Sorry to disappoint you, but that is not the name of the next sun-splashed singing, dancing delight coming to a cinema near you this summer. It’s a brief summary of the last week of my summer vacation, which saw me romping around Athens’ monuments, restaurants, and open-air cinemas with my kids in tow.
Traveling with a toddler is a challenge under any circumstances. Add heat waves, time differences and long lines and it can be a recipe for disaster, as I learned when I brought 3-year-old Nico and 7-year-old Amalia to see the Acropolis. (It’s never too early for ancient monuments is it?)
Luckily, even these difficulties can be overcome with some Playmobil deities for the kids, a water bottle of rosé for mom, and a user-friendly taxi app. As a cold snap settled over New York City, Fathom helped me throw it back to summer in Athens with this article that was part of their Travel with Kids package. Read all my misadventures, and maybe pick up a few tips, here. I’m just mystified as to why they didn’t use the charming photo of Nico, above, to illustrate the article. Just makes you want to grab a three-year-old and get on a plane, doesn’t it?
