Greece!

This post begins one of many and you will probably be sick of Greece by the time it's over. But, I don't care. I took over 900 pictures and had a blast!

It all started on Saturday morning as Jed took us to the airport. Our flight to Atlanta was a little late but we landed safely. Our layover was supposed to be 4 hours but with the time change and the time it took to exchange our money, it was only around 2 hours. I gave the man $400 and got back $260 euros. Suck!
We grabbed some lunch and then waited at the gate. The gigantic airplane arrived and we boarded. We flew. I dozed. I looked out the window. It was the ocean. Forever.

Then the Swiss Alps.

Italy.

And 10 1/2 hours later, finally Athens.

But the airplane fun had not ended as we had to catch another flight to Mykonos! On a prop plane no less!

We landed and the van to the hotel was there to pick us up. We drove through Mykonos town and to the hotel. It took us about 15 minutes.

We checked in without a hitch and the bellman took our giant bags for us. Good sign. We got to the room and it was awesome!

It was very cute and the sheets looked ironed!

We immediately put on our swimming togs and headed to the pool. I think I'd slept about 5 hours but Mooey and Weenie were not so lucky. They'd dozed some but had basically been up for 24 hours.

We were starving so we sat at the pool dining area and ordered club sammys and beer. The beer led to wine. Check out this view!
Weenie and I fell asleep at the pool. I made it back to the room but never recovered. Mooey and Weenie went out for a bite and look what I missed!
Yummy eggplant salad!
And Greek dancing. Motherfucker. Can you believe I slept through this?

No dancing for Mooey! Mooey and Weenie named them Milli Vanilli.
