Finally here it is, my first blog post about Athens (yay for a new TRAVEL post!). There were so many photos made and sorting them out was quit a big job. But here is the first selection. Writing this post makes me dreaming about when we were still there. As you may or may not know: Paul gave me a suprise city trip that led us to the capital city of Greece. I really had no clue that this was going to be our stay for the coming three days, or actually every thought about Athens. I know the city, mostly, from Sisi, part 3. Anyone who shares my love for the old Sisi pictures?
But I'm glad I got to know Athens more. These photographs are from our first day there and that explains the many photos of the acropolis. After a climb of 156 meters we reached the acropolis, which means in Greek: the highest point of the city. The location is very steep and that makes the most amazing view, that is what catches your eye first when you reach the top. The acropolis is actually a big rock where the old Greeks build their amazing architecture on, and because of that rock you can walk it round and see the view over the entire city everywhere. Just like you can see the acropolis from on the city (almost) everywhere. Then after we realised the pretty view we walked further to the Parthenon and the other Greek buildings. Those were all so impressive, they are still so well maintained, you can easily dream a little about how life was way back then.
The rest of the day we wandered around the city, explored the streets, had some really good pita's and enjoyed the sun and just had a good time. I really love this first selection, the colours of Athens are so lovely. There will definitely be an Athens part 2, and maybe a part 3, oh and some outfit photos from there, so stay tuned for those.
For now: What do you think of these new travel photographs? Have you every been to Athens?
