I'm here!

After spending a night in New York, I caught the arcadia group flight to London, then after a brief layover and a slightly less brief flight delay, we left for Athens. I met up with my four roommates, and with Arcadia's assistance, we arrived safely at our apartment with all our luggage. We live on the 3rd floor, but luckily there's an elevator! We each took our luggage up one by one, and then we had to have a lesson on how to unlock the door.
It's pretty cold in our apartment, so after a bit of unpacking, we had some tea and sat around the oven until dinner time. The apartment is fantastic (other than the coldness). We have four(ish) bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, two balconies, and an entry way with a couch!
I can't wait to start cooking.
Pictures will come soon. We have a tiny bit of internet access.


  1. Glad you made it safely. Look fwd to pics. So care package should include a floor heater and electric socks. ;-)

  2. This sounds so incredible. I can't tell you how jealous I am AND how much I miss you. If you like your new roommates better than me, I will confirm my mother's worst fears and fall off of our balcony.
    Also, I got distracted today looking at pictures of Delphi. YOU HAVE TO GO THERE. Live my dreams for me, baby!

  4. OK, I am now able to post a comment. Love the photos. Can't wait to hear about the ancient Greek sites you may be able to visit. I know that you will also be studying, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses. :)
