Adventurous travel to Athens, Greece is no easy task.
We arrive in Athens, Greece. After a LONG day of travel! Chicago to Istanbul, Istanbul to Athens. But not without a missed flight, of course.
We exit the aircraft in Istanbul.
The time is too tight for our connecting flight to Athens, but we hustle anyway. The assistant is waiting for us. He flags us down and insists we follow him. The communication is lacking because of the language barrier. We don’t speak Greek, he doesn’t speak English
We trust him by following in his speedy footsteps and soon start running toward the next gate. At the arrival of our gate, I receive the shrug of shoulders. The boarding process is complete, the doors are locked. We missed our connecting flight to Athens.
Lunch at the airport cafe. HAPPY VACATION! We board the next available flight to Athens.
After traveling from car to plane, plane to plane, plane to subway, we’ve reached our destination.
We exit the subway to the most magnificent view, the Parthenon. I’m in complete marvel at the wonder I see perched upon the Acropolis of Athens. The sun sets behind me and the Parthenon is lit as night quickly approaches. I thrive on the experiences that adventurous travel provides.
I invite you along on this journey of The 100 Day Project.
There will be times of triumph and times of struggle, but I will show up through it all. I look forward to hearing your thoughts along the way.
