Robert Irvine and Gail Kim's Honeymoon Scrapbook
In Athens, Greece, Robert and Gail took in the best sights this capital city had to offer. They booked a guided tour of the ruins of the Parthenon, a temple to the Greek goddess Athena, which sits atop the Acropolis.
On a worldwide tour in preparation for the London summer games, the Olympic cauldron made a quick stop at the Parthenon on the same day Robert and Gail visited the site. "We had perfect timing to see the Olympic flame and meet the runner who was passing the torch," the couple said.
When in Greece ...
... eat as the Grecians do. Robert and Gail took advantage of local delicacies by indulging in simply grilled octopus. This rustic dish was flavored with Greek olive oil and a touch of herbs. Give octopus a try by cooking up Robert's light and fresh octopus salad.

No trip to Greece is complete without an authentic gyro, a hearty sandwich built on pita-like bread with vegetables, seasoned meat and a brush of yogurt-based tzatziki. Robert waited at a made-to-order gyro shop to make sure he grabbed one before the vacation ended.
Robert and Gail rented a sailboat and took in the city views from afar. Of their offshore adventure, the newlyweds admitted, "We sailed and had the most romantic time."
Drinks With a View
Topping off the day with a cold Greek beer, Robert and Gail watched the sun go down over dinner in Santorini.
