The best travel moments are accidental

The best travel moments are accidental
While wandering in the small alleys of Mykonos Island I came upon this older gentleman resting and watching pedestrians pass by. To me this moment captured the relaxed atmosphere I was so enjoying in Greece, so I set up to take a perfect photo, Click and oops – I got photo bombed! As the photo-bomber approached I showed him his photo and he explained he is a photo-bomb expert. A while later after perusing the local shops, I peeked into to one of the inviting cafes that lined the street. In this area, called Little Venice, the restaurants are on a cliff directly over the Aegean Sea. Stunning! I get ready to snap another photo and who do I see but my photo-bomber! He calls out to say this means we must meet. So this is how Benjamin and I met Yanni visiting Mykonos from Northern Greece with his brother,...

Let's Go to Greece

Let's Go to Greece
My son, Benjamin, and I are so excited to be landing in Greece this summer and we are inviting you to join us on our Escorted Family Adventure in the Peloponnese & Cyclades this August 17-30th! We are gathering a small group of like-minded, adventurous families to climb to hill-top temples with us, hike through river canyons, and explore the white-washed island streets. After Benjamin completed a Greek Mythology unit in his 5th grade class, we decided now is the perfect time to visit the mythical birthplace of our favorite gods: Athena, Apollo and Artemis. We can’t wait to walk in the actual places where many of these tales were said to take place. It certainly helps that the ancient sites are adjacent to the lovely Aegean Sea where we can swim in the crystal water and relax on the warm sands. Plus the Greek food is legendary! We will...

What if your children planned a trip to Greece?

What if your children planned a trip to Greece?
Remember the month your son spent absorbed in the Percy Jackson series? How he got out his pen and acted as though it was Percy’s Riptide Sword? Or when your daughter dressed up as Athena with full body armor and pretended to be leading a battle to face Achilles at Troy? Do you recall when they studied Greek history in school and drew images of what they supposed Mt. Olympus looks like? They would take you there, on a family trip to Greece ! To the places they read about, in search of the gods. They would climb Olympia, and explore every corner of Delphi or the Palamidi castle. They would run like Olympic athletes at the Athen’s Panathinaikon Stadium. Laugther would erupt while they dunk each other in the River Neda. Your daughter would ask to go swimming in the sea as often as possible and to spend time...
