Ooooooooopah! (….that’s in Greek :) )

Sorry for the lack of blog posts the past month!  The internet over here in Athens has been super sketchy, so I didn’t want to overload it with my massive files.  Greece in one word…AMAZING.  The islands, the people, the food, the music, the culture….it’s absolutely wonderful.  I’ve been taking a photography class over here for the month of May and had the chance to travel to ancient ruins, beautiful beaches, and famous historical sites.  Our trip to Santorini was definitely a highlight, I’ll probably have to do a separate blog post for that alone.  If you ever get a chance to go there in your life…GO.  you need to see this place 🙂  Here’s a snapshot of my trip through photos (parts 2, 3 and 4 to come soon)….

Temple of Apollo in the Agora

The view from Mars Hill looking at the Acropolis

The oldest theater in the world

this thing was massive!

Ancient marketplace on top of the Acropolis..there were too many people around to get a really good shot, but this place was incredible

THE PARTHENON!

I really couldn't believe I was standing in front of it.

The Corinth Canal...3rd deepest in the world, bright blue, and insanely cool. People go bungee jumping off of here all the time

My friend/travel buddy Sara and I on the bridge over Corinth Canal

Lemon trees grow everywhere.
