My October weekends have been busier than usual. Filled with new food and music and familiar sports, it has been a fun month.
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
Sometimes my favorite vacations involve simple relaxation. Such was the case when my family recently spent a long weekend at my sister's lake house in Watervliet, Michigan. It was an unusually busy summer for us, but we finally scheduled a weekend where my sisters, their husbands, my father and I could have some family time.
