The trip started with early morning Delhi-Doha-Athens flight. We reached Athens at 7 PM local time. Local sim card was not available at Airport, which was a minor inconvenience. The airport is not in the Athens city and it took us some 30-45 mins to reach to our hotel. Our first reaction - Athens, with its ancient city charm has glimpse of current volatile environment. As we had return flight booked from Athens only we planned our trip in such a manner that we cover Athens at the end of our trip. We stayed in Athens Way hotel which was perfect fit (cheap, centrally located) as we just needed to spend a night there and we had an early morning train to Meteora. We bought some stuff from the local market and were just too tired from our flights to explore anything.
