It seems like forever ago since we planned an international trip and finally its happening. We endured two years of the pandemic, much of which made it nearly impossible to cross borders. We said goodbye one pet (our Little Old Man and star of the luggage photos) and picked up another (see Hank the Tank […]

Little did we know that Jen’s annual Birthday trip would be our last adventure before the pandemic changed everyone’s access to travel. Like most we have been laying low and waiting for things to improve while reminiscing about past adventures. It has taken us nearly 8 months to gather ourselves and the memories to make […]

Tuesday morning came early as we pulled into the port of Chania with the rising sun off our starboard side. We were up and planning our day that started with a trip to the Manousakis Winery and Vineyards. By 9 AM our small group was loaded into our Range Rover and our affable driver pledged […]
