My Athens

February 28, 2021

A whole year……
A whole year since the first lockdown. And even though spring is here, there are so many things we all miss. Moments. Family, friends.
Moments in the city that never sleeps that somehow feel different now. More beautiful. More relaxed.
And even though the crazy pace of life continues, even though work hasn’t stopped, we long for a short break in Athens to relax.
A coffee. A walk. Your friends. Combined with the springtime scenery in one of Greece’s oldest cities, these are what we call perfect happy days.
Dreamy landscapes with blossoming trees, purple and pink flowers. Spring comes to visit, as it has done for 3000 years, and finds old friends waiting for it.
Spring frames the perfect view from Lycabettus, with more intense colours, more life.
And the walks around the Zappeion are just not the same anymore, with the tables in front of the cafés and restaurants, oh, how we missed those tables.
And we can’t get enough of Dionysou Areopagitou, with its hills in their prime, until of course the beaches take over.
This is the Athens we are waiting to return to……
