It’s funny, the things you miss when travelling long term. We rented a car a few days ago to take a day trip out of Athens, and we were so excited to be able to drive wherever we wanted, take random turn-offs, and stop and start our trip at any time. I was actually jealous of Ben, who drove the whole time since I can’t drive a manual.
So we jumped into the car with enthusiasm and started down the coast, eyes glued on the clear water of the Mediterranean. Our first stop was Vouliagmeni, a cute seaside town where, thanks to the off season, $2 Euro got us onto a beautiful beach with free chairs and umbrellas, two playgrounds, and clean bathrooms. Take that, Jersey Shore.
