Didim, Turkey

When we travel from one country to another, despite the level of research we do, I can never really know what we will find when we arrive. It is for this reason we like to take a ““peek”” at a place before committing to an entire winter there. We were glad we took this approachContinue reading “Didim, Turkey”

HAPPY 12TH BIRTHDAY JACK!

Happy 12th Birthday Jack! Bear with me here while I write a few words about being Jacks mom.

Since all our family and friends arriving should see, at a minimum, Athens- and most wantContinue reading “The Cyclades Islands (Milos, Folegandros, Thira)”

Ionian Greece

Lefkas, Nydri, Ithaca, Cephalonia, Zakynthos, Katakolo (Olympia), Kalamata, BWA Yacht Service, Olive Route Tours, and so long Kim, Steve and Missy…. After only a short 6 weeks in Greece, we have all fallen in love. It isn’t hard to see why, given that just mentioning the country evokes feelings of old-world charm, azure seas andContinue reading “Ionian Greece”
