Olive trees in Greece

Cds 2015 10 17 17 56 37
You cannot go anywhere in Greece without seeing an olive tree. They grow in the middle of the sidewalks in Athens, in people’s gardens, and in Olive Groves all over the landscape.

I found this particular olive grove just outside Vagia, a small village on the island of Aegina. There were probably about 20 olive trees – neatly spaces apart and well maintained.

It looks like the perfect spot to take a bottle of local wine, some cheese, a book and a blanket. Although I am sure that would have resulted in a grumpy landowner.

But still, a lovely spot to spend a few minutes.

The best camera…

They say that the best camera in the world is the one with you. I took this shot using the panorama feature on my iPhone. This is the little harbour in Vagia, Aegina. Vagia is a tiny town where we spent a few nights. If we liven in Athens we would be very tempted to buy a holiday house in Vagia and use it as a base to travel around the island.

Temple of Olympian Zeus

Lois and I (quite literally) stumbled upon this temple while walking from the Olympic Stadium to the Acropolis. The Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens was build around 6 century BC.

If you look in the far distance, you can just make out the Acropolis on the left of the main columns.
