Contiki Big Chill Northern Trek Tour Part 2 – To Athens, Greece
I arrived at 1:30pm. Greece is 7hours ahead of Eastern Standard time but my body was still saying its 6:30am. It was 40 mins to downtown Athens via the metro. My hostel was located in Plaka, the historic center. Just outside hostel doorsteps were restaurants, and shops. After dropping off my bags, I went for a stroll to explore my new surroundings. The tourist souvenirs was similar to the stuff I saw in Spain. By the end of the walk, located the shopping district, Starbucks, McDonalds and the Markets. For Lunch I had a sandwich from a small shop and then I took a little siesta. Today was an easy day with not much planned. I woke up around 9pm had a gyro for dinner and planned out my activities for tomorrow. It would be a long day of walking to see the Acropolis and the rest of the city. By about midnight, I was ready for bed. By the time I went to my room, my roommates were already well asleep. It’s nice not to have party animals for a change. I didn’t want to turn on the light and bother them so I used the flashlight to navigate to my bag for toiletries.
