Our road trips through the Greek countryside took us past some really fascinating places. At times it felt that we had been lovingly enveloped by sunshine and I was mesmerized by the colors of the waves crashing on the coastline. Other times it felt as if we had entered the heart of the Earth. We had been swallowed by the very forest itself and it was silently leading us up and down, and in and out her winding landscape. There was no tell-tale whoosh or dramatic sound to alert us to this. Just an overwhelming feeling of peace and stillness that makes you look up from whatever you were doing or stop whatever you were staying and smile.
