Athens and Santorini have always pulled on my imagination like an insistent child annoying the shit out of his mother (remember when I used to do that mom?). The islands, the history, the views, the food… maybe running into a Greek god or two.
Starting tomorrow, June 16, I’m going to be realizing some of those long held dreams. Along with my girlfriend, her parents, and their family friends (thanks everyone), I’ll be spending 10 days in Athens and Santorini, and I couldn’t be more excited.
I have so many questions: when will inspiration strike me, how much food can I eat, will this help me do research for my current WIP (which is set on an island), will I get sunburned even though I have darker skin, is the water warm, will I have enough time for writing in the morning, how much feta cheese can I fit in my mouth at one time, will I become artsy and take some beautiful pictures, will anything I learn there be interesting to any of you?
I know that at least one of those questions will be answered (the feta one), and I’m confident that I’ll be able to answer the rest as well. You can follow along via my Instagram (on the right of the homepage) or on this blog as I hopefully get a chance to update it a few times during my travels.
And comment down below if you have any other questions you’d like me to try to answer while I’m there (trust me, I’m willing to try to find answers to some pretty weird and crazy questions).
See you there…
