Recalling Greece 2012 {Delphi}

After Berea, we left Central Greece and headed to Delphi, also known to the locals as the birthplace of the world.

Delphi Greece on Adventurous ShelbyThere was no biblical significance to Delphi except to better understand the ancient Greek culture. Delphi is situated in a mountain pass, close to the sky and therefore closer to the gods. Apparently before the earth was born, it’s mother Hera flew all around looking for the perfect place to give birth, and decided here or there I guess was the best place. They say it’s the birthplace of the world because that is where the earth’s ‘belly button’ is. (it’s an outie by the way)
