An Athenian Photo Diary

18th December 2016

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Athens and Delphi with my King’s College London classmates, as part of our Classical Greek Art and Archaeology module. We had an absolutely wonderful time, words cannot describe how amazing it is to see all of the things we’ve spent years studying in real life. Last year we went to Rome, which was equally amazing, but I’d never visited Greece at all until now, so it was a completely new experience!

I’m planning on writing individual blog posts about each day of the trip,Β because we visited so many museums, monuments and archaeological sites, and I have a ridiculous amountΒ ofΒ photos. Today’s blog post is a kind of photo diary of Athens (I’ll do a separate one for Delphi – those scenic views deserve all the attention), because I wanted to give a brief visual overview ofΒ the trip. We got to go on the Parthenon, which was definitely one of the highlights, alongside the AMAZING food. I’ve added a few doodles and annotations to the pictures to let you know what they are, because we all know that temples often look the same, am I right?! (worst Classics student ever).

Without further ado, feast your eyes on the beauty of Athens…

  • How stunning is this!

  • Aaah your pictures are making me miss Athens so much! I did a trip there when I was at uni – I did a month long course at the British School at Athens, half was spent in Athens, half travelling the rest of mainland Greece, and I loved it so much! I bet you had the best time, and your photos are brilliant πŸ™‚

    • Oh that BSA course sounds awesome! I wanted to do one of their summer schools, but don’t have the money at the moment… maybe one day! x

    Athens will always have a place in my heart for so many reasons! I love that there’s history around every corner and the people are so so friendly! Glad you had a great time, i can only image how exciting it must be to see everything you’ve studied brought to life!
