Hi, I can't see any similar threads but if anyone else finds one will be happy for the links! As I work as an IT Contractor (see how long that lasts after IR35 changes, but that's another matter) I tend to finish for Christmas for a 'furlough' period. As my wife won't finish for Christmas until around a week later I've used those extra days to go record shopping (mainly) and a bit of sightseeing solo over the last couple of years - 2017 was Berlin, 2018 was Amsterdam. Had a great time in both places. Have got the green light to do the same thing again this year and whilst the easy option would be to go back to Amsterdam - had a great time, loads of shops, selection more to my taste than Berlin (more rock / indie etc than dance though I do like a bit of Electronica e.g. Boards of Canada, Stereolab etc), shops were closer together - I've seen a couple of things pop up in research that suggests Athens (Greece, not R.E.M. home turf!) could be a decent trip with some decent shops to dig through over the course of 3 or 4 days (likely fly out on a Monday and back on a Thursday so 3 nights, 2 full days of shopping). Anyone got any good recommendations, or done similar before? The fact that it would be a few degrees warmer temperature wise doesn't hurt either. Am also toying with Barcelona for the same reason. Thanks!
