Athens

Birthplace of Democracy, Greece – 2012

Last July 2012 we packed our bags and jumped on a plane bound for Europe. Our first stop was Athens, Greece. The 11.5 hour flight from Singapore with an almost 2 year old baby boy was only broken up by the 7 hour stop over in Doha.

Upon arrival in Athens we were warmly greeted by the 42°C outside temperature. But I didn’t mind, all I could think of was that I was walking in the land where gods and heroes roamed in ancient times. It completely geeks me out I couldn’t stop smiling.

This is madness! Madness!? No! This is… Athens!

Sorry I couldn’t help myself.
