I would LOVE to go to Greece. I don’t have a ton of places I want to travel to (I know, this astonishes people), but Greece is the #1!

Beautiful!!! I’ve never been to Greece, but it is WAY up high on my list! My parents took a vacation there eight years ago, when I left for college, and they STILL talk about it :-)

that picture of the dog kind of makes me sad. Doesn’t really look like its “sleeping” but i’m going to assume it is and be happy! ha

I don’t know what the story is behind that dog. And I am not a pet person, but Oh-Em-Gee that dog makes me sad. I hope someone loves him and he’s not a stray

15 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 29, 2010

Athens has a huge stray problem. There are thousands and thousands of stray dogs and cats all over the roads. It is very sad!

Reply

16 Laura April 29, 2010

And scary- when we were travelling and stayed there, there were PACKS of dogs running around the streets… but there was the sweetest scrawny cat who sat on the wall next to us when we had our first meal. Greek cats DO NOT like being offered calamari! Good times!

I love that picture of you standing in front of the great landscape taking a picture. It’s like a bright GLOW in the middle of the beautiful landscape! :D

That stray dog makes me sad… I wonder what happened to it? :(

I am not a blog person. That said, I discovered your blog accidentally today while image searching and it’s love-at-first-sight. I instantly sent a link out to all of my friends and family gushing about the healthy, body-imagey, fun tips, great insights you have on here. THEN, you posted pictures of Greece (I’m going for the first time in 3 months!) Hook…line…and sinker. I’m in.

24 Laura April 29, 2010

Ooooohhh… thats going to be hot- in July!! Be sure to take lots of cool, thin clothes- I hope you manage to go up to the mountains around Delphi- its stunning there :)

Reply

25 Kiks April 30, 2010

Thanks for the heads-up! Yes, the weather situation is always good to know… ever since I took one sweatshirt to Ireland in May! Guess what I was wearing in every picture? ;) Delphi is on the itinerary!! And baklava!! :)

28 Jen April 29, 2010

Oh, what a dream! I would love to go to Greece. I actually teach a unit on Greece to my third graders, and I am going to show them your pictures. They will LOVE it!

29 Rebekah @ runtrackmind April 29, 2010

Beautiful idea! I was offered the chance to go to Greece once years and years ago but turned it down. Was I crazy???!! Thanks for sharing your pictures.

30 Adrienne April 29, 2010

I am DYING to see all of those ruins and great sculptures and buildings..I love mythology….(le sigh)
I must admit though, seeing Esprit and McDonalds kinda jolts you back to reality non?!

I miss Greece! There are SO many stray dogs, not shocking that you photographed and posted one!

Athens is just such a beautiful place! Even that dog is simply gorgeous :)

Reply

46 Tracy April 29, 2010

The dog has on a collar, so hopefully he’s not a stray. Yay! I was sad, too, until I noticed that!

Reply

47 Lisa April 29, 2010

Gorgeous. I wanna go.

Reply

48 Laura April 29, 2010

Yeeey! Greece! The Greeks tend to do the ‘old fashioned’ thing of letting their dogs run about free outside- so hopefully most of them aren’t strays, in case any one is worried. I was more concerned about how they treat their donkeys ;( I love going to Greece- I’m planning to go back again this year- I have quite a few Greek friends from uni. Where else did you go apart from Athens? My favourite time was when I went island hopping one summer- staying in places like Crete/Santorini/Naxos- great weather (coming from a Brit!!), great culture, history, sights and people. + if you ever go back that way, Turkey is amazing too- just definitely take Eric with you as your chaperone!!! Thank you for reminding me of an amazing time :)

52 Rachel April 29, 2010

Ahh…this is just too perfect. It just so happens that on this very day one year ago I was landing in Athens with my two very best friends for a month long adventure in Greece!! Honestly, changed my life. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the country, the people, the food, everything! It’s a must on anyone’s bucket list – without a doubt. Where else did you go?

53 Allison April 29, 2010
