Petra – November 7th – 8th 2017 Petra! Petra is a historical and archaeological city in the south of Jordan. The city is famous for its rock-cut architecture. It took us 3 hours to drive to Petra from Madaba. Not too bad and the roads were pretty much in good condition with not too much...

Dead Sea – November 6th 2017 Jordan was a location that we added in after our travels started. A last minute decision and that meant even less planning than usual (not that we planned too much). We knew that we wanted to see the Dead Sea. We drove out of Madaba and surprisingly were able...

Madaba – November 5th 2017 Surprise!! We have arrived in Jordan. Leaving Europe was a big step. We had been in the European bubble for months and it was nice and a little nerve racking. Jordan in all honesty didn’t scream luxury and easy travel. It did grab me with it’s promise of adventure! We...

Athens – November 3rd to 5th 2017 We woke up to our first day in Athens to a whole bunch of noise. Our outdated hotel (I swear I was in the 80’s with the decor there) had thin walls and doors that barely latched and the sound traveled up and down the stairwells from other...

Santorini – October 31st – November 1st 2017 We stayed near Black Sand beach, it was beautiful and cold!! We only made it there 2 days and didn’t last too long either. So we needed to get out more and explore and renting a car was a must, not really a must but the bus...

Anyone want to get married in Greece?

Santorini – October 27th – 30th 2017 We arrived in Santorini without any issues. Quick flight, crazy landing beside a mountain on an island in the middle of the sea, you know, the regular stuff. The manager of the apartment/hotel we stayed at picked us up and helped us settle in. Two things were noted:...

Dubrovnik – October 26th 2017 Our last day in Dubrovnik had come. We had one last thing we wanted to do, walk around the city walls. It was great exploring the city from above for a couple hours. After that it was time to catch the bus to the airport. It was sad actually. A...

Split to Dubrovnik – October 22nd & 23rd 2017 Good bye Split, it was fun and relaxing. We dropped our rental car off by the bus station, which was a great convenience as we were taking the bus to Dubrovnik. Why drive yourself when the bus will be just as easy, not too expensive and...
