“Travels to a Different Time” : June 11, 1971 (New York and Athens): Up Up and Away! Three Chicken Dinners and Two Lunches Down the Hatch!

Up at 8:30, had a shower and fully packed at 9:30. At ten we were out the door in a cab to pick up a stew Brigitte who would be working our flight to Athens from JFK. To our surprise at the ONA terminal office we ran into Barb and her friend Marx who had just worked the flight back from Athens. The plane was not full so Mom and I had three sets to stretch out on and sleep. I ended up eating three chicken dinners and two lunches. Diary entry of Margaret Mary Stephen: The flight was not full so Robert and I had three seats. The flight was smooth with no turbulence and we slept most of the way. The crew absolutely spoilt us! The passengers seemed nicer that on our flight to Athens last year so it wasn’t so hard on the girls. Brilliant blue skies when we arrived. It was 5 am. When we had cleared customs and a bit early to phone our friends the Milagressis who we had met last year in Panormitis and stayed with last year on our way home from Athens. Our journey has started!
