My Blog

I created a blog to keep tabs with my fellow Americans and share the study abroad experience with all those who are interested. Mostly composed with pictures, this blog will also include travel entities and general statues about my trip.

Anglo-French historian Joesph Hilaire Belloc once said "We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment"

Nafplio, Greece / Wine Tasting

Here's pictures from the trip to Nafplio including the castle tour, downtown pictures and 
the wine tasting tour for the international students at Deree!

Brief Castle Architecture History :
Based off of Venetian architecture; therefore it gave off a medieval Italian history vibe to the layout and design.  The town was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic, from the start of the Greek Revolution in 1821 until 1834.

 The crew!

 Nunu and Laluu :-)

 Went off by myself for a while *cough*(in search for the Holy Grail)*** to take pictures...........

 Climbed ahead of the group to snap some pictures and offroad exploring.

 This is the prison where the first President of Greece was held for 3 weeks. I can only imagine how the damp, cold stone got to his head during that duration of sentencing.
 The Mediterranean Sea!
 Walking towards our lunch, Aurora's pretty flowered hair.

 Downtown Nafplio!

 Exploring the older side of Nafplio after lunch.

 And on the otherside.. the Sea :-)

 The water's temperature was really cold at the time being that its winter season still however it was flawless and really refreshing.

 Here is a view of a wine cellar where we got a tour of how wine is made and stored. Really cute winery we got to experience.

 My Seattleite friend Aurora from Seattle, Washington!
 We got pretty cheesy after a while

 Agapimouuu Tassos had plenty of wine to spare.
