“I loved the culture, the people, the life you live, and how you live. Perspectives are different and life is more! Enjoying the little things and the moments spent with people worth being around. Learning Greek was really helpful and a fun class. The location of everything was excellent. Extracurricular activities and the excursions were amazing! Just Bravo!! I’ll be back eventually..”
