I started my holiday with three days in Athens. Usually, just a stopover before going to the islands, but Athens called me to stay. I met some fantastic people, traveled back in time to Antiquity, and immersed myself in ancient mythology and ancient herbal medicine while lingering amongst the plants and ancient ruins. Olive, bitter orange, bay laurel, carob, prickly pear, fig, mulberry, pine, oak, cypress, honeysuckle, dandelion, rosemary, basil, rose geranium, wild sage & thyme, and mountain tea (Sideritis plant genus) became my friends. I was bewitched!
