Little Happenings w. 4

My week of little happenings in photos a.k.a. a little BTS of the week so far exploring Greece. :)

^^ The minute we arrived at the hotel our first day in Athens, jetlag hit Charles hard.

^^ First selfie of the trip in front of the Parthenon. Charles packed the selfie stick and we’ve been taking alot of selfies so far.

^^ Flowers in bloom with my tour group in the background as we explored the grounds of the original Olympic stadium in Olympia.

^^ Breakfast with a view of the Acropolis in the background from our hotel’s rooftop restaurant.

^^ Typical public bathroom situation so far in Greece = Rule #1: Don’t throw the toilet paper in the toilet. Gotta throw it in the trash next to the toilet.

^^ Views from our tour bus as we traveled from Olympia to Delphi.

^^ That moment when Charles talked me into climbing on a cliff ledge to take a pic while on the island of Poros… I’m scared of heights hence my death grip on Charles’s arm lol.

^^ When we travel, Charles and I make a point to drink local wine and beer. Everything we’ve tried so far in Greece has been really good.

^^ My awesome tour group = a great mix of people ranging from 18-87.

Currently working on this post from my phone while on the tour bus, on our way to Kalambaka (so please excuse any grammatical errors). I wasn’t sure if I would be able to get today’s post up but thankfully our bus’s wi-fi is going strong.

Working as a tour leader this past week has been such a great learning/travel experience. To be responsible of 28 people in making sure we travel from city to city on time and in one piece is definitely WORK. But so far, it’s been fun work. A few roadbumps along the way but overall, everyone is in good spirits and enjoying their time in Greece.

Charles has been my “sous chef” in the sense that he’s been a rock of support in moments when I’ve needed help responding to various logistical situations. I’m just so happy that he was able to come along and experience this trip with me.

With that said, we have 2 more days in Greece and then after transporting our tour group to the airport to fly back to the U.S., Charles and I will deviate and make our way to Jordan.

So far, so good. So thankful.

Can’t wait to share more photos when we get back. :)

  • Ahhh this is so awesome! Thanks for this little sneak peek into the photos and travel diary that I’m sure is to come! Greece looks absolutely beautiful, but I had no doubts. Keep having safe travels y’all!

    • Thanks mama! Greece was such a beautiful country. Still processing everything we did on our trip but can’t wait to share the recaps with you soon! xo

  • Loving these little happenings posts especially coming from another country! So glad you guys are enjoying yourselves and have a great time. Definitely keep having safe travels through out your trip!

    • Yay! I’m so glad you’re liking this weekly series! It feels great to be able to just share for sharing sake. These post literally take me 10-15 minutes to put together which is so refreshing compared to me spending hours on my big travel posts. It kind of balances everything out :)

  • Looks beautiful! I had 100 degree days when I visited Athens so everything wasn’t as clear and colorful! Can’t wait to see what’s next :-)

    • Oh wow! 100 degree days! I can’t even imagine visiting Athens in that kind of heat. If you ever have a chance, I recommend visiting in the Spring – the weather was comfortable and the city wasn’t all that crowded :)

  • the flowers in bloom are SO gorgeous!

    • Aren’t they?! Greece in the spring was so pretty to behold. :)

  • We’re going to Greece for our honeymoon and I am so excited! I want to go to Delphi, but I’m not sure that it will fit into the schedule. Hopefully. Also, that Mythos beer is great! They’ve got it at this cute little greek place in Old Town Alexandria. We went there for restaurant week and loved it :)

    • Hey Sarah! Ahhhh you’re gonna love Greece especially for your honeymoon = so romantic! What’s that name of the Greek restaurant in Old Town? Charles and I live in Arlington which isn’t too far away – we would LOVE to visit for dinner when the “greek cuisine craving” strikes haha. :) xo
