Today on May 22, 334 BCE, Alexander the Great wins the Battle of Granicus, delivering his first crushing defeat to the Persian Empire. ••••• The Battle of Granicus was fought on the banks of the Granicus River near the ancient city of Troy. It marked Alexander the Great’s first major victory during his invasion of Persia. Alexander ruled as King of the Hellenic League, a large federation of Greek city-states and Macedonia. His father, King Philip II of Macedonia, recently subdued the various Greek Kingdoms under one banner. In 336 BCE, Alexander suddenly ascended the throne after his father’s untimely assassination. He immediately announced his intention to conquer the Persian Empire as retribution for their invasion of Greece over a century earlier. Alexander amassed a formidable army of Macedonian and allied Greek warriors. ••••• In early 334 BCE, he caught his enemy off guard by crossing into Asia minor well before the traditional campaigning season. Their march into the outskirts of the vast Persian Empire was long and slow. Under the command of Arsames, the Persian forces initially avoided confronting the invading army. Their strategy was to starve the Macedonians into retreating back home. However, Alexander decided to risk everything by enticing them into fighting near the Granicus River. Known for leading from the front, Alexander led a charge of his elite companion cavalry against the Persian left flank, but was quickly surrounded by a counter-attack. Alexander found himself disarmed and in grave danger before his companions rescued him. ••••• After hours of intense fighting, the Macedonian heavy cavalry finally broke through the Persian center. The phalanx infantry units quickly followed through the gaps. The Persian soldiers folded and retreated from the battlefield. The Battle of Granicus proved to be a critical victory, as Alexander’s army had been running dangerously low on food. At the time, most of the regional crops were just entering into the harvest season, so the Macedonians were able to fully resupply without enemy harassment. The Persian Empire was subsequently left wide open for the Macedonian invasion to continue.

The very blue sea that will catch your breath away. Fira is a very tranquil town to stay in if you want to get away from the crazy crowd in Oia 😂 You can still watch the beautiful sunset in Fira’s perspective and did I mention it comes with the caldera view too? 😉❤️ #greece #fira #santorini #thira #aegensea #blue #caldera #whitehouse #volcanic #scenery #travelogue2018 #cyclades #cycladicislands #hellenic

On May 24, 2018, the Greek Postal service, ELTA, issued 2 new stamps. The stamps are part of the 2018 Europa Bridge series. The 0.90€ stamp is of the Antirrio Bridge (Greek: Γέφυρα Ρίου-Αντιρρίου), it os officially named the Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge. This is one of the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and longest of the fully suspended type. The Antirrio Bridge opened in August 2004 and crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras. It links the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road. The 3.40€ stamp is of the Plaka Bridge. It was a 19th-century stone one-arch bridge in Greece that collapsed during the floods in February 2015. It was located at the borders of Arta and Ioannina prefectures, above the waters of Arachthos River. #stamps #cellos #sellos #briefmarken #francobollo #frímerki #timbre  #邮票 #philately #Марки #切手 #Corinth #Arachthos #Plakabridge #bridges #Antirriobridge #Hellenic

You all know what motivates me, and my purpose is strong. This motivation after a 3 month lay off increased my purpose, but my technique has suffered, particularly in my deadlift. I've dropped the weight to 120 kg to sort my technique. @dan_sherman your thoughts? #nevergiveup #deadliftprogress #deadlift #strength #strengthtraining #hellas #hellenic #belief #fitfam #fitfamuk #fightdepression #fitdads #technique #newcastle #greekfitness #greeks #bodybuildingmotivation #fitnessmotivation #fitness #newcastle #bodytransformation #consistency #goals Son; every day is a lesson, if you're prepared to listen 👂.

The Holy Trinity Monastery was featured in the 1981 James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only. It was constructed between the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and is included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. It is situated at the top of a rocky precipice over 400 metres high, in the Peneas Valley, northeast of the town of Kalambaka in central Greece. There are currently four monks in residence. #temple #monastery #holytrinity #unesco #unescoworldheritage #kalambaka #meteora #valley #rock #mountains #precipice #greece #greek #visitgreece #travel #travelphotography #travelpics #traveling #traveller #everytraveler #worldtraveler #instatravel #globetrotter #world-traveler #solo_travelers #hellas #hellenic #mustsee #photography #photooftheday
