As I hit a major bump in the road while editing my next video in my Alaska series and came close to giving this whole thing up, I came across a video I took in Greece back in 2019. I was looking through our pictures and videos from our spring break trip there because my oldest son, Eric, is in Greece and he was inquiring about what to see and do.
While going through all the footage, I found this video of our tour around the Olympic Games area in Olympia, Greece. This was the birthplace of the Olympic Games! The Originating Olympic Games are traditionally dated to 776 BC. The games were held every four years, or Olympiad, which became a unit of time in historical chronologies.
It was incredible and impossible to describe the way it felt to be here in this area that has such an incredible amount of human history. We were able to walk around this entire area. It isn’t nearly as protected as other ancient places. Greece is poor, they don’t have money to build infrastructure around these ancient parts of our history to protect them from the masses of people that visit here.
We were lucky and very few people were visiting this area for spring break while we were there.
I hope you enjoy this video. I certainly do! JJ running like that is amazing to watch!
Back to the Alaska series now that the quirks have been ironed out. Wishing you an absolutely fantastic day!
