This long weekend, we visited our last on our list of the Ancient Wonders of the World. We now have seen 6 of the 7 as technically the Hanging Gardens of Babylon have not been found – and it is thought to be in Iraq – so we are giving this one a skip.

We went to see the Temple of Zeus at Olympia and we enjoyed visiting the museum and site so much! The weather was perfect in early June and as we stayed on the nearby island Zakynthos – it only took a two hours to Olympia via bus and ferry.

One of my favourite sights was not actually the Temple ruins, but the beautiful statues of Nike and Hermes.
