  • Get Her to the Greek: Final Thoughts Aragma. A delightful Greek phrase that basically means the small joys of life. It’s a slang word that means “chilling” but carries with it the notion to live simply, to enjoy the Posted by vicki_h in . | Apr 1, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Day ElevenI couldn’t believe it was already our final day in Greece. We enjoyed one final al fresco breakfast by the pool. [img=https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7902/32541277357_3de71c8084_b. Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 31, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Day Ten It was our final breakfast at the villa on Kefalonia. We gave our ferocious guard dog one final belly rub and loaded up the Fiat to head back to the airport. It was a very short Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 30, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Day NineA giant bag of oranges had been provided in our welcome basket and we hadn’t managed to eat many of them, so I decided to try my hand at fresh OJ. We enjoyed fresh juice and a lovely breakfast at Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 29, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Day EightIt was a slow-moving, post-wine kind of morning. We started the day with breakfast at the villa, overlooking the sea. [img=https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7859/32477783627_2559 Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 28, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Day SevenWe wanted to visit the peninsula on the western portion of Kefalonia and knew that would make a long day, so we agreed to get up early-ish and have a quick breakfast and hit the road. I made pressed cheese Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 27, 2019

  • Get Her to the Greek: Day FiveWe couldn’t believe our 5 days on Zakynthos were already over. It was up at 6:00 a.m. to catch a flight to the next island: Kefalonia. We had a moment of panic when we reached the small airport, checked our Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 25, 2019

  • Get Her to the Greek: Day OneUnless you are talking about getting hit by a bus, in which case, you certainly wouldn’t end up stronger. You’d end up with a funny limp and a medical assistance border collie named Fergus. But I digress…. Back to the Posted by vicki_h in . | Mar 21, 2019
  • Get Her to the Greek: Travel DayT.S. Eliot said, “The journey, not the arrival, matters.” Obviously, T.S. Eliot never flew American Airlines from Tennessee to Greece in a coach seat.

  • Get Her to the Greek: IntroFive years after our trip to the whitewashed enchantment of the Cyclades Islands in Greece, I found myself dreaming of a return to those idyllic islands.

  • A Picture is worth a thousand words The pommie tourist we met in Venice said that Santorini was so still and haunting. I'd agree, but that view is stunning - how's the serenity?
