Hi, I’m back!!! I know I promised that I will update you, guys, about Athens but alas, life happened and my ass got extremely busy with work. I’m being a responsible adult, you know? This bitch has bills to pay.
Soooo Athens. I’ll be honest, I can’t remember what we did in Athens (see, bad traveller!) We went to Acropolis of Athens and a really cool bar and that’s about it…. that’s what I remember. Please never allow me to be a travel blogger.
Acropolis is a citadel located above the city of Athens. It’s a World Heritage Site and it’s very breathtaking. It felt weird being there, you know? It’s like wow shit went down here. I was reading about it and found out that the first fortification wall was built in the 13th Century BC. BC. What the fuck. I sound so dumb right now. Of course, I knew that it has been around for a very long time but knowing and realizing are two different things, okay!!! It’s like once you’re there, you get to appreciate that fact. Also, wtf it felt like everything I read about Greek mythology just came to life.
(Warning: lots of pictures ahead)
The highlight of our LET’S SEE IF WE COULD PULL THIS EUROTRIP OFF 2016 trip — Greece.
(In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a shitty traveller. Like 90% of the time, I only know the country where I’m at. I usually don’t have any idea about our itinerary. So please bear with me with all the stuff I’m gonna post about Greece 🤷🏻♀️)
After our short stay in Germany, we flew straight to Greece. We arrived in Athens at around 10PM and had to sleep right after settling in because we’re visiting Santorini (!!!) the next day at 7am. SEVEN. IN. THE. MORNING. And we had to wake up at 5AM. I HATE EVERYONE.
Don’t mention Germany to me. EVER. Just kidding.
We missed our train to Germany and my wallet was not happy about it. We had to buy tickets again, obviously and those tickets were so expensive I could have bought myself a brand new YSL wallet.
We stayed at Frankfurt and had a day trip to Heidelberg. Our first stop in Heidelberg was the castle that was built in 1214. Fun fact: the castle has this arch which, according to our tour guide, was erected overnight. It was a surprise birthday gift from Elector Frederic V to his wife Elisabeth Stuart. MORAL OF THE STORY: GET YOU A GUY WHO CAN BUILD YOU AN ARCH OVERNIGHT. Hahaha! After visiting the castle, we went around the old town which was very beautiful. It felt like we were in a movie.
