Photographs van Greece, May 2014

We are going to Greece for the first time and we fall in love with that country, the sun, the sea and the people. This is certainly not the last time we visit Greece. But this trip is the most intensive with a visit to a lot of archaeological highlights of the country, from the Acropolis in Athens to Olympus in the Peloponnese, the imposing Mycenae and the oracle of Delphi. Fortunately at the end we decide to also take a few days really vacation, because we will definitely come back here more often.
Here all all the photographs of this journey that we use on the website.
