Island and Room Hopping

Today started out very early with Marc going out of the hotel to get this coffee we like. It was apparently a little to early to be roaming the streets of Athens because the night shift hadn't changed over yet. Freaks and hookers and bums oh my. He got back safely and we got on our way.
We went on this big boat with a whole bunch of people to all these three islands.


That was pretty. Then we went to another island.....


They were both pretty, but the third island was the best. It was called Hydra and it was so pretty. Exactly what you think of when you think of Greece (if you've never been here).



We swam there and dove off the cliffs. It was my favorite part of the day.
By the time we were going home we (well I) was a little punch drunk, I couldn't stop laughing about this guy on the boat who fell asleep with a big wine bottle in his hand that Marc had me take a picture of, and the slippers and then our bus driver. He was a piece of work. He wasn't even going all the way to the hotels, he told the tour guide girl that people could walk, then he stopped and made her get out and get him cigarettes. When he dropped us off we had no idea where we were. It was almost 9:00 and we were hungry and tired and it sucked. Marc of course, figured it out and we got back to the hotel. He ordered room service. The guy on the phone was kind of rude and Marc was over it by then. He went down to the front desk, uh oh. To make a long story short, now we have a suite. A nice big huge suite. All good again, except my internet connection isn't that great. It's okay for right now though.

This was wine bottle guy, he was actually alone. "All I need is this camera and this wine bottle. That's all I need."

Amy, you have the best husband. So nice of him to plan this trip on the spot for you. What a guy. I need one just like him. Well, a gay version of him, anyway. Tell him to wear the "homo" shirt and pick up some guy for me. That's your job, now. Meet some cute gay guy over there, take his picture and blog it. Send me his email address so we can start chatting. In a year from now, I'll be moving to Greece for a whole new life . Yes, I'm a bit punch drunk myself right now. Can you tell? I'm just catching up on all of your vacation blog entries, and I've not got much energy to be witty. Sorry. Still, I am loving your entries. Makes me wish I was there with you. Remember your assignment.
