I don't like museums. Maybe because I grew up in Greece and it was compulsory to go and visit museums and archeological sites since we were kids to learn about our inheritance. Or maybe because the museums we visited were not interactive enough and nobody explained to us what exactly was that we were looking at. Many years had to pass for me to change that perception of mine. I visited as an adult the relatively new Acropolis Museum in Athens. It opened its doors in 2009 and for greek standars, it is an architectural masterpiece with glass ceilings and floors! As one enters, after purchasing a ticket, has the chance to witness a travel back to history, the best way possible! The sculptures are placed by era and are so many you cannot get enough! I stayed there for hours, reading the caption in each and every one of them. Let alone, the visitor can learn about the greek history by watching a documentary in a hall in the second floor. And reaching the end of the toor, the one can enjoy amazing view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon sipping a cup of coffee in the veranda cafe of the museum! What else can anyone ask for a hot day like this? #acropolismuseum#athens

🇮🇸 Shipwrecked in Grindavík
The Hrafn Sveinbjarnarson III shipwrecked just off the coast of Iceland on 12 February 1988. A coastguard helicopter managed to save all eleven crew members but the vessel itself broke into three parts. We saw two parts and a propeller on our travels.
We're taking a break from our regularly scheduled Instagramming to share the latest episode of the trivago Podcast where we celebrate Pride month by talking about gay travel. We've got @grindr, @gaycities, and @roommatehotels on the show, and I talk about my rainbow-colored spandex. 🏳️🌈 (Link in the bio!)
