Today (Friday) we woke up and it was raining again, so we were worried that we were going to have another bad weather day. However, the rain quickly passed and the sun came out. It was so warm outside too! After getting ready this morning, we took the metro to the port because we wanted to see how much it would be for a boat ride one day to the Greek islands. We found this really nice business that helped us decide what we wanted to do. Tomorrow, we are taking a boat to the Greek island of Aegina for the day which we are all looking forward to!
After figuring out stuff for tomorrow (Saturday), we got some lunch, and then we were headed to the beach for the afternoon. The beach we wanted to go to was a ways from the port and wasn’t accessible by metro, so we got a taxi. Miraculously, we fit all five of us plus the taxi driver into this small taxi. I sat partially on Katie’s lap and partially on Jen’s….what an interesting ride it was. We did get to see the professional soccer stadium of the Greek team. It was so cool, because I have never seen a big soccer stadium like that before! Morgan, Brady, and I (the soccer players) were pretty much in our glory. The taxi driver also pointed out the basketball and volleyball arenas.
I was extremely excited to finally see the beach! I have never seen water so clear and blue. The water temperature wasn’t too bad either, just a little chilly. The water was very shallow and we were able to walk out to a really big, pretty rock island. I laid out on the rock for a little while, and even got a tan line! Needless to say, it was a very good day! After lying out in the sun all day, we came back to the apartment, showered, and made dinner. We had spaghetti and salad. It is fun to cook together! Last night we had chicken salads.
We are meeting up with some friends who are also in Greece for Spring break for the rest of the evening. I am having so much fun in Greece! We have so much more planned for the next couple of days! I am also very excited to see my parents in just 4 days!
Have a good weekend everyone!
