Traveler Bio

Γεια σας (hello!) fellow travel enthusiasts! My name is Elijah Greene. I am 21 years old, and I am from Pine Village, Indiana. Traveling abroad has always been a passion of mine, so I am spending the spring semester of my junior year studying at the American College of Thessaloniki in Thessaloniki, Greece. Back home in the US, I go to Wabash College, where I study Biology and Classics, which is the study of ancient Greece and Rome).

My love of the ancient Mediterranean brought me here to Greece, where I intend to study ancient Greek art and architecture, as well as the culture and history of modern Greece! There is so much to explore and discover in this old city. While I'm out and about, you'll almost always catch me with a camera in my hand! I love taking photos! I can't wait to share my story with you through pictures (and words, too!), as well as answer all of your questions about anything related to Greek culture and language!
