Ever since we got married, Wilson and I have put a pretty large emphasis on travel; we believe that great experiences trump material items. All last year, we toyed with the idea of going to Europe. The idea of Italy got thrown out, so did Paris, Greece, etc. As the year went on, it seemed less and less likely it was going to happen.
Early August, I hoped on google flights one afternoon, and, saw tickets to Greece for six hundred and fifty dollars round trip. I called Wilson, and, we booked that evening! We were going to Greece!
Wilson and I spent this whole fall planning our trip, looking up hotels, villas, tours, and great places to eat. When I am planning a trip, I love looking up other peoples’ travel blogs to see what they did-this is such a great way to find out tips and tricks.
Okay, day one friends!
Wilson and I flew out of Atlanta on Friday evening and connected in London to Athens, Greece. The longest flight was Atlanta to London, which was about eight hours. Also, we had a long layover in London, so we got out of the airport to spend the day in the city.
The next day, we were in Athens; and, we took a guided tour of Delphi, which is in Northern Greece. Nestled in the mountains of Greece, the town of Delphi is home to the Oracle, which is the most important shrine in all of Greece. Built for the Greek mythological god Apollo, Delphi was considered to be the center of the world during Mycenaean times (around 1400 years before Christ). Visitors came near and far to be guided in their future actions.
