There’s a song that says it’s never cold in Greece. That’s not quite true of course! This week it was pretty cold actually and it even snowed! If you’re following me on Instagram you’ve probably seen my snowy pic already.
Nevertheless, the sun is never far. In face, sunny days far outnumber cloudy and rainy days any given year. So, on such a sunny and warm day, the National Garden in Athens is one of the best places for a relaxing walk among the trees.
One of my favourite spots in the National Garden is the famous palm trees arbor, near the garden’s entrance at Amalias avenue. Well, they’re not actually palm trees. They’re called “Washingtonias” and it’s a kind of palm-like tree that can reach up to 25 metres in height. And if their name rings a bell, you are correct. They are named after George Washington, the historic US President.
