Photo: Sunset at the Parthenon in Athens, Greece

I have been furiously going through the images I took on my recent trip to Turkey and Greece to put on and I wanted to get a few more on the blog. I can’t begin to describe how amazing Athens was. I was such an interesting mix of ancient and modern.

You would think that, after having “seen” photos of a place that you have “seen” it, but I never imagined that the Parthenon, the crown jewel of the Acropolis, would be so much more impressive in person. Even while it undergoes restoration in the 21st Century while walking around the grounds, can still imagine what it was like in the 4th Century BCE.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
