France is a lovely country to live in. Especially in May as the month is clogged with Bank Holidays. And Bank Holidays is a great thing, right?
Taking advantage of 2 consecutive Bank Holidays, J and I took a break from a busy Parisian life to spend 5 days in Greece, first half in Athens, and second half in Santorini Island.
Athens was nice, although I was a bit let down. I had in mind a city like Roma or Paris full of history in every corner. Of course you have large beautiful and major sites but the city in itself felt a bit grey and unattractive to me. Okay, maybe was it due to the fact that the day before departure to Greece I had 2 teeth removed and may not have been in the best happy-go-lucky mindset during the first days of my stay in Athens 🙂
But whining set apart, I very much enjoyed the Acropolis and the views from there. And, as usual, the place was a great base to start Jumping. J accepted to be the jumping photographer of the trip and she really much lived up to the challenge !
After Athens, we headed to Santorini, a little Island part of the Cyclades. That Island, and the place we stayed at, the Santorini Princess, were truly gorgeous. So gorgeous that we even forgot to jump there…. #FAIL.
