I can't think of a better way to spend my last week in Greece than with Ben. Last Wednesday he arrived and explored Athens a little bit. We saw the temple of Zeus, Neo Faliro Marina, and Lycabittes Hill together. Since Ben had been here before we decided not to do too much "touristy stuff" (especially since I'm all temple-ed out anyway.) But we did manage to get a couple sites in...
At the Temple of Zeus
Souvlakis in Syntagma
This past weekend we spent traveling to Florence and Pisa! It was a great trip and we saw a TON, and had some great food (unlike when I went to Rome!)... not to mention it was awesome to have Florence be totally decked out for Christmas! (Athens just started turning the Christmas lights on on Monday!)
I don't have many pictures on my camera because we quickly realized that Ben's was much more reliable... I'll get the rest from him when I follow him home in a couple of days!
I still can't get over Ben having made the trip to come see me. It was great to get to show him what I've experienced here, to be able to spend time with him, and to travel with him. Now I can't wait to go home and spend Christmas and New Years together with him, and our families!
I admit it... I'm packed and I'm not buying any more groceries... three exams tomorrow...brunch and one last dinner with the BCA kids on Friday and then catching flights home late, late Friday night (okay, 3am Saturday morning.)
See you all soon!
