Athens is such an amazing city that you never tire of returning here and visiting all the ancient sites. This is my third visit to the famous Acropolis and surrounding area and it still fascinates me as much as it did the first time. There is much restoration work being carried out on the old buildings and structures and I would imagine it will be many years or even decades before they are completed. I spent a wonderful day on my own, which was great for a change and became a typical tourist. While writing a post card, a fellow Australian traveller beside me asked me which cruise ship I was from, as there were two in port and that most of the passengers were from Australia. It appears that Australians are still doing a lot of overseas travel especially on cruise ships!
