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
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.
Ancient Corinthian wall decor
never did find out what kind of tree this was, but its awesome
The Temple of Apollo at Corinth...they had a lot of temples to Apollo, apparently. haha
The main road through old Corinth
the road through ancient Corinth
Sara and i out shooting in Athens...
We were out one afternoon in Syntagma Square in Athens, and saw a bunch of guys break-dancing on Parliament steps
these "worry beads" are sold everywhere in athens
Athens marina. This ship had a legit pirate's plank 🙂
Cloudy day at the marina
little square by our apartment
Welcome dinner for the class
Acropolis lit up at night
little kids play music for you while you eat, then demand money. sorta cute, mostly annoying after a month of it, haha.
