What I loved about Delphi

The short answer is everything! The only thing I didn’t like was that we were there for a day trip instead of staying a couple of days. Getting to Delphi from Athens: Day trip tours from Athens can be rather pricey. When we were looking, prices started at €60 per person. If you would prefer…

10 things to do in Athens

I’ve been thinking about doing a ‘top 10’ list, or similar, for awhile now, and since I’ve had a Greece theme lately I’ll start there. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about Athens, so these are in no particular order. As I’ve said in a previous post I only spent 3 days in Athens out…
