Theopetra Cave. Less than 10 km from the town of Kastraki in Greece, where we stayed when visiting the stone pillars and monasteries of Meteora. A brochure that we received upon check-in stated that you must not miss this one-of-a-kind find! Though we didn't book a tour through Visit Meteora, I'm very grateful for their advice, as you'll soon see!
Sunsets. Sea kayaking. Motor sailing. Swimming. Snorkeling. Magical Milos has it all and more!
A park bench or a sunset. I promised you a photo of one or the other in each of my Spiritual Sundays back when I posted the first one, Peace..., on January 11, 2015. I've decided to give you two benches AND three sunsets today in reflecting upon my month-long vacation in Greece.
The glasses were ready. Would you like beer, wine--red or white, soda, juice, water...or maybe a little tsipouro or ouzo (though those drinks are usually served after the meal!)? Tuesday, September 15th was my husband's Name Day, and we celebrated it in style in Athens, Greece!
I was born and raised in Maryland, and absolutely adore steamed blue crabs and Maryland crab cakes. When my mother-in-law found live blue crabs for sale at her neighborhood seafood store in Palaio Faliro, Athens, Greece, we no longer had to visit the U.S. to get great crabs! For today's Feast On It Friday, I give you the recipes for steaming blue crabs and making crab cakes!
Only 100 days until Christmas! That was the announcement in many posts and shares in my Facebook feed yesterday. It immediately brought to mind our wonderful Christmas in Greece in 2014, when we surprised my mother-in-law by arriving in Athens on Christmas Day, when she thought we were spending the holiday in Paris! The photo above was taken just 2 days later when we enjoyed an evening stroll through Syntagma Square and then along Ermou Street.
I admit, today's Where Oh Where Wednesday is a tough one. Of course, I love making these guessing games a little challenging, especially with the first few photos. Let's get started!
Back in June, I shared with you my 20 favorite Instagram accounts. Today, I share 25 MORE!
One for each check--268 exactly! That's how many blog posts I read and commented on while completing Sarah Arrow's 30 Day Blogging Challenge in August successfully! Now, you probably will NOT have the time to read as many posts as I did in a month, but the opportunity to discover so many diverse blogs is a bonus when it comes to the 30 Day Challenge. Today, I introduce you to 5 other bloggers who completed the challenge in 30 successive days at the same time as me!
Batsi is a busy little beach town on the island Andros in Greece. Just a week ago, we spent the sunny day at another beach, but drove into Batsi for dinner.
