December in Athens
On our first of two full days in Athens, Greece a visit to the ancient Acropolis was required. It was a beautiful December day to soak up the incredible remains and incredible views. Our hotel was located in the old town and had a rooftop view of the Acropolis (which, at the time was closed, but one of the night managers gave us the key to sneak up there for a peek!) and a partial view from our room balcony!
The rest of our day was spent walking around the city, soaking up the culture, souvenir shopping, and beginning our journey of Grecian food and wine. We found an amazing restaurant that sat on the hillside and enjoyed a late lunch outdoors of rustic bread, mediterranean dips, gyros of chicken leg, local wine, and coffee. We were so full that we only stopped at another restaurant later for a dessert of baklava and drinks, skipping dinner altogether. It was not the best dessert and drinks; however, as you can tell from the pictures, it was the decor of the place that drew us in- so beautifully decorated!

Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
