On this day in 2008 was our last full day in Greece. We got up early so we could bus across Paros to the port and catch a ferry back to the mainland. Don’t worry; we left plenty of time to get our last fix of Greek pastries. You can see at the back right is another chocolate baklava – so yummy.
It was a very hot boat trip to the mainland and most of the day had passed before we made it to our hotel in Athens. As a note to other Greek tourists: book your hotel in Athens ahead of time. We spent hours looking for a clean hotel with a “reasonable” rate in the city. We still ended up spending twice as much on our room on the mainland as we did on those on the islands. We had a margarita pizza for a late dinner and I totally forgot to take a photograph before it was gobbled up.
Thanks for re-living this trip to Greece with me! I hope you found it as deliciously inspiring as I did! I’ll be back next week with regularly scheduled blogging. Until then, have a delectable weekend!
