One of our favorite trips so far has been to Greece, in 2005.
We started in Athens, drove around the Peloponnese mainland,
then hopped a week’s cruise through the Cyclades Islands.
We ate feta from the gods, held hands on the field that hosted the first Olympic Games,
ogled soaring white mountains of Naxian marble, and swam together in the warm Ionian Sea.
We have only this to say:
Go to the fabulousness of Greece. Go now.
Here are some resources to help you plan your own “travels with two” to Greece.
