In just over a month, I’ll be leaving my hometown of Cleveland, Ohio to spend a semester abroad in Athens, Greece. I’m incredibly excited to explore a corner of the world that is completely new to me and see what the city of Athens has to offer. I’ll be living in a Greek apartment building in the Pagkrati neighborhood, taking classes all over town (and field trips all over the country!), and attempting to learn and speak Modern Greek. I also probably won’t shut up about this trip from now until this time next year. I will make an effort to blog here weekly starting in September, although I will be traveling quite a bit. Feel free to follow along on my journey here!
