I am now on my way to Greece and Italy for a wonderful cruise with friends. First stop was Athens… and its world famous Parthenon!

Visiting these world famous monuments, dating back from so long ago in time, symbol of our democracy and freedom, really was special.

In the evening, the big thing to do in Athens is to go on rooftop bars and restaurants to enjoy for just a little bit more the view on the splendid Acropolis hill. Magical! Speak with you tomorrow from the boat, where I will be joining friends for a crazy cruise…
