Greece! | Day 1

Yes! Its the best time to travel to Greece. Even with financial crisis happening, it makes Greece more affordable to travel!


We chose Greece as one of the destination in our backpacking Europe itinerary.

May'15
Breezy noon with landed at Athens International Airport by Pegasus Airlines from Istanbul, Turkey. We got the air fare quite cheap! Return trip for Euro90 per pax! The plus of choosing this airline, they allow 30kg baggage allowance for check in, FREE! Seats are clean, staff is friendly. No complaints on that!


We booked our 1st stay in Athens through Airbnb.com (Rental of Accomodation). Basement room with ensuite and free breakfast. Another plus is FREE transport to/from airport (which is 15 minutes away!) cost us both Euro39 per night! Good deal!


Ahhhh, such a nice place!

Souvalaki / Gyros, Euro 2




Our dinner cost us Euro10 for 2 pax. I must say, every meal with a Gyros is enough for me! We took a stroll back to our Home. Sun still brightly shinning at 8.30pm in Spring!

Can't wait for our early flight to Santorini tomorrow!
