A month from now, the grand European adventure will draw to a close; a realization that seems scarcely conceivable when August feels only a few moments ago. Nevertheless, it’s rapidly approaching. The next few weeks hold many assessments in their grasp, from exams to papers to presentations, all aligning as the end beckons. With the return from Athens and the Greek countryside, this reality becomes all the more tangible; even now, my time abroad going from country to country while uncovering the ancient past feels like a dream, one that requires me pinching myself to ensure its validity. Look forward to a future post with the pictures from the various towns and cities visited within Greece, as well as the breathtaking views they revealed to me as I traversed the mountainous landscape.
