OCT 20: Today was travel day from SFO to DFW to Madrid to Athens (scheduled;16.25 total flight hours).  It's tough travel any time there's more than one layover at an airport before arrival to your destination that's more than 5,000 miles away. The good news is that on my return flight from Istanbul to SFO, there was only one layover at Munich for less than two hours,
and arriving in SFO early by more than half an hour (scheduled;15 total flight hours).



OCT 21: After our arrival in Athens, my roommate and I took a taxi to our hotel, then walked about a half mile to a local restaurant for a leisurely, light dinner of some beer and tapas.
Some pictures taken during our walk back from our light dinner.

OCT 22: We walked about a mile to the double-decker tour bus stop close to Temple of Zeus/Hadrian's Gate (stop #5), and we waited about 15-minutes before the bus came. The
bus pass costs 18 Euro ($23.40) which is good for the day of purchase, and the next day. There are two routes, the red route that travels around the downtown area, and the blue route that goes to Piraeus where the passenger and freight ships are docked.  Passengers are allowed to get on and off at the 15-stops of the red route that we rode. We got off at the new Acropolis Museum, but it was closed for the day, so we walked to Filopappos Hill. On our
upward trek to the Monument of Filopappos, my roommate and I got separated, so we explored on our own – knowing that we had to be back to the hotel for our transfer to our ship at 12:15PM.   We were on board the MS Marina by 2PM, and had lunch at the Terrace restaurant.
I walked 6.2 miles today.

The cruise line provided us with the transfer to our ship, the Marina, the same ship my roommate and I cruised on this past January to the Caribbean.
