Chania is a northwestern city on the island of Crete. Its stunning rocky coastline, picturesque harbor, and quaint narrow streets charm visitors from around the world. We visited for two weeks, and felt we could have stayed longer, and of course both said over and over that we need to go back. One of the […]
When our train pulled into Meteora Greece our jaws hit the ground. It’s one of those places that looks gorgeous in pictures, but is a completely different experience when you see it yourself.

The tour is a free […]
