Athens, Greece


athens6.jpg

September 2004 - I was given the opportunity to travel to Athens, Greece on business in order to help support a new beta install that was happening there. I jumped on the opportunity in order to take advantage of the any free time that I would have to see the local sights. I ended up working long hours and only had two days out of ten to do some sightseeing, but it was well worth it. These pictures are from the day that I spent walking around Athens.

Greek Islands


greekisl8.jpg

September 2004 - One of my free days on a business trip to Athens, Greece was spent on a boat with two colleagues touring three of Greece's numerous islands. The all day tour included the islands Poros, Aegina, and Hydra. Although all of the islands were nice, the tour didn't allow nearly enough time on each to experience all they had to offer. I did manage to learn of some of the cooler places that I need to visit on a return vacation trip when I have more time.
