I was so relieved to finally make it to Athens after a delayed flight and literally running through the Amsterdam airport to make my connecting flight. Upon arriving at the President Hotel in Athens, I found my friends that I was meeting. After freshening up we ventured out to Taratsa, a restaurant with a fantastic rooftop view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. I totally pigged out on falafels, fresh tomatoes, pita, and hummus while everyone else also had different meats.
Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to travel and explore Ireland three times. The first two times I visited while nannying and the third time my mom and I went on an incredible culinary tour. One of my favorite parts about being in Ireland is being around so much greenery and so many kind people.
I am so unbelievably excited to travel to Europe next summer. I just booked a 35 day trip with EF College Break and now that’s all I can think about. The food, the people, the historical sights…it’s all something I’ve been saving for since I was a freshman in high school and next summer I will be doing it. Traveling with family or while nannying has always been incredible, but there’s something so rewarding about paying my own way and knowing this is something I’ve worked hard for.
