Athens: Day 7

Day 7: My final day in Athens, that I wasn't particularly looking forward too. I'm not keen on shopping that isn't done behind a computer or phone screen. However, Athens has the most beautiful shopping district and I didn't mind as much going and having a leisurely wonder around the shops. I headed to Ermou, …
