My last stop was the island of Santorini. I was a little hesitant about going to Santorini because of how popular it is. I’ve never liked touristy places; they never seem real.
But, let me tell you, I have never had more fun in my entire life. Santorini is magical and full of adventure, even if there are a lot of people there. And of course, the sunset in Oia is iconically Greek. I got to see it a few times and it never got old.
The Temple of Poseidon
Poseidon was the God of the Seas so it just makes sense that his temple just outside of Athens would be on a cliff overlooking the Aegean sea. The temple greatly contrasted with the Parthenon. There was only a few other people there which made it a much more humbling experience.
Sunset next to the temple was probably one of the most beautiful sunsets I have seen. The colors playing off of the ocean were simply magical. I felt as if I was looking out at a painting in front of me.
I have just returned from a life changing culinary journalism trip to Greece. I had the time of my life exploring, learning, writing, and of course eating. Be prepared to read many things about Greek culture, food, and my personal experiences in the country.
A Summer Update
Hello! As I have internet access for the moment, I thought that I would update on how summer is going. One word: Wonderful. So far this summer has been a blast and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Sometimes the campers can be troubling, but once you’ve managed to get through a week of horrible campers, you feel like you can take on the world! The whole experience has been just as rewarding as I remembered it to be. It’s so great to make strong connections with children that you only know for the week and to know that they have gained something from you. But of course I could never do it without all of my co-workers. They are gold. I love them all.
I think so far this summer I have learned that you may think that you’ve got God all figured out and what he wants for you. But in reality, you have no idea for what God has in store for you and your life; you can’t predict it, you can’t plan for it, you just have to hold on for the ride. And when you do, it is beautiful.
