Away For a Few Days for Work..and Then..

Okay - so again I will be leaving town to cover a horse show. I will return next week. Did not want you to worry since I will not be posting on the blog.

Once I get back though, Don and I are going to start to plan our 'big' vacation. We only have 1 week...well he only gets 1 week of vacation..I get 6! We have thought about many different options including going on a cruise...but with cruises there are ports to visit and it would drive me crazy if I could not go exploring if Don was not feeling well...and he would probably make himself ill just wanting to do something to make me happy....soooo right now first place vote goes to going to and thoroughly enjoying only one place. Where is that place you might ask??? It is Santorini...a beautiful Greek Island!

Here are just a few pictures of this beautiful island..

..where the hotel is built into the side of the cliff..

..and every single room has a view like these!

Have been keeping up with your blog through Southern Hospitality. The trip sounds wonderful. We were there about 5 years ago on a cruise. Try to get over to Mykinos (sp) if you can. Also do the mule up the many steps!

Enjoy,
Dixie

Hello there ... no I haven't been to the Greek Isles (sadly) but know former co-workers around the country (in the travel industry) who have and I would be happy to ask them any questions for you ...
From what I've heard over the years, this is a true fairy tale destination and you can't do anything wrong ....
