The last part of our trip. Greece. I'll break it up into two different parts. I love Greece. I always have a great time when I go.
This post will focus on Athens & Mykonos.
The fruit in Greece is amazing. And incredibly cheap. Peaches are 2 euros/kilo ($1.20/lb) and this was even a little expensive.
The Acropolis is a must see. It's beautiful up close, but spectacular in the sunset from afar. Also, be aware that if you're there in August, it'll easily be 40-44 degrees Celsius downtown in the sun (105-110 fahrenheit).
I'll end Athens on a shot of the skyline from our apartment. Athens is an incredible city and if you don't see Athens when you go to Greece, then you're really not seeing Greece.
Onwards to Mykonos!
Mykonos is a beautiful island. It's one of the quintessential Greek isles. It's also pretty big on the party atmosphere, so if you're looking for a good (but expensive) time, then Mykonos is the place for you. Even if it's not, Mykonos is an island everyone should see at least once on a trip to the isles.
Next post will be the final summer post and will feature Santorini and a little bit of Spetses (my favorite Greek isle).
