I want to Travel the World

We just crossed the border from South Africa over to Namibia. I am over the moon with excitement for what this trip through the Namibian desert will bring. However, it is also a milestone for me because I have now set foot in and traveled through 50 countries! I know that numbers don’t matter and many travelers choose not to “count countries”, but I have always found that setting a goal pushes me to travel the world. Long ago, I told myself I would see the world. Having traveled to 50 countries I have now been in more than 25% of the … Read More

The Ultimate Guide to Packing For Greece

Spending a summer on one of the many Greek islands? Lucky you. The islands are beautiful, swarming with history, and are populated with some of the friendliest people in the world.

Now, with a couple of Greek island trips under our belt, we know better. Here is the ultimate list of what to pack for Greece.  What to Pack for a Vacation in Greece Essentials Flip Flops: Seriously, … Read More

The Best of Crete

Looking for things to do in Crete? Years ago we were able to visit the biggest island in Greece. Traveling to Crete then was a Minoan dream that we had to fulfill before we left the Mediterranean. Three years later we found ourselves traveling the 260 km long island once again, in search of the best places in Crete. We traveled all over, from Stefanou Beach to the famous Pink Sand Beach, Crete and were not disappointed. The Wikitravel page for Crete states that “If there was a beauty contest for Greek islands, Crete would surely be among the favorites.” Crete, … Read More

Stefanou Beach

The island of Crete is the largest Greek island, and quite possibly the most unique. It is not quite as alluring as Santorini or Mykonos. However, in Crete it is possible to step into small towns and villages where the 10,000th tourist of the day has yet to arrive by tour bus. While exploring the island we rented a car and were able to snap dozens of beautiful photos, enjoy traditional Cretan meals, fantastic wine, sweeping views, ancient ruins, and isolated bays. Even photos of Crete do not do it justice. It is a beautiful island that requires some work … Read More

Scuba Diving and Overcoming Fear with Waterhoppers Rhodes

Watershoppers Rhodes: Scuba Diving

When I studied abroad in Australia some time back, I knew I just had to go scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef.  My friends and I set it all up, but when the time came to actually scuba dive everyone panicked. Scuba diving for your first time can be a nerve-wrecking experience.  I mean – you’re willingly diving deep underwater with heavy equipment where you can not breathe. It sounds scary! I often tell people that scuba diving was one of the most daunting adventures during my travels, so I knew I had to give it another shot in Greece.  Scuba Diving with … Read More

Gulet Cruise With MedSea

We just finished our first of many Mediterranean vacations sailing along the Turkish coast. Our journey began in Marmaris, Turkey with MedSea Yachts and over the course of a week we had an experience that we can add to our list of things to do before you die.
