February 2007: Shuli and Adam escape to New Zealand.

4-11 October 2006: The family goes to Greece. More precisely, to Athens and the northwest of Greece.
Some tips:
Greece, like the rest of Europe, is expensive. Especially Athens. However, credit cards are not liked outside hotels. Many restaurants, especially outside Athens, accept only cash, and some accept credit cards but give you a hard time. Ditto for gas stations and small stores.
If you a promised a GPS device, check again. Car rental agencies are quick to promise, slow to deliver. And signs in Greece are not reliable (even in Athens, which is by far better than the rest). So a good map (or your own GPS) is a must.
If you like animals, you will find plenty of cats in many public places (e.g. Meteora, Delphi, Papigo etc.). You will find very friendly pigeons in the parliament plaza, Athens. There are "community dogs" in Athens which you can pet (they are very relaxed).
