These are some loukoumathes (also my favorite) I bought from a panigiri festival just outside of my house last year.

I love going to the bakery. I always get zamponotiropita (ham and cheese pie) when I go to the bakery.

Yes but I currently live in Australia so I can't get out of the country. I have booked in my second vaccination for next week so I'm all ready to go when borders open again. I love Athens and live centrally when I go there. I can't wait to get back, walk down the streets of Athens and take in the sights and smells of the Athenian spring and summer. I expect that I will be able to travel next year and then I'll be going every year after that.

Do you go often or do you live there?

I wish I lived there! I live in Tennessee but my family is Armenian. I have a few family members living in Greece and they speak so highly of it. I've only been a few times but I would love to go back, especially Athens :) I hope you're able to visit Greece again soon, if not this year then the next for sure!!

Tips for taking taxis in Athens!

Of course, there are many reputable taxi drivers in Greece, and these days it's hard to get ripped off… but you always have to remain cautious. Some of the best advice that I can give you about taking taxis in Athens is knowing a bit about what is the normal price for your area and distance. I recommend that you ask waiters, Greek friends, or your hotel concierge about what should be expected for your trip. Before you start your ride, make sure that you ask about how much the trip will cost. And make sure that they turn the meter on at the start of your trip. In addition, I always check Google maps to make sure that the taxi driver is taking the fastest route.

Take a boat instead of driving to Porto Cheli!

I've seen so many people rent cars and drive all the way down to Porto Cheli from the Athens airport. While this is a great option if you prefer to drive, many people overlook taking a boat because it takes just a little bit longer. The reality is that taking a boat is much cheaper, and you also can be a lot more comfortable since you're able to walk around the deck, get snacks and coffee, and use the bathroom. Personally, I love taking the boat, because I also like to visit Hydra and Spetses when I am there and it's much easier to take boats to both of those islands as well.

Tips on making your trip to the Acropolis kid friendly!

Many activities in Greece can be kid friendly, as long as you make some minor adjustments. The acropolis is a great place to visit but it can get a bit tiring for young kids who don't like being in the sun or walking up a lot of stairs. My first recommendation is to go very early in the morning, or late afternoon when there is not a lot of sun. Make sure the little ones are wearing hats and sunscreen and they are very hydrated. I suggest that you don't spend too much time at the top of the acropolis, but rather take a stroll through the museum and have a snack at the Café that overlooks the Acropolis. As always, you can make the experience more fun by getting some goodies at the gift shop.

Where to go in Athens for some of the best nightlife!

Athens has some great nightlife!! There are so many options to choose from, and it really depends on what you're looking for. My personal favourites are rooftop bars that overlook the Parthenon, you can find most of these in Thissio. But many local Athenians would say that these spots are very touristy and not as fun Exarchia and Gazi for example. If you're interested in going to bars that are by the beach, but still pretty close to the city I recommend Gylfada. Psiri it's also a very trendy neighbourhood that is popular amongst the locals! Try them out and let me know what you think!
