Athens---Greece---Food-and-Travel-Diary---My-Kiki-Cake---Sydney-Food-Blog--main

 Whilst I sit here working from home on a Saturday, I feel extremely nostalgic looking at these photos.

nos·tal·gia [no-stal-juh] noun

1. a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time: a nostalgia for his college days.

2. something that elicits or displays nostalgia.

I was in Athens just five months ago, but it feels like an age ago. It has been a whirlwind beginning to 2014, but I can’t complain, life in the fast lane is a lot better than the slow lane. I have saved some of the most impressive for last, with this blog post capturing our day exploring the most well-known and visited tourist attraction in Greece, the Acropolis. These days, a visit to the Acropolis needs to be coupled with a visit to the Acropolis Museum, so you can truly appreciate the history of this structure and its significance to Greece’s history. I hope you enjoy the photos from another gloriously sunny day in a Grecian winter.  This blog is the final one from Athens, but you can check out all of my other Greek travel posts here. Next up I will be sharing many beautiful photos and food endeavours from our five days in the city of love; Paris.
