I am a person that loves to travel around the world, and I am a passionate lover of world history. These two reasons are what drive me to save money and embark in travels that amaze me, and give me the opportunity to experience the beauty of Earth. Also, since playing a video game called “God of War” I have been enamored by the world of mythology. Summing these reasons, there is a place that has the qualities of great history, beautiful geography, an amazing cuisine and the born place of mythology. The place that I would love to visit is Greece, because it has the sums of these qualities mentioned above.
Greece has one of the most beautiful and complex geography in any country of the world. It is located in the southern portion of Europe, and it boasts the twelfth longest coastline of the world. Eighty percent of Greece consists of mountains, of which the great Mount Olympus is the highest in Greece. This country has a very vast collection of islands, which includes 2,000 of them. That alone, is a big reason to go to Greece because we have a lot to explore around this country, inside and outside.
History in Greece has been the reason of why this country is so amazing. It is the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games, political science, major scientific and mathematical principles, university education, and coinage. It is also a founding member of the United Nations. Greece has been home for the Persian Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Macedonian dynasty, and the Komnenos dynasty. Greece became independent in January 1, 1822 from the Ottoman Empire, which later was converted to a republic. Greece has been the birthplace for a lot of brilliant people like Socrates, Plato, Alexander the Great, and Archimides.
