Why Squidoo rocks - "Ancient Greece Odyssey: A Traveller's Journal"

Ancient Greece Odyssey: A Traveller's Journal on Squidoo

They say that the web is infinitely wide, but only an inch deep. Squidoo is one of the exceptions. People pick a topic- let's say "Greece". Then they create a "Lens" that focuses on their topic in as much detail as they wish. Lenses can include text, photos, annotated lists of links or relevant books, etc. Some people abuse Squidoo for spammy purposes, but it should be judged on it's successes, rather than the abuses.

Today's link is a woman's travelogue of her visit to Greece, with gorgeous pictures and descriptions of her travels. Greek Geek relates her travels with Greek history and mythology, and makes it so easy to get caught up in the romance and the wonder of her journey. It'll be essential reading whenever I decide to make the voyage to Greece.
