29 April 2017
Took a nap and came to the Acropolis to buy tickets. The city looks so congested.
Landed in Greece
Boarded the flight to Athens after a 3 hour layover in Geneva. Our 7.5 hour flight from IAD landed in Switzerland early, around 7:20 a.m. local time.
We checked into the Swiss business class lounge and went to sleep on a comfy chair, since the United flight in was pretty much horrible. The seats were cramped, the meals, were bad, and the cabin was very cold, but the provided blankets we're more like handkerchiefs.
After napping for about 2 hours, we had some snacks from the lounge buffet (sandwiches, cheese, pastries, juice and Swiss chocolate), brushed our teeth and got on our final connection, Aegean Airlines.
