Greece: Athens and Delphi

We only had one full day in Athens and we decided to book a bus tour to Delphi.  It was an all day tour that took us to Mount Parnassus. It was a beautiful trip and we got to climb the mountain and see lots of archaeological sites. It is really a fascinating place- please go read the link because there is no way that I can do it justice in a paragraph. It was our anniversary and we had dinner in the restaurant on the top floor of our hotel overlooking the Acropolis!

Note: we were suprised to discover that our bodies have completely forgotten how to function in the hot weather!

    Isn’t the stadium in the third picture where they held the finish of the marathon in the 2004 Olympics?

    It’s cute that you think I would know something like that. Sounds logical though.

    Amazing scenery! I am glad you got to experience all of that. You had better keep your body ready for hot weather. It is getting hotter here by the day and you will be here SOON!! Love you, Mom

    I’m learning so much history from your blog!! I will always remember each time I cook with bay leaves now, that the winners at the Pythian Games received a wreath of laurel (bay leaves) picked in the Temple. I never knew that laurels were made from bay leaves. Can’t wait to see you, even though it will be for a brief time. Love you, mil

    You have now kissed the Blarney Stone and conversed with the Oracle at Delphi. Your European experience is hitting all the spots I learned in ancient history. The history was ancient, not me.
