When I told people that I would be going to spend over a month in Greece this past spring, I got some interesting responses. “Isn’t it dangerous right now? Will the ATM’s work? Aren’t there refugees? Is it safe?” I’ve traveled enough now to know you can’t pay attention to the media when it comes to travel safety issues. Often, the places portrayed as the most chaotic, are usually the most peaceful.
Also, I can’t imagine what it would be like to be forced to leave my home country, and I had hopes of helping and talking to any refugees I came across. I wanted to know their stories, hear about life from their point of view. Having been free to roam anywhere I please, I do not take this for granted.
I didn’t listen to the rumors. I didn’t listen to other’s worries. Packing my bags I headed to Greece, which has always held a special place in my heart.
Greece, I Love You
