Update July 2016: I made it to Greece! We hit up Athens, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora and Santorini and it blew my mind – the people, the food, the culture, the history. I totally geeked out in the museums! If you get a chance, you simple MUST visit this amazing country!
There has been a lot of talk over whether now is a good time to visit Greece. While I can understand the various concerns, I can’t think of one reason why I wouldn’t want to explore the wonders and lustrous history that Greece has to offer.
My friends make fun of me for constantly re-reading my Penguin Book of Classic Greek Mythology, but since a young age, I have been captivated by tales of the Greek gods and heroes. While I definitely want to visit the beach islands like Santorini some day, I am far more captivated by the museums and ruins like the Parthenon, Delos and Delphi. I’m also considering doing my yoga teacher training course in Greece, so if anyone has any recommendations please let me know!
To keep me going until I finally make the trip over, I’ve curated a few photos of Greece from talented Instagrammers. Hopefully it will keep me motivated to get to this wondrous place sooner, rather than later, and inspire you to visit Greece as well.
A big thank you to the Instagrammers below who were kind enough to let me share their photos! I encourage you to take a look at the rest of their Instagram feeds for more beautiful pics. The beautiful photo above is from TravelCoffeeBook on Pixabay.
