My girlfriend and I recently spent a week in Greece. Our original plan was to spend a week on the island of Corfu, part of the Ionian Islands off the Western coast.
We enjoyed a couple of relaxing beach days after we arrived:
And had some excellent food and Greek wine:
And met some friendly stray dogs:
But then this happened:
So we hopped on a plane to Athens for a few days. While there, we explored the Acropolis:
Visited the Temple of Poseidon:
Saw this strikingly T-Rex-like dog:
Sat in the king and queen thrones at the original Olympic stadium:
And visited Brettos, the oldest distillery in Athens.
We flew back to Corfu for a day to find that the sun had returned, and enjoyed a final day on the beach before our flight back home:
Greece was beautiful, the food was excellent, and the people were so friendly and welcoming. We hope to go back soon.
