Happy New Year!

What better way to welcome in 2013 than with a grand adventure.  We started out New Year’s morning at the Springfield airport….in fairly good shape.


Short layover in Chicago…


And finally Athens!


Our hotel is at the foot of the Acropolis.  We’ve already learned a few Greek words from our guide, had a walk around the neighborhood, and we are headed out for our first Greek meal!  We’ll let you know how it goes….


Ready, Set, Go!

While the count down to the end of the semester and Christmas are on most people’s minds…13 of us have one more count down in place.  Twenty one days until we leave for Greece.  Yes, early on January 1st when I usually would be snuggled up in front of the fire watching the Rose Bowl parade instead I’ll be boarding a plane with Courtney Swan and 11 students for an adventure in Greece!  What a way to start the new year!

We’ll use this blog to keep friends, family, and colleagues updated on our adventures. So travel along with us as we start the new year in an ancient place!
