My Athens

February 28, 2021

A whole year….
A whole year since the first lockdown. And although Spring is here, there are so many things we all miss. Moments. Family, Friends.
Moments in the city that never sleeps that feel somehow different now. More beautiful. More relaxed.
And even though the crazy pace of life continues, even though work hasn’t stopped, a short break in Athens is what we long for to relax.
Coffee. A stroll. Your friends. Combined with the spring backdrop in one of the most ancient cities of Greece, are what we call perfect happy days.
Dreamlike scenery with trees in blossom, purple and pink blooms. Spring is visiting, as it has done for the last 3000 years and finds old friends waiting.
Spring frames the perfect view from Lycabettus, with more intense colours, more life.
And the walks around Zappeion are just not the same, with its tables spread outside the cafes and restaurants, oh how much we have missed those tables…
And we can’t get enough of Dionysou Areopagitou, with its hills in their prime, until the beaches of course take over.
This is the Athens we are waiting to return to….
