Traveling from LAX to Athens

We began our anniversary celebration on Friday morning with a coffee date and pedicures. We had a quick lunch with the kiddos and Luke's new Minecraft game came in the mail, so they were quite distracted when we left, which was a blessing!
Then we headed to LA and tried a tapas place called Bacari PDR. We got a shrimp stuffed mushroom tower, wild mushroom pizza and this amazing truffle mac n cheese.
We finished off the night with Yogurtland!

We started Saturday with a 1:15am wake up call for a 7 mile treadmill run and strength in the hote gym! Then we headed off to the airport for our 6:20 flight. The flight went off without a hitch, we landed in Philly around 2:30 and got lunch, a delicious burrito bowl with spinach, black beans, roasted veggies, chicken, and chips and guac. It was maybe the best airport food I've had! Then after a quick layover, we were in for the big 9 hour flight into Athens. They fed us twice and I managed to get about 4-5 hours of sleep.

Sunrise over Athens

We rode public transportation for about an hour to our hotel. We made it at around 11am and grabbed a gyro, some kebabs, and tzatziki for lunch and of course gelato!
Thankfully we crashed for about 2 1/2 hours and were able to take showers because it was 102 with 100% humidity.

Then we headed to the metro station and went to downtown Athens and the Acropolis. 
We ate dinner around 8pm downtown and shared a Greek variety plate of Moussaka, baked spaghetti, cheese and spinach pie, and a fried zucchini ball.
The Moussaka with b├ęchamel was awesomesauce! So far that, along with tzatziki and gelato have been my favs! 

Day 2 in Athens. I'm wide awake at 4am and starving! Today will mostly be museums and hopefully more gelato and perhaps a scooter rental!
