We made it! Absolutely loving this view of the Acropolis from our apartment balcony. It’s even closer than it appears in the photo. The weather is incredibly beautiful and perfect too - hallelujah! We’re all battling through some jet lag but still managing to explore the streets, enjoy fabulous food and what honestly seems like the friendliest people in Europe. It’s only been a few hours, but everywhere we turn locals are smiling and doting on Chiara. As in very affectionate. It’s super sweet to be in a culture that clearly embraces children with open arms - literally....so how about the flight, you might be wondering? 😁 11 hours of flight time and Chiara slept maybe 2-3 hours. This is a child who sleeps for 11-12 hours a night on average. I thought for sure she’d pass out asleep, but no such luck! Too much stimulation and any time she’d try to lie down in the seat between us, it clearly felt awkward to her. She rallied until about 7pm tonight but her eyes were so pink rimmed from exhaustion. I think I got maybe 1.5-2 hours of sleep last night. She was a great traveler otherwise, just wanting to be busy climbing on the seat, playing with cups, reading books, laughing and clapping deliriously from being overtired, and constantly eating snacks. She’s obsessed with the moving walkways at the airports. For as much sitting as I’ve done on the airplane, I’ve also done a ton of walking in the past 24 hours. Oh what we’ll do as parents to keep them entertained while traveling! Tomorrow will be another day of high activity. Excited to get out and continue exploring!
