Sailing on a Merchant Ship
In Greece, most of the land was rocky and mountainous, not right growing conditions for plants or crops. So, it was difficult to plant crops or to grow anything. However, out of the few crops they could choose, they grew olives, grapes, and sometimes barley. Olives would be made into olive oil.
As farming was difficult, so was transportation. Transportation was hard due to the mountains and high peaks that the people had to cross to go to other city-states. So, whenever they traveled, they took mules or horses to ride on or take their bags. However, the most comfortable way to take the boat or water on a ship.
