It’s hard to believe that just a little over 2 1/2 years ago I was in Greece. At the time, I didn’t have a blog so the memories were not recorded like my upcoming travels are about to be. Because of this, I wanted to pay tribute to the amazing time I had there.

In a month and a half, I spent most of my time in Athens doing research on how media influenced citizens’ views on the financial crisis their country is experiencing. We lived in a beautiful apartment right in the Plaka district, with easy access to everything. We also had the wonderful Professor Taso Lagos who is from Greece and gave us the full inside scoop on the city and people. On the weekends we traveled to several islands including: Santorini, Naxos, and Aegina. Our group also had the special privileges of seeing the village Taso grew up in, as well as attending his traditional Greek wedding, experiences I didn’t take lightly! Overall, I hope this trip can match up to the interesting people, wonderful food, and overall beauty I found in Greece.
