Wondering Why We Ever Go Home: Greece, 2007


Thar be Centaurs!
YARRRRGH!
So, from the trip I took 15 months ago, I've finally gotten all the journal entries posted.

See the "greece" tag for all entries related to Greece.

I haven't made a post yet about how the trip itself went. Sure, I hinted at it, and I did post all the fully unedited entries from the trip (some of the grammar is atrocious, but I left it entirely unedited), but I didn't really talk a lot about the entire thing.

While I might write a bit more over time about what I saw and did, and while I might post some more pictures, for now, those of you who didn't get a chance to read all of it might find it cool to slip back through the old entires.

Sights I missed:
  • The ghostly reenactment of Marathon that occurs each night
  • The plain of Marathon itself
  • Sparta
  • The theatre at Epidaurus
  • Delos
  • Olympia
  • Brauron (sorta: I was there, but not "there", ya know?)
  • Wherever the "Centaurs this way" sign led
  • Tasting "The Liquid Food Experience"
  • The Cave of St. Dionysus on Mt. Olympus
  • The monestary of St. Barabra
Clearly, I must return.
