The flying five has made it to Greece!
We are staying at a lovely guest house by the ocean with pool! It is a bit of the beaten track but our hosts have graciously offered to drive us to get groceries, etc. Jane and Megan, friends from Whitehorse arrive today! They are on a year long journey as well so it is going to be great to catch up with them!
There is nothing too wild and crazy to report other than we are really enjoying the tranquility of our latest residence.
Our trip ti Tirana was spectacular and at times we rgreted our decision for not going further south. We felt, though, that we can visit Albania another day. With the kids, it s much better to bite off smaller chunks. They are so happy to be settled here in Santorini and are absolutely thrilled with the pool.
A highlight for me on our way to Tirana was visiting, what is claimed to be, the oldest olive tree in the world in Montenegro. For me, that was a religious experience. I was in awe and could not take my eyes off of the rugged, gnarly tree that has been here for over 2 thousand years! It was one of those serendipitous events that we had the good fortune to experience.
As I type the kids are making videos with Manas' camera under the water. I think we will just stay here all day... I will have to entire into town to visit my favourite bakery in Santorini! It is an authentic Cretan bakery and sells all sorts of goodies including Spanikopia to die for!!! Mom you would LOVE this bakery! The bread is perfect!
We are sending lots of love to you all, thanks for reading our entries. It is so nice to feel all of your love, support and goodness.
