Many of you may know, my heart is not only here in America but it is also in Greece. I have family in Greece. Both of my parents were born in Greece, in fact in the very same village! I feel blessed and I have always found it to be an honor to have family connections in Greece. Therefore, I am grateful to have learned to speak Greek fluently (I also read and write in Greek too) so I can carry on some of the best conversations with my family and friends over seas. I promise you to that I will add more photographs of my adventures in Europe so you may get to see what I see as well as the touristy place in Europe. I try to bring my camera whenever possible to capture all the delightful views of Europe’s gorgeous land!
I had the opportunity to attend a real authentic Greek destination wedding in the streets of northern Greece (near the northern border) and it was amazing to see!! There is soooooo much I love about these destination weddings in Greece! I love the way the bride walks with her family and friends up gorgeous cobblestone paved streets to meet her husband (their first look) at the entrance of the church as he is surround by his family and friends gathered around this exciting moment! The streets are filled with joy and excitement waiting for the arrival of the bride. Not to mention, the gorgeous weather to have the most perfect wedding! The views, YES the views are spectacular! Every home is decorated in beautiful clay roofs, huddled together along a mountain side. Here, they have a beautiful lake showcasing more the mountains.
These two have been waiting to get married. The day finally arrived. She looks stunning! We could not have been happier for these two to become one!
We decided to take a stroll up the winding mountains to get a better view of my parents village of Sklithro, Greece. Is’t it spectacular?! Every where you turn is another breathtaking mountain. The colors, oh the colors of these gorgeous mountains gets me every time! I have to literally pinch myself to really know that I am viewing these again!
As you see, the village is not as big as you might think. There are 2 maybe 3 roads leading into the village. The road on the farthest right used to be a river that was later converted into a road. Mind you, I have been traveling to this village for years, since I was a baby. It feels like a 2nd home to me, thus probably why it has my heart like America does.
