[We’re back on schedule with my round-the-world warm up posts thanks to my mom’s mobile broadband.]
Today, we’re going to visit Greece and say “Hi!” to all my patron gods and goddesses.

Greece was no. 1 on my list of countries to visit ever since I watched Disney’s Hercules: The Animated Series. That’s why I listed Greece as a must-visit when I planned my RTW.
I will land in Athens after an EasyJet flight from Rome. I plan to spend most of my time in the capital before making my way over land to Istanbul.
I want to visit Acropolis Museum and the other Greek ruins. I will also make a pilgrimage to the Parthenon to visit Athena’s temple.
Apart from the museum and the temple, I’m pretty much plan-less so I will read more on Athens when I travel.
I’m glad I’m going to Athens after the Olympic Games because this means that the public transportation has been upgraded.
I love train rides so I am excited to take the Athens to Thessaloniki route. But I’m kind of disappointed that the overnight train to Turkey has been cancelled.
