Inspiration Around Every Corner

Today was a day of learning. We woke up early and went to begin our work with the Archelon project here in Greece. The program was very inspiring in the ways that it works to protect and save sea turtles and also very inspiring to meet the volunteers working from different parts of the world. Hearing the volunteers talk about where all they've traveled at such a young age made me feel like that's what I should be doing. I want to be somewhere helping better the world and exploring it at the same time. Also today we went to the museum of technology and science. A man explained to us each exhibit with such passion and drive, and it was very interesting to see how much he cared about the museum that he had worked so hard for. The only problem was that he was speaking in Greek very, very quickly. He had a translator but even the translator was having difficulty following him, because he was just spitting out all of the knowledge he knew by heart as fast as he could about the sciences and technologies discovered by the ancient Greek. We went back to our beautiful hotel and had a delicious yet very filling meal by the pool, laughed and have fun. Tomorrow we work more with Archelon, swim in the sea, and sail off towards Italy.
