Count your blessings, name them one by one.
My heart is overflowing with gratitude and awe, as I sit at home this morning reflecting on a trip that has been life changing. Travelled 8000+ km to see some of the most unbelievable sights, eat some of the most delicious food, and fell in love with a vibrant culture that reaffirmed so many truths about humanity for me. 🇬🇷💙 🏛
Now, time to take this inspiration and turn it into some art! Lots on the horizon, can’t wait to share what we got cooking up 🎶
Standing 277 meters above sea level, #Lycabettus Hill (sometimes spelt Lykavitos) is the highest point of Athens. Although a beautiful walk up via a circular path, it will be a test of endurance and a challenge in summer.
The #view from Lycabettus Hill is best enjoyed at #sunset whilst waiting for the lights of the #Acropolis , Temple of Olympian Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium and Ancient Agora to come on. You will also be reminded that Athens is surrounded by sea with spectacular views across the #Aegean .
At the top of the hill you will find the Greek whitewashed church of Agios Georgios (St. George) and all are welcome to enter. The viewing platform in front of the church provides sprawling views of #Athens , stretching out to the city’s coastline. A cafe is open for breakfast and lunch.
*Arrive in time for sunset *Lycabettus Hill is located in the suburb of #kolonaki and is a great area to explore before or after your visit here *If you decide to take a taxi, it can only take you so far up the hill. You will need to walk up a significant amount of stairs for the remainder of the way
So grateful for each year that brought many ups, downs, tears but much growth, laughter, adventure and unspeakable joy. You make me better, @ryn_gnzlz. Thank you for being the incredibly kind and loving human being you are and for standing by my side through it all. Cheers to 4 years and so many more to come 💜
