• The Top Six Sites to Visit in Central Greece

    As our family witnessed during our trip to Greece, the country is filled with lots of interesting archaeological sites and museums. While many cultural sites are located in the Macedonia region, the largest of the nine geographical regions, quite a few can also be found in Central Greece, the most populous region. When we were in Central Greece, we explored several places in Athens, the country’s capital. However, the one I was the most excited about seeing was the Acropolis, one of Central Greece’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Acropolis is home to the remains of a collection of ancient buildings, including the Parthenon, Erechtheion, Temple of Athena and Propylaea…

  • Six Must-See Cultural Sites in Greece’s Macedonia Region

    Do you ever find yourself wondering about the culture and history of Greece? If so, consider planning a trip to this intriguing Mediterranean country, which is known as the birthplace of Western drama, Western literature and much more. When our family went to Greece, we visited five of the nine geographical regions. And, among the ones we visited was the Macedonia region in the Northern part of Greece.

    Why Fort Collins, Colorado, Is A Cultural Foodie’s Dream Town

    What cities would you put on a list of great food towns in the United States? Chicago, Illinois? Nashville, Tennessee? Austin, Texas? While these cities are worthy of being included, after our family’s recent trip to Fort Collins, Colorado, we think this friendly, mid-sized college town should also be on it. In fact, thanks to the different cuisines (e.g., Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Italian, French, Greek, etc.), not to mention desserts (e.g., donuts, ice cream, cupcakes, etc.), that we ate during our time in Fort Collins, I think the town is a cultural foodie’s dream. I’d visited two other cities in Colorado years ago, but I had never been to Fort…
