While hiking through remote villages in the majestic gorges of the Peloponnese, Greece, I reveled in the magnificent and rich landscape of lush cypress trees, golden hillsides, and rustic ancient ruins. Nestled amongst the fragrant olive groves, I took peaceful refuge in a romantic, quaint church after a long, arduous day. I journeyed for ten days and remember feeling the crackling of dry brush beneath my feet, the fervent little lizards that darted across the rocks, small watering holes with archaic fountains built for passersby, a soft, aromatic breeze which whispered softly through the bramble and trees, and small sparrows that frolicked between the wispy clouds.
