Finally! My vacation from TBG and SWMBO and all things assistance-dog-in-training has arrived. Here I am in the airplane on my way to Greece.
Arrived in Athens and went for a walk to get oriented to the city. I also walked by the Old Stadium. Greeks' definition of "old" is quite different from mine! Sadly, I couldn't find a cutie pie to take my photo for me. I almost did a self-portrait like Ansel used to...

I did some more sightseeing. I stopped at the Roman Baths and the Temple of Zeus. Awe-inspiring!
Monday, May 21
I thought about attending a conference that was occurring at my hotel...but...decided to go to the Acropolis instead. Here I am at one of the buildings, but sadly, my tour guides were so excited to be at the Parthenon that they never bothered to get a photo of me. But I was there; really!

I hopped on a boat tour to three of the islands. I think my tour guide had a sense of humor with this photo. What do you think?

I took a trip to Delphi, and I can't say enough about what a great experience this was...here are some views from the Temple of Apollo.
Friday, May 25
I hopped a flight to the Island of Samos. Paradise doesn't quite describe it! And a few neighbors welcomed me with some Ouzo!

Here I am, relaxing at the seaside...ahh! I love sand in my fur and pebbles between my toes!
Monday, May 28
I did quite a bit of hiking around the island across several days. The photos really don't do the beauty and grandeur justice at all. I really liked the seaside/mountain juxtaposition.
Tuesday, May 29
I was a little tired of hiking; what with my pads being sore from the pebble beach and all...so I hired a driver to take me all around and stop at a few historic sites. It's hard to see, but there is a big fortress in the background.

Time for some more relaxin'! Here is the view from the front porch of my digs in Samos!
Thursday. May 31
Time to head home! I wonder if TBG and SWMBO missed me?
