Wanderlust: Athens

Yesterday morning, I dropped my parents off at the airport for a big trip. Their first stop is Athens, Greece followed by Jerusalem, Israel and then Istanbul, Turkey. When I imagine Greece, I usually picture islands like Santorini with white/blue houses and cliffs that offer stunning views of the Mediterranean. But the capital city of Athens has always eluded me too. I would love to marvel at the ancient structures and pay homage to the birthplace of democracy. (Not to mention dine on some fabulous food!)

Oh my gosh. This is a wonderful blog. I want to travel now...and eat that lemon scented bread! Eep!

Just found your blog and it is so cute and inspirational. I found it through your comment on Cup of Jo. If you love LA, you might like Via Los Angeles. It's "Your Little Black Book to the City of Angels."

I'll be checking back here!

That trip your parensta re making sounds more than exciting! I wish I was in their place ^^ Athens looks beautiful but considering the actual political situation I'd rather not visit Greece for now. x
