Walking Athens, Greece: Our First Itinerary

Hi there. We are often asked to share our trip itineraries. I think get it and here is why.  In a few weeks we leave for Thailand. Except for the “you must hang out with elephants,” admonition we constantly receive, Dave and I have no idea what to expect or where to go. Should we go to Phuket or Chiang Mai? Where should we go first? Do you know? I don’t. That being said, I did read a very useful web site which lists 39 things I should know if I go to Thailand.   Now I know that I should bow at the appropriate times, that that I should likewise not touch anyone on the head, and that really using a fork to eat is just plain foolish. All great advice, but again, where is my direction? We need a plan!

Consequently, because I need a plan, I remembered your requests for my plans. I do get it. So, between large bites of gluten free carrot cake and giant sips of whatever day time drink I can find, I am finally putting our itineraries together.  I am a bit overwhelmed. We travel more than I realize, which means I have quite a backlog to assemble. Nevertheless, I am excited. I envision these map-based-plans as travel safety nets and ready-made-trips. Hopefully, Dave and I can provide a new level of travel comfort, understanding and access.

 

Because it is fresh on my brain, I am beginning with Athens, Greece. I am posting some photos here to correlate with my Athens, Greece, Itinerary. Please feel free to give me your feedback.

Finally and most importantly,

What would you like to know?
What would help make these itineraries more interesting?
easier to follow?
and just plain useful?

Your feedback will not hurt my feelings. Your input is invaluable! If we are going to do this, we want to get this right.
