When we found out that we would be traveling to Greece for our sister's wedding and started making plans for our stay in Athens, my other sister (my traveling companion) said that what she wanted to do more than anything else was to take a bike tour. Because I hadn't ridden my bike for more than 15 years due to a very busy family life, I didn't think I was up to it. I even tried to convince her to change her mind :). With very little time to prepare, I got my bike out and tried to ride a little each day in the time leading up to our trip.
When we showed up for our tour and I told Manos how long it had been since I had really ridden my bike, he seemed concerned. My sister assured him that I would be fine and we were off!
I am so glad that my sister made me do something that I didn't think that I would be capable of doing. While the ride was challenging at times, we saw so many things and learned so much that I would do it again in a heartbeat! Manos was a very patient and knowledgeable guide, and showed us more of Athens than we would have seen in 3 hours on our own. I felt like I had conquered the world when we were finished !
Thanks for some awesome memories, Manos! I think that this tour was not only a highlight of our trip to Athens, but one of the highlights of my life :)
