    I’ll start.

    We have a two week trip to Greece planned for September. We are going to spend two days in Athens, four in Corfu, four in Santorini and two more days in Athens before we head back home.

    We are also kicking around a week long trip to Utah in the Spring, to hike around Mt. Zion.

    In 2021 we have a wedding in Mexico, but we are trying to fit in trip to Stockholm and Helsinki.

    Life is good.

    Life hack: you or your wife start leading the international travel group for your respective schools. Free trips.

    That said. 1 kid checking, but have Germany, Italy, Switzerland booked over 10 days next summer.

    Two days in Athens is perfect. You’ll definitely want to give yourself the buffer of one day in Athens before your return flight leaves in the event something happens with your ferry.

    So one day in the front end, one day on the backend. Go to the acropolis as soon as it opens.

    Was in Greece for 2 weeks in October, Santorini for 3 of those days. Definitely do a boat tour around the island day 1. Then figure out which areas you liked best and go to those the remaining days.

    we researched this a bit, realized it will take 2 trips or a full month to do everything we wanted.

    also. Australia scares me.
