“Experience, travel – these are as education in themselves” – Euripides
When September arrives bringing the first cold breeze, it triggers many people to start preparing their warm clothes and umbrellas for the upcoming winter. At Travelmyth, however, we are of the opinion that ‘it is still summer somewhere in the world’. Our beautiful homeland, Greece, is famous for its islands but it’s definitely worth a visit to the capital. Is there a better feeling than taking a refreshing fall dip in a rooftop pool with the sun-kissed Athens before your eyes?
