To me, standing atop the Acropolis is equivalent to a mountaineer standing atop Mount Everest. There is a monumental feeling of achievement that comes with being face to face with the stunning monuments of Greek history that are spread throughout the Acropolis, as well as the incredible panorama that the plateau offers visitors. I only wish entry into the Parthenon and other monuments was currently allowed. Although I have three days in Athens, I decided to complete the Acropolis hike first thing on my first afternoon here. My two days in the city since have offered me more ruins, adorable animals and incredible food than I could hope to encounter in any city.

Flying from Santorini to Athens the morning of my Acropolis hike, I chose this dress for two reasons - firstly, for it's convenience for flying with its slim fit #shift #dress design that doesn't blow up in the artificial wind created by the aeroplanes; and secondly, as it mimics the colours of the houses of Santorini and the Greek flag. I overheard a fellow ferry passenger mention that the reason for the white and blue houses along the Santorini caldera was that Greeks were forbidden to fly their ( #blue and #white ) flag, so as an act of defiance they painted their houses blue and white. I don't know how true this is but the fun fact inspired my attire nonetheless.
