Olympia

OMG you guys, I was so excited to check out the Archaeological Site of Olympia! Why?? It’s where the first Olympic Games were held. Wayyy back in the day. So it’s no surprise that this place is yet another one of Greece’s World Heritage treasures.

Random fact: athletes used to compete in the Olympic Games totally naked. Yikes! If that doesn’t motivate you to get in tip-top shape, then I don’t know what will. And we couldn’t help but pose at that starting line – you know, to pretend like we engaged in some athletic activity.
