Ibn Battuta was a Moroccan scholar who traveled the medieval world. One of the greatest quotes he left us with is “Traveling — it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” As an avid traveler myself, I truly have encompassed the feeling of breathtaking views that leave my mouth with no words to say in the moment. My previous blogs, and future blogs embody the experience of travel, and allow me to share my opinions and knowledge of various locations with you all.
One of the most stunning places I’ve traveled to is Greece. There’s nothing like taking a bite of a mediterranean meal while looking out to a great view of blue water, rugged mountains, and tranquil beaches. If you’re planning a trip abroad, let it be Greece.
