next.


Sounds delightful so far. I guess you are getting up early to blog. I can just see Paul impatiently standing over your shoulder saying, "Let's GO!"

Keep writing! We all need a vacation!

Photo of the little cheese pies?

Hi Jerry, it sounds like you are fully in the flow of living life in Athens. I really loved reading about all the great things you've seen so far and experienced. I am a big fan of the Olympics and loved seeing the arena. All of your photos and your descriptions are so wonderful to read.

Thank you so much for sharing your trip with us. Keep on having fun!


I'm so glad you're enjoying yourselves. Glad and jealous.(smile) thanks for going to all the trouble to shre with us.


Thank you, Jerry, for letting us share your Greek adventures.

Keep those posts coming!

Jerry, you and Paul must have been exhausted -- what an interesting day! I love the photos -- the Parliament building really does look like more like a Bavarian palace than anything else. And 400 pleats in the guards' skirts is amazing, that's certainly one way to remember national history!

Cheese pies sound so good, the food must be fantastic.

It sounds like a week in Athens won't be nearly enough time!


It has been a wonderful start to our relaxing vacation in Athens. I know if I only had a day in the city I'd likely have a different perspective.

Sandi - the sunscreen is in the bag every day now!

It is amazing how strong the sun is at noon. We'll likely notice it today at the acropolis.

Palma - I shall do more research on the cheese pies just for you!Take more pics too.

Sandra - there is a part of me that is already thinking we need more time here!

I think it might be time to go and wake Paul up . . .


Great read and wonderful photos! The photo of the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior and the two soldiers is my favorite. Interesting story about the pleats. Looks like you had a very busy day. Is Athens difficult to navigate (for someone like me that constantly is lost?)


Sounds like an absolutely heavenly day. Congrats on not getting lost...I mean, what a bit of good luck that it just so happened you didn't get lost as could easily happen! You make Athens come alive for us, thank you :)


Girasoli - I wouldn't say that it is easy. Imagine a rabbit warren of streets, some of the small ones not named, some with English (the main ones) others with just Greek. Happily we're not far off fo the main 'drag' so it isn't a challenge.

Anne - there were a few times I was worried! LOL
