Yesterday was a sunny day in Athens, but COLD. Ohhhhhh so cold. Many might think that Greece is hot and sunny all year round, but in the winter it can be cold - mainly because it's humid, hence the air gets wet and into your bones.
Being as it was so sunny, I had the choice: go for a walk in the Park and have a hot chocolate, or do the same by the sea. I decided on the latter - and was so glad I did.
Hopping on the tram, I meandered my way down to the coast and watched the mixture of classical and grey buildings whizz by. After about 30 minutes, these buildings start thinning out, we turn a corner and there - I am confronted with the sea finally. I IMMEDIATELY felt my spirits lift. There's something so peaceful about the sea that I can understand one wanting to make their livelihood from it or on it.
