The Greek flag might be the prettiest of all the flags, especially flying on an island that is blue and white forever
I loved the street art in Athens, particularly.
But I found this beautiful piece on a Heraklion building at the ocean’s edge right across from the bus station, immortalizing Icarus for all time.
These little shrines are everywhere
made of every possible material and containing icons, candles and occasionally statuary. They’re sometimes quite big and grand
I saw so many different shrines along our road in Crete and wanted Corey to stop at every one so I could take pictures but we all know I wouldn’t have lived to write this post had I done that…
And speaking of driving, can we talk about the parking?
I mean, do whatever you want. Shade is the best. Obviously.
There aren’t enough words for Greece’s beautiful beaches
Or their Greek salads.
Americans could learn a thing or two about that cheese – > veggie ratio. And Corey was rapturous about the oregano.
Greece you’re lovely in every way. I can’t wait to see you again.
