The days are short for so much travel, but we try to do as much as we can with the adventures at hand! Right now I am in Belize (for the last 6 weeks of a four month winter sojourn). We love to visit ancient ruins (and Belize has a lot of these), we also… Continue reading Back again…!
After a long day of driving (and museums and sites) we were glad to check in to our sea view room at Glyfa Beach Hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The small balcony gave us a bit of a sea view. It is a lovely, well appointed, and updated hotel with large rooms and good… Continue reading Glyfa Beach Hotel and the Seaside Fish Taverna
Driving from the Aggelos Hotel to Glyfa Beach we decided to make a stop that we have made before at the small unique museum at Chora. The staff were fantastic and we enjoyed every minute! Needless to say that if this is not our fist time stopping here we must like what it offers. And… Continue reading Museum at Chora
A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest sites we have been to in Greece this site is downright boastful as one of the most important cities of ancient times. With an open active archeological dig happening while we were there we feel very grateful to have been able to speak to the… Continue reading The Ancient Site at Messene
What an absolutely beautiful spot! This was also a new stop for us this trip to Greece. And it was perfect… from the lovely rooms, to the friendly staff, to the fabulous food…and to top it off a beautiful beach for swimming and relaxing with the most fantastic sunsets! Could not have asked for more…and… Continue reading Aggelos Hotel
After a 43 hour journey we arrived back home from Greece early October... with oh so many things to do to catch up. Trying to finish a renovation and addition to our home as well as get ready for four months in Belize was a little dauting at best. But, we managed to get everything… Continue reading Whirlwind travel to home base! And back to travel again!

So, we had to make the trip back up the winding road to the newly refurbished and recently reopened (in a new location) to the Monemvasia Winery. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monemvasia What an incredible set up they have. I was awe inspired by the size and… Continue reading Monemvasia Winery
Lakonia Bay was a new stop for us this trip to Greece so we wanted to see what this part of the Peloponnese was like for swimming, eating and staying. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archangelos,_Laconia We drove from our hotel at Xiropigado through the mountains and down to the sea! Beautiful scenery and fantastic roads to drive with the… Continue reading Lakonia Bay Apartments
As this is a road trip…as well as many of our other trips to Greece, we love to travel the back roads, take mountain roads less travelled, and drive along the sea side beach roads. This road to Lakonia Bay was spectacular in its beauty! Winding, twisty, cliffside roads that make your blood run wild… Continue reading Road to Lakonia Bay
What can I say … one of our favorite wineries in Greece! As usual we tasted some nice wines and then bought them! Adamanthea (the nymph in Greek mythology who hid Zeus from his father to save him from being killed) is still there hosting tastings and she was so kind to have pictures taken… Continue reading Bairaktaris Winery – Return to Nemea – its always wine o’clock!
