I never thought my parents would say okay for me to welcome the new year in another country – actually miles away from my home country. But they said yes (happy dance!). So I flew from Manila to Athens via Scoot with my friend @rodelflordeliz , and we welcomed the new year in Athens.
Celebrating and welcoming the new year in another country is actually in my bucketlist. This made planing our trip a lot more exciting!
When the clock struck twelve everyone raised their phones to capture the Fireworks. 🎆 There were only two at that time. We were waiting for what would happen next. I guess, we went to the wrong side of Athens. 😀
We decided to follow the crowd and observe how Athenians welcome the new year.
It was 12:05. It was the first day of 2018. I was in Athens. 💓
