Since the economic and civil unrest in Greece began a few years ago I've been quite keen on getting to Greece to explore. Curious to see a country after a somewhat unprecedented event in our modern times, my mind was wondering how such a wonderful country would bounce back after and during tough times.
Please enjoy this short photo essay on the beauty and a bit of grittiness of Athens & Santorini.
So in the end, we witnessed a country that is in a transformation and trying to find it's former glory. With unemployment hovering 24% it felt good to spend some money there and help the local economy. As usual during our travels we do our best to spend our money in local businesses and avoid paying our euros to large corporations. Seemed a bit more appropriate this trip more than ever.
