Luxury in Luxor

Written on November 12, 2017 in Egypt

Luxor – November 10th – 12th 2017 We loved everything about Jordan. Everything from floating in the Dead Sea to the hospitality of the Jordanians. I had been apprehensive to take our family there at first thinking the country was part of the unrest everywhere, but was proved to be so wrong in my initial...

Exploring Amman

Written on November 9, 2017 in Jordan

Amman – November 9th 2017 One of the last days in Jordan we explored the city of Amman. We had the car rental but didn’t dare try to drive it into the city. Traffic was a whole new ballgame over there! We contemplated taking the bus but I was a little nervous about that and...

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...

Float On

Written on November 6, 2017 in Jordan

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...

We’ll miss our Greek salad and our GPS!

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 Our outdated hotel (I swear I was in the 80’s with the decor there) had thin walls and doors that barely latched and the sound traveled up and down the stairwells from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 to Athens – November 2nd 2017 6 days in Santorini passed pretty quick to be honest. It was time to get going. Plus we were almost the last guest to check out. End of season was now here and the staff were off for a few months to travel themselves! We were taking the...

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?

Written on October 30, 2017 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:...
