I’m happy that it’s Monday and I can finally say ” Next week I’ll be in Greece!” Yay! With so much happening around, I haven’t really been as excited as I usually would be. Now thinking about it, I wonder if it’s because the weather has been cooler in Toronto than most years, and I haven’t been feeling that summertime vibe?
Whatever the case, I am super excited that I am going to Ellada ( Greece in Greek!) It’s been almost two years since I went last, which was for an entire month in August of 2012. Time is funny, sometimes moments feel like yesterday, but so long ago at the same time…. Hmmm…. Well, this time I’m going for 16 days starting with flying to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city and returning to Toronto from Athens, the capital. With a limited amount of time, I’m trying to do a little bit of everything, which when visiting a country like Greece, can be hard! So many places, and not enough time!
My Itinerary is going something like this:
June 12 – Fly to Thessaloniki via Paris with Air Canada and then Aegean Airlines.
June 13 – Land in Thessaloniki, Macedonia Airport – Go straight to Kozani – 2 hours away
June 14 – Attends my cousin’s big fat Greek wedding! Apparently there will be 400 or 450 from what the bride told me!
June 15 – Kozani – Family
June 16 – Gallivanting around Thessaloniki.
June 17 – More Thessaloniki, and if I can a swim in Halkidiki, who knows?
June 18 – Fly to Skyros Island via Athens! Wooooo! This is where I spent some wonderful moments in Greece last year!
June 18 – 22 Drink Frappe, Fredo, or Ouzo with the Aegean Sea as my view. Have fun with Maria! Flirt with cute Greek guys.
June 22/23 – Go to Athens, and perhaps take the Ferry to Paros island.
That’s all I’ve got so far! I am thinking for after Skyros, to not really plan my trip and see where the road takes me. I don’t really like to have everything planned out. So, yeah! Woooooo, Greece baby! BTW, the picture above has no filter. Yup, yup, hahahhaha Yeah, baby Aegean sea! OPA BABY OPA!
