Our flight from Crete to Athens was quick and uneventful. We were only spending one night in Athens mainly because that’s where we were flying out from.
We stayed in the Grand Hyatt in Athens. It was a nice change of pace to be back in a hotel. As much as we love the space of vacation rentals, hotels are so easy and the amenities are always appreciated.
There was a very nice club lounge that we all enjoyed.
The main activity in Athens was to visit the Acropolis. It really is incredible. I was a little concerned about the uphill walk with James, but he was a trooper. It was definitely the most touristy thing that we did, but it was well worth it.
When we got back to the hotel, we took our Covid tests and prepared for the journey home. We were sad to leave but definitely ready to see Rex and return to normalcy.
