Greece, Adio

Greek salad

Five weeks is definitely not enough time to discover all of Greece, a country with hundreds of beautiful islands surrounded by amazing beaches. I have so many fond memories of my time in Greece and really feel as if I've broadened my horizons. It was my first time in Europe and I really got a feeling for ancient history and the different lifestyle and culture there.


Apart from discovering new places in Greece, here are the things I'd go back for:


1. I'd love to go back to Santorini again to have a glass of local wine and see the sunset and the light against the Cycladic architecture.


2. Corfu's Old Town is definitely worth another wander around, having a pita gyros and looking around the beautiful shops.


3. I would love to return to Ithaki's clear waters and stony beaches to have a nap in the sun after eating a Greek salad and drinking a carafe of the local wine.


4. The view of Athens from the Acropolis.


5. Crete's old capital, Hania, with its restaurants and beautiful artisans shops.

Awesome pics! Did you take them by yourself? I love taking scenery pics, also. I dream to go to Greece. Have you seen Mamma Mia? Good movie! The movie takes place on the enchanting Greek island of Skopelos (Kalokairi). Have you been to any other countries besides Greece? Do you have facebook?

Hi all, thanks for all comments.

hoahongsitka, Yes, I took all of them. Mamma Mia is such a fun movie. I am lucky enough to have been to quite a few different countries in different continents.
Have a nice day!

hey vietnamese god,

it's been a while since the last time i got updated from your blog. wow, what a coincidence, i was just in greece a couple of weeks ago, more exactly during christmas. this entry reminds me much of the time i was there. but 5 weeks of your trip is awesome. we spent there only 1 week.

happy Tet, btw!
