Spring Break rolled around and I was looking forward to spending it on a beach somewhere, anywhere, with my friends. Unfortunately, my parents had other ideas. Instead of going with my friends, like a normal teenager, they took me along on their vacation in Greece. At first I was totally bummed, I mean who wants to spend Spring Break with their parents, even if it’s a Greek vacation?
Thank my lucky stars for the Greek travel guys. My folks use them all the time when they have to go overseas on business or whatever. Anyway, they turned what I thought was going to be an embarrassing bummer-vacation in Greece, to utter amazeballs! They actually took time to seek out activities and sights that I would be interested in. Plus, the hotels we stayed at were wicked-nice; with arcades and awesome swimming pools and best of all, there was normal food that I would eat–meaning, non-gourmet junk. It seemed like the travel agent went out of his way to make sure I enjoyed our Greek vacation.
We started out in Athens, which surprised me because I thought it would be all museums and ancient ruins. While there were plenty of those, there was also horseback riding, an ice-skating rink, and even paintball! My vacation in Greece was turning out okay, after all!
Then we went to Crete, where there were the coolest beaches in the world–and a really cute guy my age! In fact, he only lives two states away from me back home, and we still keep in touch. The other awesome thing about Crete is the shopping. OMG! I had a blast shopping! I have to admit it, my Greek vacation was the best ever. I am so glad my parents made me go.
