We had a lovely time in Aegina this past weekend. We went for the day rather than staying the weekend and it was so worth it. It's so nice to get away from the hubbub of the city. My dad's place is a proper little hideaway where all our worries melt away. How could they not with all these cute creatures surrounding us?
Henry had a brief dip in the pool (by way of an inflatable boat filled with lukewarm water) but he wasn't having any of it. He preferred dry land that day.
I would highly recommend at least a day trip to Aegina for anyone visiting Athens. It's so close (1 hour by boat and 45 mins by Flying Dolphin from the port of Piraeus) and yet it feels like you're on a faraway island getaway. You can find more information about travelling to Aegina, including ferry schedules, here.
What did you get up to over the weekend?
