Time Travel to Athens the Ancient City

This post was originally written for my old travel blog Dream Explore Wander.

So last night I watched this movie called Looper (with the very hot Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the handsome Bruce Willis) and it was about time travelling. Very good movie I think.

Always wanted to time travel. Since I’m a huge Anglophile, I would go back to either the Victorian era or the Tudor period. Can’t really decide between meeting Henry VIII or Queen Victoria.

Then it came to my mind, I did time travel! This Summer, to Athens.

Well, besides the very modern metro system they have, the city itself is completely ancient. I love the fact that they have done such a great job of keeping the realness of it. I saw so many artifacts and the names, oh I love the Greek names, in which I have trouble pronouncing for most of it. The Acropolis, Erechtheion, Olympeion, Parthenon…and I will stop here before I get tongue tied.

Though it was scorching hot and I promised myself to never return in the Summer, I had such an amazing time (and seriously sore feet) exploring the city and its history. Three days there was definitely not enough and there were still many things left unseen for me. My homework is to return to this ancient city again.

So here is my time travel shots of the ancient city Athens.
