October 2020: Athens (Part 1): Settling In


With our original plans for 2020 in tatters and multiple replacements having suffered a similar fate, Bruce and I tried one more time by arranging to spend a week in the Greek capital. Somehow, this one managed to survive. We set out for Athens from London on Saturday 03-Oct, flying British Airways in the Club Europe cabin.

Our main accommodation in Greece was in a centrally located Airbnb apartment, but Bruce also decided to treat us to an indulgent first night at the InterContinental, using a ‘free night’ certificate that he happened to have.


We had an intentionally lazy day on Sunday, simply changing location, settling into our apartment and enjoying one of its best features – the garden!
