We had a bit of a bumpy start to our trip, but everything is going great. I got into Athens on Friday afternoon, knowing that Danielle had missed one of her connections and I had no idea when she would get in. I went to the hotel we had booked (the only thing we had actually booked in advance!) to find out they had given our room away when Danielle didn't show up when we said she would. The owners were quite helpful though, and booked me in a nearby hotel that turned out to be pretty nice. After checking email, I found that I would be on my own for the night, since Danielle couldn't get out until late Friday afternoon. I had a nice evening seeing the sights in Athens and she showed up about 11:30 the next morning, so it worked out OK.
We stopped by a travel agency that afternoon to book our ferry over to Samos, which is the usual departure point for trips to Turkey. After about an hour with him, we had booked the entire rest of the trip! Ferries, hotels, flights - the works. Turned out great, since we don't have to worry about anything but which of the fabulous Greek wines to have with dinner or the best vantage point to see the sunsets :)
