Flag of Greece  , Cyclades,
Sunday, June 19, 2005

Greece has always been a dream destination of mine. The white stucco windmills,the white houses with blue doors and windows,the sunset,the lazy cats and the Mediterranean Ocean,those are very unique beauties where only can be found in this wonderful country.

The colors of blue and white are everywhere in Greece. On one hand,blue represents the sea and it symbolizes protection (as in the
blue-eye amulets used to ward off evil), while white symbolizes purity and the clouds in the sky. In this 8 days tour I had been to Bahrain, Mykonos Island, Santorini and Athens. In the first night I stayed in Bahrain, which it was my first time to be in the Middle East!

To me, my impression of Bahrain is ... very special. I like the style of the buildings, the music I heard in the plane and the warm and friendly people I've met along the trip. Also, I am totally obsessed with the beauty and style of the Islamic architecture which is so unique and special that makes me think of being brought into a fantasy world!!! I haven't been to any place like this before. It somehow reminds me of a favorite animated film I watched when I was small - Aladdin. Bahrain and the Middle East are awesome places and they look like very much a "fantasy" world to me.

The following day, the tour took me to Mykonos Island.
Mykonos is considered one of Greece's most popular tourist destinations. Its whitewashed houses, a sample of Cycladic architecture, its picturesque cobblestone paths, its nearly four hundred churches and its wonderful breaches all constitute the island's trademark.
