When you visit Greece for the first time, don’t be surprised if you find yourself wondering if those Greek myths were actually true stories. While you hop between islands, you can imagine how Poseidon rose, usually in fury, from the depths of that sapphire water. You begin to relate to Odysseus’s desire to just luxuriate for 20 years on a white-sand-beach island. And it becomes very clear why the gods, Demi-gods, and oracles chose Greece as their primary residence! Oh–and those fresh olives, feta and grappa … definitely food fit for Spartan battalions!
