Right after I arrived in Madrid from Canada, went home and took a shower and off to the university. I attended my classes for a week and after that we had a vacation again...for 5 days!

My mind was set to go to Greece so I went to TIVE (a travel agency for students...really cheap tickets! But you have to have an ISIC student card to be able to avail of the discounts. This is located in Moncloa, the university district of Madrid).

I flew with Olympic Airways (now it's Olympic Airlines). I was excited to see Athens! The plane which took me to Greece was a Boeing 737 of Olympic Airways. The flight was not that full. I was seated next to a Greek guy but he was asked to transfer to another empty row right after take off so we could have both rows only for us. The legroom was OK and the food was OK too. I liked the on-board entertainment because there was a selection of nice Greek songs. Landing was rough and the plane was hit by a turbulence minutes before we landed at Eleftherios Venizelos Airport. A modern airport and with a beautiful architecture. Especially at dawn, Spata (where the airport is located) looks beautiful!

The Evzons at Syndagma Square. I would usually visit this place during my stay here in Athens and one time without knowing I went beyond the permitted area and the guards suddenly signalled me (to stay away from that area) by moving their rifles back and forth (the evzons can't really talk nor move while on duty!). I said sorry and the guards (who were not on duty) were laughing.

Return flight was also on Olympic Airways B737 but this time it was flying first to Barcelona before heading back to Madrid. Nice! I had not been to Barcelona so at least I'd be able to see the city on air and well, see the airport too, lol. No inflight entertainment whatsoever. The headset was not working. Food OK though. Turbulent flight. And was Greek seating next to me was freaking out, lol. Approach to Barcelona airport was bumpy and afterwards during take off (to Madrid) the plane suddenly dropped for several meters. Arrival in Madrid at 13 hours. I went to my flat and took a shower and went straight to school.

Here are some of the pictures I took during my flight from Madrid to Athens and back (with disposable cameras!)
