Greece: Day 4
I’m officially mosquito food. I have about ten bites and that’s just in one day. Good times!
Today we left the beautiful hotel in Nafplion and headed west to Olympia. We saw the ruins of where the Olympic Games began. It was interesting to see the ruins and walk through where former Olympian’s competed.
After the ruins we went to town and into some museums. Lots of statues that are thousands of years old. It’s amazing to me that these still exist!
We had lunch in town and I had my first gyro! It was great! We went to our hotel and had some time to rest. We met up for dinner at 6:30pm and drove to a local olive farm. The olive farm had a lot of vegetables it grew as well as farm animals. Recently a friend said I was Snow White because animals seem to flock to me. Well the chickens, rabbits, goat, and ponies seem to come to me when I was around. I wish I could pet them all but I’m so allergic!
We enjoyed a glass of wine and some canapés when we entered a pressing room to listen to a demonstration of how olive oil is made. Then we tasted different types of infused olive oils. We wandered around the property and saw a on THOUSAND year old tree! It was beautifully lit up with lights.
We headed into the restaurant area for dinner and had a great meal. At the end we had a blast dancing to some Greek music. Today was jam packed and so much fun!!!
