the liebster award

My friend Hayley recently nominated me for the Liebster award. This is an award bloggers can give to other bloggers that have a small readership and they think other people would find interesting. It is kind of like a chain letter, but a nice way to learn more about people and spread great blogs.

mykonos in september

Mykonos surprised me. From what I had heard it is a party island, and I expected it to be that and not much else. Instead what Jess and I found was less party and my favourite town of all!

naxos - windsurfing and more sunsets

I was finally getting the hang of this relaxing holiday thing in Santorini when it was time to go. Jess and I got the afternoon ferry to Naxos and realised straight away it was beautiful and interesting in a different but good way. No huge cliffs with soaring views, but instead less crowded lanes, a beach to walk to and sunsets based around an ancient ruin.

santorini views

Prepare for a ton of photos of one of the most spectacular places I have ever been.

athens part one

Arriving in a new country at night is always a bit strange. Sometimes the airports and the transport to your destination all seem so familiar you could be almost anywhere, until you see something that firmly reminds you it's a whole new place and you can get excited about a new adventure.

In Paris it was spotting the Eiffel Tower, in Istanbul the ancient walls of Constantinople, and in Greece it was the Greek writing on buildings and signs. Kind of forgot about that...

on the road again

- To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of land remote,
To travel is to live - Hans Christian Anderson
