How many steps does it take to get to Greece? I know you all think I am totally obsessed with going to Norway- which I still am. But as the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy so bluntly yet confusingly states: sometimes you get diverted.
I am still planning a trip to Norway. I just am being diverted by going to Greece.....first. Over the Alaska day holiday weekend I met an influence that triggered my brain into action. Now everything I hear about Greece sounds fantastic, I get excited when I see a movie that is set there or books that even mention greek culture. I am googling things that I didnt even know existed. And attempting to pronounce landmarks and island names.
Although it cant be as bad as attempting to say: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, dont worry I cant pronounce it either and dont wish to hurt myslef trying, a town on the island of Anglesey in Wales, England. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llanfairpwllgwyngyll
And the dolphins, there are dolphins appearing to me everywhere! Mostly in movies, but magazines, a book, on a randoms persons t-shirt, even in the form of kitchen magnets they find a way to appear, and they have been playfully swimming through my dreams. Is it a sign? A sign I must watch the intro to hitchhikers guide to the galaxy far too much. Stinkin special features with the sing along bonus track....
This sounds all too familiar as well; since this is what happened before I took my trip to Austrailia in 2004. This mad rush- which is good before taking a trip, because you dont really want to go somewhere you are not fanatical about, that soaks into the pores of your eyeballs and you get oh so excited to go there to encounter it for yourself.
Now I cannot stop thinking about Greece. And this darned magazine isnt helping matters any, its gives these awesome links to research institutes such as this Ionian dolphin project:
Doesnt this look just a little too inviting?
For tonight I will focus on finishing up reading the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy (fantastic book by the way) then as I look around for the others, I may find myself somewhere on an adventure in Greece....
to be continued......
