England: Leaching WiFi

We just arrived back in England. Tomorrow we head out to Oxford. The hotel we are staying at charges by the hour for internet service, so instead of paying their stupid fees I’ve got the laptop balanced on the window sill leaching off of an unsecured network. The B&B we’ll be staying at in Oxford […]

Delphi: The Oracle and Olive Stains

Today we visited the Temple of Apollo and the ancient monuments at Delphi. The modern day Delphi has only been in existence since the 19th century, when interest in the ruins of ancient Delphi began to increase in the archeological community. Russia, America, and France all expressed a desire to excavate the site, but in […]

Greece: To Delphi

Today we took a bus from Athens to Delphi, which took about three hours. As we left the bustling city of Athens and progressed further into the mountains the roads got more and more narrow. Our bus bounced over the pot-hole littered road, and on one side of us the mountain rose high into the […]

Greece: Futility and Panna Cotta

Today we visited the ancient Agora of Athens. While the Acropolis functioned as the primary location for all religious activities in ancient Greece, the ancient Athenians would enter the Agora for any number of reasons-ranging from the desire to work out in the enormous gymnasium, purchase goods at any one of the local shops, or […]

Greece: Flimflam and Silhouettes

Yesterday we walked all over central Athens. We went shopping, drank a few Nescafes, bought some souvenirs and spent the day quite leisurely. Athens is a strange place. From an archeological and historical viewpoint it’s one of the birthplaces of modern civilization. The ancient Greeks developed an organized society, they invented Democracy, they valued art […]

Greece: Beautiful Sights and Spicy Meats

We’ve experienced a bit of a culture shock after having traveled from Italy into Greece. In Italy it seemed like every Italian owned a well-trained, beautifully groomed dog that they brought with them everywhere they went. Most shops and restaurants don’t even bat an eye when a patron walks in with a puppy companion and […]

Rome: Strawberries and Madmen

I got suckered into buying stuff from a market again. Today we had planned to take it easy and leisurely stroll around the Pantheon and Piazza Navona before catching our flight out of Rome. When we got to Via Dei Fori Imperiali we saw that the street had been blocked off and some kind of […]

Rome: Belated Post

Hang on everyone, I’m gonna try to write a post while we’re in the air between Rome and Athens. I’m not a very good air passenger (I turn white at the slightest noise) so if at any point this become incomprehensible I’m sure that you’ll forgive me. I didn’t post yesterday because truthfully, I didn’t […]

Rome: Tired Blogger

Sorry, but I am way too tired to write up a proper post for today. We walked all over Rome, and then went to a jazz club for dinner. I have quite a bit to share, but I just lack the energy to write it up. Expect a normal post tomorrow night when we arrive […]
