We arrived in Athens at sunrise, knowing we had to make the best of what little time we had. We had 24 hours to explore the city before our flight the next day to Lesvos. We had done this before. While jet lag was certainly present and I drank more coffee than I care to admit, our adventure included everything that we really wanted to do.

It was late when we arrived, and when we arrived at the crew hotel, we quickly changed and ran out the door to explore the city. Most places were closing or closed but we got a chance to hit up a little restaurant called Las Vegas and enjoy some wonderful Cuban food! Then we went out and found a little hookah spot! It was a wonderful night!

I remember us planning this trip, and being so excited to visit bourbon street! Sadly that never happened because we ended up having a short layover and we were too far from downtown to even make the attempt. We’ve since been there but I remember we were both disappointed that we didn’t make it out!
