Sailing and Sunsets in Santorini

One of the additional perks of our hotel was that they deliver made to order breakfasts to your room each morning.  Naturally, we wanted to try a little bit of everything, so we ordered a bread basket with fresh croissants and homemade bread, jams and butter, Greek yogurt with honey and fruit (somehow this tastes way…

The Search for the Perfect Gyro

A very bizarre and unexpected thing happened overnight.  When we were chilling on the balcony before going to bed last night, the lights down in Pollonia seemed to flash ever so slightly, but came right back on.  For a split second, it was pitch dark, but I thought I was just tired and my eyes…

The Case of the Missing Tour Guide

  Still a bit jet lagged, we decided to sleep until our bodies woke us up naturally.  So guess what time we got up?  11:30!!  Whoops.  Clearly the jet lag was no joke.  Not to mention we’ve been sleep deprived for months.  So it was nice to sleep in majorly, but not nice to miss breakfast…

Beach Adventures on Milos

After our redeye and full day of travel, we were shot so we went to bed super early after dinner.  That, however, did not stop us from sleeping in…it was our honeymoon after all!   And the best way to kick off a relaxing, unhurried honeymoon was on the island of Milos.  We barely made it…

Michelin Dining in Athens (because we’re married and no longer on a diet)

Despite the crappy flight, it was 10:30am before we knew it, and we had arrived in Athens.  We were amazed at how quickly we got through passport control – they literally glanced at everyone’s passports, asked zero questions, and stamped us through.  However, we still weren’t at our final destination yet.  We had 7 hours to wait…

Off to Greece! (but first, Montreal)

The wedding is over, the honeymoon is over, and now it is finally time to get this blog back on track!  Doug and I have talked for years about wanting to visit Greece together, but wanted to hold off to make it our honeymoon.  So there was quite a risk in waiting as we didn’t…

From Boston to Wiscasset…

If you decide to fly into Boston and have a few days to spare, we urge you to make a few pit stops before your final destination of Wiscasset.  Here’s our list of noteworthy cities and towns of varying sizes, with some highlights for each.  Note that we haven’t yet had the time to visit…

Portland

Portland to me is the west coast transposed onto New England. With its rocky coast, cool nights, and hipster vibe, it’s definitely as Cali as you get out on the east coast. The food scene was just as good, which, if anyone knows me, puts the town pretty high on my list. To Eat: Eventide…

Boothbay Harbor

Boothbay Harbor is a darling of a seaside resort, located 15 minutes from Wiscasset. A popular yachting destination, Boothbay is home to numerous quaint restaurants, bars, and shops. To Eat: Mine Oyster – wood fire-grilled seafood, steaks, and more, often with live music late night on the waterfront dock Boat House Bistro – best known for…

Local Gems in Wiscasset

At 27 sq miles, Wiscasset is a small, charming village. Translated from its Native American name, it means “coming out of the harbor but you don’t see where.”  While lovely, there really isn’t a ton to do except to experience some local seafood while enjoying some views of the Sheepscot River.  We recommend grabbing a…

Tchau, Brasil!

With a relatively lengthy process to return to the main pier, we decided to relax on the beach by our hotel with a nice breakfast and time to finish our postcards. We actually woke up to pouring rain, so we really had some pretty limited options in terms of outdoor activities anyhow. Our original plan…

The Worst Experience Ever

Warning: this is not for the faint of heart, or weak of stomach. I know I have a few friends who have supported my efforts by reading my every blog post, but to those friends – you are under no obligation to read this one! Doug and I have had a number of amazing, memorable…
