Captains Log – Stardate August 2015

This one is from Jen!  Sorry for the slow updates – Internet can be tricky when you are moving through countries quite quickly and they all require a different SIM card! Due to the much scorned Schengen Visa restrictions, Justin was not in possession of enough...

Crete 2 – Greece – 2/2014

Tearing ourselves from an idyllic camp near Elafonissis on the far southwestern tip of the island, we headed through the mountains on a tortuous highway that looked like a snake going crazy. Are there any straight roads on Crete? Our next stop was Chania...

Magical Mysterious Meteora

Magical Mysterious Meteora

    Actually, we don’t quite like too touristy sights, but we thought that we could not go to Greece and leave out Meteora. To be honest: we are totally impressed and this place surely is worth visiting even though it is touristy. Just like Kata Tjuta...
