Santorini

Month 39

My hectic summer reached a fever pitch in Month 39. Two whirlwind final weeks in Greece capped off Europe, which had followed an action packed few months of traipsing the USA — and as amazing as that whole period of travel chaos was, upon reflection it  pushed me right to the brink of burnout.

Swinging Back Through Santorini thumbnail

Pulling into the Santorini harbor felt like a warm hug from an old friend. We were in rough shape after the carnage that was Mykonos — I pretty much feel that this snap from the ferry says it all. I knew we’d come to the right place to recover. I’d already spent five blissful days here…

Photo of the Week 166: Greece thumbnail

Greetings from… you guessed it, Greece! My mind is reeling at how quickly the past two weeks of my Greek Island Hopping tour went by.
