Driving Greece – Backroads and beaches
We love driving Greece! The roads are good and the backroads are exciting…the goat paths…not so much. But we rely on the "Google Lady" to get us to and through most places we drive. She has been especially helpful, and also, especially problematic in Greece as she continues to tell us to turn left off… Continue reading Driving Greece – Backroads and beaches

The only real complaint from our group about the restaurants we visited was the a fact that they had 40 page menus! But, the real dilemma comes from only being able to eat one main dish (although some of us tried for more). It was almost an impossible number of choices each time we sat… Continue reading The Plague of the 40 Page Menus
