Greece, Travel and Adventure

Run to the Hills

I’m about to get picked up by my Aunt Renee, but I wanted to share a little of my excitement with you! We are taking a roadtrip up into the mountains of Greece today. There’s a tiny village called Vervena that sits right on a mountaintop where distant members of our Greek family still live. I am so excited to really discover my “Greek roots”.

My parents visited Vervena in May and said it was a ghost town. It’s so remote that most of the residents move down into Tripoli or Athens for the year and just return to the cool elevations during the hottest parts of the summer. Hopefully, the town will feel a little more alive now. Stay posted!
