In 2019, my lifelong dream to see the ancient sites of Greece came true. I was raised hearing about the country’s magic, so arriving in Athens felt like a homecoming.
The people, the culture, the food, and the warm, salty Aegean Sea all felt like a natural fit. Most people spoke English, and the ones who didn’t had expressive hands like me, so communication was never a problem.
My husband and I wanted to make the most of our trip. What could we see here and nowhere else in the world? What most piqued our interest? What promised to move us? What seemed the most Greek?
