This past summer (2014) I travelled to Greece. I originally did not plan to go to Greece I just bought the ticket last minute. I knew I would be going to Europe so it worked out pretty well! I am so glad I decided to go to Greece! It was amazing. The first day I was there, actually within minutes of getting off the bus from the airport in Athens, I was lost. I have absolutely no clue how the Greek language works! So after several attempts to ask for directions, I ended up walking to my hostel and almost passing it! I just happened to stop and tie my shoe and I looked over and saw it. Had this not happened I would have definitely kept walking! It was so hot and humid outside so I was glad to get inside. Also the hostel I was in had a patio area with one of those water mister things.That was a life saver! the entire time I was in Athens it was above 40 degrees Celsius!
I absolutely love seeing different places and learning about the history behind such beauty. Greece is a great place to see ruins and beautiful architecture. One of my favourite places was the Acropolis. The Acropolis is a hill that sticks out of Athens. On top of that hill is the famous Parthenon and other temples and ruins. It is simply stunning, and with a beautiful view to match, if ruins and buildings aren’t your thing.
Even the water was warm! I am a baby for cold weather and cold water, and I never had to worry about that once in Greece. When I returned to Spain after visiting Greece I was actually thankful that Spain was cooler. Keep in mind this was in August, so it was still pretty hot 🙂
This is just a quick post, I will have more details about Greece soon!
