It goes without saying that the Greek Islands have some of the most picturesque views possible but it is the ancient sites and cities that I’m dying to see one day.
Athens, home of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Olympia where the Olympics started, Mount Olympus where Zeus lived, Rhodes where the Temple of Apollo is found … the list goes on.
Greek culture had a huge impact on the Roman Empire and provided the foundations for Western culture today. Pretty bloody cool I’d say, and here’s a few reasons why the Ancient Greeks kicked ass!
They invented the theatre
They invented maths – Pythagoras, Euclid, and Archimedes, are still used in maths today … don’t ask me what they mean though!
They invented the word ‘Dinosaur’ … it means terrible lizard
They decided the sun was at the centre of the planets orbit, or more specifically Aristarchus of Samos did
They made prostitutes wear red lipstick … I’d be very misunderstood back in those days!
They started the Olympics
They told crazy stories about their Gods which are still told to this day, you all know who Medusa is don’t you … point proved!
