In May 2016 I visited Greece with my fiancée, and we found more beauty in the countryside than we had anticipated. We took a ten day trip, and explored as much as the country as time permitted starting in Athens. From here we rented a car and drove through the Pindus Mountains with stops in Delphi, Thermopylae, Meteora, and the Vikos–Aoös National Park and Zagori region. At the end of our trip, we flew to the island of Santorini for a few days before returning home.

Here are some photos I took on our trip.
