Straight from the isles of the Ionian Sea, NBA legend Magic Johnson is giving the world a ‘tour’ of Greece this week via his vivid twitter travel posts.
Starting with his power walks and training routine in the morning on Corfu, his trip by boat to a remote monastery in the Ionian, his visit to Ithaca, and the day’s fresh catch for dinner, Magic is bringing the bright sun of Greece, the tastes and colors of its islands to the millions of his followers across the globe.
The 61-year-old LA Lakers icon and five-time NBA champion has been tweeting videos from Greece as he works out for the day with the Venetian Fortress of Corfu in the background, jogging along the coast as fans ‘honk their love and admiration’, and indulging in fresh seafood with his wife Cookie.
