We arrived here in Athens this morning, September 19, 2021 and are excited to be back in Greece for our 3rd Anniversary trip! We had planned this trip for last year but you all know how that story goes! Going through the airport went well, we had to show our CDC vaccine cards for proof of vaccination and then we were good to go.
We checked in to our hotel, Electra Palace In Athens. Of course, once checked into the hotel the first thing we had to do was eat. If you have been following my blog, you know we like to eat, and we especially love Greek food.
I won’t be blogging everyday but I am planning on blogging a few times throughout this trip. We will be gone for 2 weeks and from Athens we will be traveling to Crete, Naxos, Santorini and then back to Athens. Plans are for hiking, visiting Greek towns and villas, roaming through ancient ruins, checking out some awesome beaches, a catamaran day, of course lots of food and hopefully some relaxation!!

Welcome to Greece!
Should you wish any tips for hiking and/or any other help, feel free to get in touch.
In the meantime, I wish you to have a fabulous time!
Thank you very much! We have a couple
of Short hikes planned in both Crete and Naxos, hoping they aren’t too rough!!
Glad you made it. Stay safe Lori. Allan
Thanks, Allan! I am pretty excited!
Yay! So excited to live vicariously through you!
I’ll try to have extra fun just for you!
It’s already been 2 years since we saw Athens and we have been talking about a return visit–seeing your photos makes us miss the food even more!
You are doing similar islands as the ones we did in 2019, all great choices. Crete and Naxos were relaxing and even before COVID the numbers of tourists were not overly heavy. I imagine they should be even quieter now. And those Santorini sunsets…
It’s been 2!years for us as well. We love Crete and Santorini but Naxos is new to us. I can’t wait to explore it
have a wonderful trip; I remember reading about your previous visit, so I am sure you will have a great time!
Thanks Jim! We are ready for some fun and lots of Greek food!
We stayed in the Electra Palace in 2020 for our anniversary just before COVID hit. If you get a chance, have a massage in the spa as they are amazing 🙂
We love it here, stayed here in 2018 and 2019z. Won’t have time for a massage but the spa looks awesome!!
Greece is on my bucket list. Would love to know how your itinerary works out and your favorite places!
I’ll let you know! This is our third time here so I have a long list of favorites places!! Lol! So far, since we like to hike, Crete tops the list.
That’s good to know! I hike 5x a week
Oh wow!! In Crete the hikes are a lot of fun. We like to hike down gorges and end up at the sea!
I’m looking forward to more on your travels in Greece. I really enjoyed your posts from the last trip….in the before times!
Thanks! We are so excited to be here again! So much to see and do!
Love that shot of the Parthenon – #1 on my bucket list. Hoping to get there in the next 2-3 years.
Greece is our favorite destination. The Parthenon is beyond amazing! Even more beautiful at night!
Ah, what I wouldn’t do to travel internationally again! Enjoy your time in Greece, and I look forward to the adventures you document on your travels there. 🙂
