Day 1: The longest flight

The 48 hour day

View Greece with William on empaustian's travel map.

Will and I arrived at the airport for our 1:55 pm to find out that it didn't leave until 4:55 pm, but we were excited to have extra time with the family!
We fought sleep and prepared ourselves for the 10 hour flight to Frankfurt and connecting 3 hour flight to Athens. It was one of the more painful flights I've ever been on just trying to get comfortable. Will claimed his muscles had atrophied by the time we got off the flight.
I was thrilled when we got off the flight in Athens to 80 degree weather and a wonderful Airbnb host who gave us a tour of the neighborhood we are staying in, the Plaka. The Plaka is the historical district of Athens and, in my opinion, the best location to be staying in. We can actually see the Acropolis and Agora from our balcony and it's a 10 minute walk from our apartment!
We ended the day at a cute cafe and walking through the stone-paved streets before readily falling asleep at our apartment. Unfortunately, it didn't last long...
