At the very end of my trip I stopped over in Athens for two wonderfully chaotic, hot and sweaty days. By staying in the central area of Omonia I was within easy reach of the Acropolis, National Gardens, Syntagma Square, the neighbourhood of Plaka, the flea market at Monasteraki, some of the best falafel and gelato I've had in a while, and a overall though hectic, friendly crowd of both locals and tourists. One of my best memories of my time there was walking to the top of Lycebettus Hill to watch the sunset over the city and the Aegean Sea - it was utterly stunning. I could not have wished for a more perfect ending to the adventure of a lifetime.
