  Welcome to my photo Album from Greece. When most people think of Greece, they only think of Athens Olympia and the Cyclades (Santorini, Mykinos, Delos, and other white washed islands). However, there is much more to Greece than those stereotypical travel destinations. In this photo album, I have tried to connect to the hidden side of Greece that few American tourists see. I have tried to capture the natural beauty of the country and sites that are known to many locals, but may be overlooked by the typical tourist. I would not do Greece justice though if I did not include the stereotypical destinations as well.

   I have split my galleries up by geographical regions. The Ionian Islands are the islands on the far west of Greece. Until a few years ago, only Corfu suffered from mass tourism. Though they are now on the tourist map, they are still not as traveled as the other, "more popular" islands. The Peloponnese is the large "Island" that sticks off the southwestern part of Greece. It was here that the Corinthians, Spartans, Argonots, and Olympians lived. This area should not be missed for its pure beauty, scenic coastal areas, and cities which reap of history. The Argo-saronic Islands are the four island stuck in-between the Argoid coast and Cape Sounion. Distinct from the mainland and other islands. Central Greece (Attica) has names that speak for themselves such as Delphi and Athens. Lastly the Aegean Islands are the islands most tourists head. Some of them such as Lesbos are untouched and maintain their tradition. Others such as Mykinos have been spoiled but have beautiful buildings.
