A Few Reasons I Should Have Known I Was Going To Move To Greece

I moved to Greece a little over three months ago. I had never been there before until a visit after my interview in Brussels, and I don’t think I ever had it on my list of Things To Do Before I Die. And yet, here I am.

But then again, maybe there were some hints that this was a more than fanciful possibility. Here are some reasons I should have known I was going to move to Greece.

1. We owned a Minotaur or two.

2. Icons. We already had some.

3. My study of Koiné Greek

4. My interest in Greek history.

5. Baklava!

6. We named our daughter Sophia, which means “wisdom”, and is about as Greek a name as you can get.
