First, I really want to thank so many of you for coming out of the woodworks and showing your support. I see the hit counter... and I know people read my blog... but the same people tend to comment (not that I don't appreciate their input!) and it was so nice to hear some new voices.
Second. I think I'm going to keep going with the blog... but circumstances over the next month or so may mean that I'm not posting as regularly.
Third, and most exciting....
I'M GOING TO GREECE!!!!
That's right. The boy and I are taking a nice little vacay at the end of the month (just 16 days away!!!) and the destination, dear friends, is Athens and beyond.
We had been planning on going south (read: SOUTH south, as in Mexico or something) but on a whim Sunday morning, decided to go to Greece instead.
The selling point, being this AMAZING boat tour around Avia Island. It's to be 8 days long, which will give us a couple days in Athens at the end of our trip. It's not a cruise, but rather a trip on a "traditional Greek caique" (which, of course, I've been calling a "cake") that is for about 12-14 people.
I kind of shy away from the GIANT CRUISE idea... it just seems a little pointless to be in a moving hotel when I could be jumping off the side of my traditional Greek cake, to go for a refreshing swim in the clear blue waters.
My dream vacation isn't a sure thing yet... we're waiting to hear from the company to find out if we've secured space. There's only a few spots left on the boat (one of the drawbacks to such a small "cruise") and so we've got our fingers crossed... waiting anxiously until about 11am, when they should know the answer.
Obviously my/our Athens trip won't be a total bust if we don't get to go on this boat trip, but I will be a little disappointed.
But it's not like there aren't other options.
Has anyone out there been to Athens/Greece? Any suggestions? As I said, this was kind of done on a whim... and neither of us know all that much about the must-dos in the area (other than the Parthenon, duh, haha)
WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CRUISE-CAKE HERE I COME!
