Flying Home for Christmas

I’m typing this from Athens International Airport, anxiously waiting for my flight to Amsterdam. Apparently it’s kinda windy in the Netherlands, because my flight just got delayed by an hour.

No need sweating it now, it’s quite literally out of my control. So I ordered a beer, put on Blank Panther and that takes us to right here, right now: A little table, a comfortable (!) chair and hours of time before my holiday officially begins.

Turns out Athens is just like every other modern city. Packed with high rise buildings and a history that’s all but forgotten by her citizens.

Yet I fell in love. With Athens. With Greece. With her history and her modern mindset. Nine months isn’t enough to see all of her beauty, but I’d like to share what I’ve seen so far!
