Next up, on our Honeymoon tour: Athens, Greece!
Missed Stop 1? Venice
Fun facts about Athens:
- Athens is the largest city & capital of Greece
- It’s one of the world’s oldest cities
- Population: approximately 3,932,756
- First modern Olympic Games were held in Athens in 1896
- Birthplace of many prominent writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists of the ancient world, including Sophocles, Socrates and Pericles.
And it’s smokin’ hot!
It reached a high of 38 degrees Celsius the day we were there. Eric and I were sweating buckets while climbing the Acropolis and Filopappos hill. We finally reached the top of the Acropolis and discovered there was no water to be found, just a lot of thirsty tourists! If you ever find yourself climbing this, bring more than 1 bottle of water… ;)
There are about 150,000 stray dogs living on the streets in Athens. I wanted to take all of them home…
After our climbs, we headed to the Plaka shopping area where there are a lot of tourist/market type shops and high end shopping too.

Such nice pictures!
Those tea’s sound delish!
Athens was another place I visitied during my teenage years. Growing up, I was obsessed with Greek and Roman mythology and it was amazing to see all the structures that were built as tribute to those gods and goddesses still standing! My favorite part of the trip was the island hopping cruise we did through the Mediterranean – I plan to retire on one of those islands! :-)
*sigh* Would love to go to Greece.
I love your honeymoon photos. Greece is definitely on my list of places I would like to visit during my lifetime, maybe even this year.
Would love to have some of this delicious tea for the fall! thanks!
Mmm!! Looks delightful! I would looveeee to go there!
The tea looks lovely, but can I maybe win a trip to Athen’s instead?
Love your pictures of Greece. I just discovered your blog this afternoon, and I know I want to make those burgers.
While I’m not a tea drinker in the summer, I am beginning to crave it as Fall approaches (quickly, I hope!!!). Is there anything better than walking through crunchy leaves in a park, snuggled deep in a sweater, sipping a Chai tea??? :) All of these flavors look wonderful!
I thoroughly love loose leaf tea so PICK ME:)
I love tea!
Thanks for this giveaway, Angela! My hubby loves tea.
I’ve never heard of FeelGoodTea – but I am such a big fan of loose leaf tea!
Best way to start off the day – I definitely agree with you on that one :)
I would to add this tea to my collection. I’m excited to try new teas.
looking forward to having some tea with those mini doughnuts !!
I’m in the process of converting from coffee to tea, so this would be a wonderful gift to win!
Delicious tea, particularly white tea – tastes amazing, fresh and really healthy! x
