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!

Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg April 29, 2010

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

Reply

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

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.

Reply

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

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!! :)

Honestly, I’m really jealous. Greece has been at the top of my Must Visit list for years. I’ll get there! I swear I will!

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!

Reply

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.

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?!

Reply

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

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