So a tiny bit of Robson family info. My lovely parents moved to Greece almost two years ago (for my dad’s work). Our dogs, Ella and Kiri, are out there with them. My mum recently adopted a cat. We named him Rocco. And my precious Waffles is out there too while I’m away. Gosh darn, I miss my cat. Anyway, these pictures are from my last visit in August.My dad and I went touristing one sunny sunday. It was my first time seeing all the ancient greek stuff. My parents are so over the sight-seeing, having been tour guide for any family member/friend who has visited. I remember trying to call my mum when I was in Japan and she was all, “‘I’m going to have to call you back later. I never get any signal at the top of the Acropolis”. Onto the Panathenaic Stadium!
Fun facts: The ancient Olympic stadium was built entirely by marble and hosted the first modern Olympic games in 1896. In the 2004 Athens Games it hosted the archery plus the finish of the marathon. Thanks google! Amusingly, there were some other tourists doing sprints around the track. They made it to about 120 metres before realising that the full 400 is no joke. Walking the dogs generally ends up with me geeking out over the views. It’s all so pretty! #nofilter.
It feels like a blog post isn’t complete without a sunset snap.
Thanks for reading!
