Met up with an old elementary school classmate. Very random.
After sitting in my apartment for the last two months, reading nothing but books on Europe, so much that I felt like I already knew the place. Now I can finally say I've been. The flights were long, but at my gate I ran into someone I knew from elementary school. Frankfurt is a HUGE airport. While there I discovered that handlebar moustaches and mullets haven't gone out of style in Germany. I didn't have any problems getting to my hotel, since there were Greek men left, right & centre offering to give me directions, buy my metro ticket, give me tours. I thought "wow I could get used to this", but boy did I get tired of it quickly. Not getting to my hotel until 6:30, not having slept in many hours and considering my hotel was in one of the sketchier parts of Athens
(Psiri), I decided to keep the sightseeing for after the cruise. Instead I got to know my new roommates, Fatima & Shanelle. It was a great first day; didn't get too lost, didn't get crazy roommates and well, I was in Greece and I was jumping on a cruise the next morning.
Athens Hotels & Accommodations review
This hotel is located in a very dodgy part of the city. If you are a woman traveling alone, I wouldn't recommend leaving the hotel at night.
