Wake Me Up in Olympia!

Woke up early morning to a traditional Greek breakfast, before heading out to explore Olympia, where the first Olympic took place. Maybe it was the tour guide, but this was my favorite tour on the mainland. I checked out the local museum, which had such amazing art pieces that were beautiful! I then headed to see the ruins of where the Olympic took place, where the players trained, The Temple of Zeus and I got a chance to run on the actual track field where it all took place!

After the tour was over, I got lunch in the city of Olympia and went shopping for goodies. We were headed to the city of Delphi, but on the way we also made a few quick stops. Our first stop was 

for a quick dip in the ocean, about a 10 minutes drive from Corinthian Gulf. Then we stopped at this beautiful small town by the name of Nafpaktos. I enjoyed a cold glass of Frappe cappuccino and watched the sailboats, looking over a castle.

I’ve learned that in Europe, my favorite kind of locations are these adorable little towns, that are kind of secluded, quiet and relaxing. Normally close by the sea and have these Italy vibe to them and many small streets to explore like Sorrento, Capri and Venice.

haha so this is where they would place statues of the players who cheated and before people walked into the stadium they would spit on them! Lesson in life, don’t be a cheater 😉 IMG_4018
