The Oracle at Delphi

Delphi was by far the most relaxing part of our trip for the simple reason that there isn’t a whole lot to do there.  We took the three-hour bus to Delphi on Thursday with two other girls from our hostel, Kathleen and Nicole.  They were also American students studying abroad (Copenhagen).  It has been such fun to meet people randomly like that, and the best part is that everyone we’ve met has been so nice.  And since most of the people we meet are also traveling all over right now, they have interesting stories, and their lives are similar to ours.  I worry sometimes that when I go home it will be hard to relay all my experiences to my friends and family because they’ve all been living their regular lives while I’ve been over here.  It’s not that I think my life is so much more exciting, it’s just very different from the daily routine back home.  So it was nice to meet other abroad students and travelers.

a tad bit disappointed

After Santorini and living in a real-life fairy tale for three days, we were a bit disappointed in Athens.  It’s such a huge city, really enormous.  We had four male roommates in our hostel again, one of whom had sleep apnea and snored like nothing you’ve ever heard.  The whole city smelled of some sort of urine/corn/bleach combination, and there’s really not all that much to do tourist-wise.  We made the most of it, though.

Santorini, part two

Santorini only got better on Sunday, which was October 22.  Maybe you don’t know this, but that’s my half birthday.  :)  It began with sun shining in our windows.  The air was warm and sweet-smelling when we went onto the porch before breakfast.  Definitely beautiful.

Santorini - the island of dreams

Santorini was by far my favorite place on our journey.  I am so glad we decided to go there, because it wasn’t in the original plan.  What a fabulous addition.

The beginnings of my Greek Adventure

First of all, I love Greece.  It is so beautiful and warm.  I have so many great memories from my time there that it is very unlikely I will be able to remember them all for these posts.  That being said, I will try to give a good account of my experiences.  I won’t put the whole trip in one blog, though.  That would simply be too long.  So I’ll start with our traveling experiences on the way to our first stop (Santorini) in this blog.
