Greece- Athens & Patra

I waited 43 years for this experience, ticked off the number 1 off my bucket list.  I have wanted to visit this city for so many years.  I wanted to see where my parent where born, the place that gave me by background, my 2nd language and name .  I wanted to see all the things they talked about for so many years.  Here I was, in Greece for the next couple of weeks exploring every bit of the main city.

I got to explore the Acropolis, eat amazing food, see the changing of the guard, visit amazing museums and I would do it all over again and again.  Next year we go back and visit the islands, I want to see every bit of this country.  I want to dance the Zorba, break plates and drink Ouzo.

The best part was meeting my dads family in Patra – I have never met them before.  Talking about old times, my Dad when he was young meeting his uncle and unties for the first time and all of this being enjoyed by my two boys.  They talk about this experience all the time.

Till next year in Summer – can not wait!
