Traveling In Greece: Expectations Vs. Realty

Where the hell is Kostas?

1. Expectation: Stepping onto the set of the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants. What up, beaches?

2. Reality: Nope. And there aren’t donkeys waiting on every corner for when you get tired of walking.

3. Expectation: Greek yogurt is going to taste like vanilla yogurt with a European twist with hints of honey and fruit. Maybe John Stamos will show up.

4. Reality: SOUR CREAM. You’re eating sour cream. I mean you have to be, right? Tastes exactly like it. WHERE IS THE HONEY? THE FRUIT?!

5. Expectation: Greek men resemble the Greek gods from the books and stories and fantasies.

6. Reality: Nope.

7. Expectation: You will meet a fisherman named Kostas and fall in love despite your family’s troublesome background.

8. Reality: It would be safe to assume that over half the male population in Greece is named Kostas. That includes that 90 year old grandpa in the corner and that 8 year old that just tried to pick pocket your wallet. This dream is dead.

9. Expectation: Riding on a donkey up a hill in Greece is life changing and peaceful. You will look like Alexis Bledel in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants gracefully side sitting in your lovely white dress.

10. Reality: Nope. Forget side sitting- mount that bad boy and show it who is boss.

11. Expectation: You won’t let the Greek nightlife get the best of you.

12. Reality: OUZO + COBBLESTONE STREETS + HEELS = HOT ASS MESS.

13. Expectation: Running around the first ever olympic track will be such an enlightening experience. You’ll feel so light and free.

14. Reality: OMG YOUR SIDE. IT HURTSSSS.

15. Expectation: You’ll get so many great pictures when visiting the Acropolis.Memories. <3

16. Reality: IT’S SO FREAKING WINDY. WHAT IS THIS?

17. Expectation: You’ll totally master the correct pronunciation of “gyro” by the time you order your first.

18. Reality: Not even close.

19. Expectation: You will enjoy the rich Greek history and all it has to offer.

20. Reality: OBSESSED. Greece has your heart, soul, and 3/4 of your bank account.
