The Return of the Wanderer

Athens part II

The completed map

It's dumping rain here in Athens, but it just let up for me enough to make another trek back up to the Acropolis. The second time I was able to take it all in and reflect about the last two months of travel. It has been an amazing time of self-discovery, historical education and good partying.

I feel at home in Athens now. It's nice to come back to a city for a second time and know the way around, know people working at the hostel, and be the guy who's been here before to the other fresh faced travellers. It's kind of fun to have two months full of stories of cities I've been to, people I've met and things I've seen.

There are things that have changed the way I see cultures, life and my faith. I no longer value some things and value other things much more. Hospitality, friendship, and love for the spontaneous are a few of the qualities I would like to foster more back in America.

I'm ready to go back home, and I'm grateful for the miles behind me and the many more ahead.

Thanks for journeying with me...

Hi Jeremy, must seem like it has been a long time that you have been gone. Here it seems not so long. Come for dinner when you get back. I know Roger would love to have conversation with you about your trip. It has been fun reading all your adventures as you went along. See you back here soon. Gail and Roger

Your Lightpostfilms.com email and website are dead! How am I supposed to wish you a happy birthday when you go hiding like that?? A little internet search found this page, and it looks like you've had a fantastic trip! I'd love to hear about it more, and if you email me I'll send you the email I TRIED to send earlier.
