On to Delphi

After two nights in Kastraki, we left for Delphi. It’s a 3-hour drive through the countryside. Did you know that there is a lot of cotton grown in Greece? I didn’t. We passed by many fields.

Cliff Top Monasteries

I had never heard of Meteora until my husband Cameron started talking about it. He kept telling me about a scene from a James Bond movie that was filmed in Greece, and there were cliffs. It was not a lot to go on, but we discovered Meteora once we started our online search. It looked…

We check British-influenced cities before we travel to see who has the best scones and we always visit them. We have strong opinions about cream and jam and the order they are applied to the scone.
