It's official! I have now paid for all travel (bus, tours, and flights), and most of the deposits for my accommodation! Now it is 6 months of full-on saving and google-mapping places, and street-view wandering until I finally touch down in Paris! I left off on the Travel Series last year in Rome and the Italian Adventure. From Rome I fly on Easy Jet (Yes, that airline) to Athens. I'm staying at AthenStyle hostel, right next to Monastiraki Square (last photo) for 3 nights before departing on my Greek Island Hopper (Mykonos, Paros, Santorini and Ios).
I know I have to brush up on my Ancient Greek Classics (I'm going to re-read Homer's Odyssey and Iliad before I go). I love that my hostel sits just under the Acropolis Hill so I can hike up to the Parthenon whenever I like!
I love Greek food so I am super prepared to be drowning in salad (they don't call it Greek Salad over there, it's just Salad!), Spanakopita, Tzatziki and of course Souvlaki! Yum!
I'm planning on purchasing my iPad Mini next week to start downloading apps. I think it will be easiest for me to do blogs this way - I will upload photos to my Google Drive or DropBox to lessen the amount of space used on the iPad. I can edit photo's before uploading them! I'll then just keep as many as I can on an SD card then buy a new one when I need. I have an 8GB SD card at the moment so I should be fine!
Does anyone know of the essential photography iPad apps? xx
