I'm sharing some extended details of my Greek Islands trip from the other year while busy with work. The trip itinerary can be found here.
The last time I was in Athens, the Acropolis Museum had just opened, and I was unable to visit, but this time around I actually made it inside. It is really a very lovely museum and offers a nice respite from the summer heat. I especially like the top floor which is a to-scale representation of the Parthenon, with giant windows that overlook the Acropolis. Really, really well done.
I also visited the Poet Sandal Maker and now have a second pair of beautifully handmade sandals. Huzzah for souvenirs that serve some sort of purpose!
