Well, I'm back home safe and sound! I've actually been back for a few days, but unloading my pictures has been a night mare. I think my computer is having troubles unloading 1,717 pictures (true statistic - my parents nicknamed me the happy clicker for a very good reason!). I finally have some unloaded, but not all.
First, thank you guys for helping me figure out why there were no falafels and hummus to be found in Greece. It appears that they falafels and hummus or more Middle Eastern, Turkish versus Mediterranean, Greek. Guess that just means I need to go to Turkey now. ;)
And I did get the chance to try traditional Greek yogurt! (Though the pictures are amongst those that did not get unloaded. :( I really, really loved it! It was really sour and tangy (or in my dad's words, potent), but I love that kind of yogurt. It actually wasn't as thick as the Greek yogurt I get here - not sure why! But that was just the traditional Greek yogurt. I also had some at the hotels and it was more like what like what I get here - really smooth and thick and not as sour and tangy. I loved both kinds even though they were very different. I also got to try some Icelandic yogurt! Dare I say I like it better than Greek yogurt? Hmm, that would be kind of harsh to my dear Greek yogurt, so I think I will just say it was different but equally delicious. :)
So after a few night in Athens, we headed to the country side! Nafplio was the first country side town we stayed in and ended up being my favorite town in Greece!
Lunch was followed by an excursion to the beach. We didn't actually swim in it, but we just couldn't not go to the beach in Greece!
On a huge hill/small mountain next to Nafplio is this cool old castle:
We happily ate our ice cream while we walked around Nafplio. This pictures alone is why I loved Nafplio so much:
Have a fabulous week everyone and thanks for reading!
