Greece is the Way We are Feeling.

After months of saving, weeks of planning, and hours of flying, we finally arrived in Athens Greece! It was only a matter of time for me to fulfill my dream of visiting this marvelous city, where history, myth, and legend are all intertwined.

I have always found Greek Mythology to be quite bewitching: Pandora unleashing mankind’s weaknesses from a forbidden box, the Minotaur wandering the halls of an endless labyrinth, and Persephone being abducted by Hades and dragged to the underworld. These stories have always held such wonder to me that I had to visit the home of their birthplace.

What I didn’t expect was to find just as much magic in the true history of Ancient Greece. Visiting the Parthenon, Meteora, Akrotiri, and Knossos Palace with their enduring and miraculous construction, I now hold that same wonder to the actual people who created these timeless stories.

This was just our first night in this beautiful country and what better way to spend it than at The GB Rooftop Garden Restaurant and hotel. We watched the sun set and cast a luminous glow over Athens and the Acropolis all the while eating a delicious, authentic Greek dinner. This night is truly one that will live on forever in my memory.

Stay tuned for more of mine and Daniel’s trip to Greece.
