A Bit of Greece!

Long time no see! I know it seems like I’ve dropped off the face off the Earth, but not quite—I’ve been in Greece! My dad’s side of the family is Greek, and they organized a huge family reunion (150+ people) on the island of Crete. It was absolutely amazing and I already can’t wait to go back. Crete is the biggest island of Greece and sits in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. One of the highlights of the trip was hiking through the Samariá Gorge (I may dedicate a whole post to the topic later). It was really long and really challenging, but very beautiful.

We also visited Athens, where I of course got to see the Acropolis and other ancient ruins. While seeing the ruins was amazing, the city was extremely hot and I was sad to see that there is graffiti and abandoned buildings everywhere. It seems like the economy is doing okay in Crete, but not so much in Athens.

I’m hoping to be able to post more frequently now that I’m back, but I also just got a new job which is taking up a lot of my time! Hopefully I’ll be back to reading and reviewing books very soon.

In the meantime, take a look at some pictures from my trip!
