After climbing hills and sitting on rooftops to admire the Acropolis from afar, today we went up and saw the Parthenon. It was definitely worth seeing up close!
Fun story: After taking this picture, Nick was asked to take a photo of a woman traveling by herself. Knowing that Nick doesn’t really like being responsible for taking a good photo of someone, I asked if he needed help and he handed me the camera so I could take the picture. While taking a few snaps, Nick is approached again to take a photo of a couple. I figured I would finish with this lady and see if he needed help. As I walked toward him, he gave me a funny look while not putting the camera down. I looked over and the guy pulled out a ring box and got down on one knee. Not knowing that Nick was trying to get a small video, I was like “just keep snapping photos!” I’m confident he got some good pics, but as we walked away he said, “I should have just kept the first camera.” I will forever remember the Acropolis as the time Nick was an engagement photographer.
After a couple of hours walking around in the heat, we treated ourselves to some baclava ice cream (its AMAZING) and bought an assortment of baclava for later.
