Olivier got a “Priority Pass” before we left Canada and it gives us unlimited lounge access to almost any airport we fly from. We had a connecting flight from Bali to Singapore’s Airport that was in full prep / security mode for Donald Trumps arrive a few days later (The Trump-Kim meeting!)
After landing in Athens at 8am we slept for 45 min…. then ate the largest gyro ever, the size of a small animal. Walked around and then meet up with this guy 👇 George from Calgary for a tour around the night market, and an incredible view of town. Oh.. and ate another, better gyro. 😊
Athen’s is a lot of fun to walk around, you can picture it’s vibrant history IRL making the city an amazing place for the imagination.
We’ve taken a liking to beer tourism. Essentially Olivier finds a bunch of well rated craft beer places and we go out to find them. It usually takes us to areas of town that are out of the tourist realm and as we found the Lazy Dog Pub, we also found out that a free Jazz Festival was playing this week!
We had the best day with George! He took us to places he used to hang out as a kid (he grew up in Athens!). Then we had many greek treats, including black ice cream. Then tried on sparkle clothing, and then drank craft beer!
Thanks George for the pics :)
After we checked out Athen’s Pride parade! It was covered in colour, sparkles and fun music!
