In June we celebrated our youngest son’s graduation from college with a family trip to Greece. It was a wonderful time – getting back in touch with one another after a busy year apart, discovering Greece’s rich history and archaeological sites, enjoying meals, and making new friends. Here are a few more photos from our time together.
Graduation: University of Denver. Congratulations Marshal!
Dinner with Shelby, me, Anne and Marshall. Next stop, Greece!
On our first full day in Athens, we explored the Acropolis, Parthenon, New Acropolis Museum, and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
The next day we toured the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus in the morning
In the afternoon we visited Mycenae, including seeing the Beehive tomb and the Mask of Agamemnon
On our fourth day in Greece, we visited Olympia, where the Ancient Olympic Games began in 776 B.C.E.
Later that day we also stopped in Delphi, where we saw the Temple of Apollo and Treasury of the Athenians.
Our last sightseeing day took us to the Pinnacles of Meteora, an incredible UNESCO Heritage Site.
We had a wonderful trip, made all the better by the people we shared it with.
Following our guided vacation on mainland Greece, we took a post-trip extension to the Cyclades island of Paros.
