This year for the winter holidays I traveled to Athens, Greece to meet my mother and brother for a vacation. Before this I had not seen either since the summer – between that and the weather in Moldova, I was very excited to arrive in Athens.
Traveling through Athens, seeing the historic sites and enjoying being reminded of my childhood obsession with Greek mythology, sitting in cafes – enjoying tzakiki sauce, coffee and people watching and mostly catching up with my family was amazing.
On our last full day together, we took a boat trip to three of the Greek Islands. They were beautiful and the time traveling there and there was amazing.
