Travelogue to Greece, Curse on Greece
Part of my travelogue to Greece: It was the first time that something like that happened to me. I was stuck in plenty of troubles. The sun was scorching in Athens, causing my lips to dry up, but I was still carrying on with my tour.
During the trip, I had a couple on board who were engaged and were enjoying each other’s company. The girl seemed passionate about her new life, but the boy appeared less enthusiastic. We made some great memories and took plenty of photos. Throughout our stay in Athens, the boy, Behnam, was constantly searching for a SIM card and asking questions about the surrounding countries and train stations. I tried my best to guide him with optimism.
On the fifth day, I took the group to visit the nearby island of Kythnos. However, Behnam refused to accompany us, mentioning a headache as the reason. Instead, he sent his fiancee alone.
After returning to the hotel, tired and bored, I noticed my room phone ringing incessantly. Despite being in a cold shower and cursing the temperature, I answered the phone to find the girl on the other end sobbing and crying out, “Mr. Benyamin… Mr. Benyamin… he’s gone.”
I was deeply saddened by the news, and my heart went out to the girl. It was a tragic end to what had been an otherwise enjoyable trip.
He didn’t need to say anything else! I completely understood what was happening! It hit me like a heavy blow on cold iron! The girl’s family had organized the trip because Behnam loved to travel to Europe and even provided a return guarantee through the agency back home.
The boy had apologized by writing a letter to his fiancée and, even though he had ruined someone else’s fate, he was still chasing his European dream!
The day’s tour had passed and the entire group came together to help the girl improve her mood. I was concerned about the possibility of the girl harming herself. The last two days of the trip felt like an eternity to me. Even after all these years, I can still hear the sound of the girl’s cries in my ears. Never inflict misery on others for our own happiness! Never…
This was a portion of my travelogue to Greece that I hope you found interesting.
