My Mother Always Told Me I Ate Too Much Greece-y Food / by Alexis Fairbanks

Before I left for Greece I told myself I was going to start a travel blog.  I had big plans: pictures, words, more pictures.  But alas, I spent all of my time in Greece climbing things I wasn't supposed to climb, jumping off of things I wasn't supposed to jump off of, and eating copious amounts of souvlaki and gelato.  I regret nothing.  But now that I'm back and have a whopping three hours of spare time, I thought I'd make the dream a reality.  I'm not one for words, photography can do a much better job than I ever could, but before you jump straight to the photo gallery stick around so I can tell you about the next big adventure.  Tomorrow (July 1st) my brother Adam and I leave for a six week investigative journalism project studying climate change in the national parks.  We'll be visiting seven parks: Joshua Tree, Yosemite, Redwood, Olympic, Glacier, Yellowstone, and Zion.  As far as this travel blog goes, I'll stick to what I'm good at: photography.  You'll be happy to hear that Adam the creative writing major will be handling the words.  Check back here every once in a while to read about our discoveries, look at some (hopefully) pretty neat photos, and follow along with our sibling shenanigans.  But for now, enjoy photos from the past month in Greece.
