About us...

I’m 32 and my husband is 36 (we celebrated our 4th anniversary while in Greece). This is our second big trip together (the first being Mexico on our honeymoon). Normally, we only take 3 or 4 day long weekend trips once, maybe twice a year, along with a week every Christmas to visit our families who live far away from us. So, this was the trip of a lifetime for us, as we are ready to settle down and have children--who knows when we’ll have the time or money to take another big vacation. We love tropical destinations, beaches, history and ruins, local character….hmm… Greece was a perfect choice for us! Not yet having traveled to Europe (well, I’ve been to the former Soviet Union…but that is different from the typical travel destination for most), the center of western civilization seemed like the perfect place to start.
