We are back in San Diego. I wanted to let you know how fantastic our trip was. Greece is a stunning country. Every single day we would go back to our hotel at the end of the evening and talk all about all the wonderful experiences we had.
Athens--of course remarkable due to the incredible ancient history and structures. I could not believe I was standing at the birthplace of democracy! Our view of the Parthenon from the outside bar at the Attalos Hotel was amazing.
Naxos was a beautiful island. We used the public buses to go into the mountains, and visit the little villages. We loved the beaches, and the beautiful water. We also had a chance to listen to music one evening on a veranda at the old castle. And the family that runs the Hotel Grotta were some of the nicest people we had ever met.
Santorini was just stunning--especially Oaia. We visited a great art gallery/winery in Santorini called Art Space. We also took the public buses to the black beaches.
We LOVED the food! The tomatoes, feta cheese, and cucumbers were the best we ever had. We had a great time tasting local products such as Naxos honey, the fish caught that day in the sea, and the Santorini wine. My husband's favorite was the stuffed tomatoes, and I loved the wine leaves stuffed with rice and meat.
Thank you for all your help to make this trip so memorable. Greece is so beautiful. We have already talked about returning, and going to Crete, and maybe Turkey.
Thank you again,
