On our way to Santorini, we stopped by Athens for a few days because Husband wanted to visit the Acropolis. Hiking through the heat and getting a cute wifebeater tanline were so worth the trip to the Parthenon, a temple dedicated to the goddess Athena from 438BC. There is something humbling in feeling finite when surrounded by structures that are thousands of years old.

- Spent all day exploring the temples of Acropolis like the Parthenon and Temple of Athena.
- Left: Having a Flat White at my favorite cafe and bar there, Tailor Made, owned by a guy who has won the barista world championship enough times to explain the incredible coffee experience. Right: Our diet in Greece consisted mostly of gyros, which were cheap and delicious (and stuffed with fries!).
- The Odeon of Herodes Atticus, a theatre located on the slope of the Acropolis.
- Dessert of Greek donuts, loukoumades, drenched in honey covered in nuts.
