Yes! In October and in Europe! The last days of my trip to Greece were absolutely fantastic! Breathtaking beaches, adorable villages and a weather to die for! After visiting the lakes in Western Macedonia I had two choices: going to Thessaloniki and a bit further towards Turkey or heading down along the coast, for a nice beach roadtripping. I chose the latter because we hadn't much time and still wanted to lay on the beach, since the weather was on our side. Just to name a few: Agiokampos, Mylopotamos, Agios Ioannis, Kala Nera... Most of these beaches are quite inacessible (secondary roads diverting from the main, distancing some km) so they are quiet and almost pristine. It's really worth a visit. I could not get satisfaction with just one beach!
The last day in Athens was spent in Glyfada, a nice sidewalk along the coast, built for the Olympic Games, and exploring once more the center of the town, with the beautiful Acropolis always on the picture.
This was a remarkable trip because it exceeded my expectations at all levels. Greece is a country to love, to live and to come back. Never a place has matched my heart in the way Greece did. I loved the weather, the people, the food and the Greek simple way of living!
