Book Club

Last week I started to read the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Sadly this is where I admit that it’s been a while since I read a fictional novel without the express purpose of having to write a report on it. I used to read intensively when I was younger but university sucked the life...

Churches and sheep

We had a fantastic day out and exploring some of the nearby villages on our little scooter. Our day seemed to revolve around churches and sheep. We saw (and photographed) about 3 of the many churches we saw, and found 2 lots of sheep (and some goats). We stopped at the top of a cliff to have...

Supermarket Supermoo...

We headed into Nafplio today for a bit of a tour around the town before we went to the market. By mid-day wandered to the market – repeating for the most part last Saturday’s events. Again, we returned loaded up with bags (and kilograms upon kilograms) of spinach, lettuce, apples,...

Coffee Communication

To switch it up today we headed out to the beach first thing for a walk. The water is still not warm enough to swim in – at least for us. You see people swimming all the time but Andrew’s theory is that most of these people only have only one week before their vacation is over and...

& again

I hate to be a repeating record but this week is so busy in terms of work we’ve been doing much of the same. Workout, hammock, work, and out for souvlaki and a walk on the beach at night. Another good day....

Finding Balance

Life has been very good these past few days. The sun is out (and it’s warm) every day, and while we have both had an abundance of work, we are finding a balance. We work mostly in the afternoon when the timezones align which leaves us some time in the morning for a quick workout or some...

Eleven

Today was another full day of work but it was also another beautiful day of sunshine. The streets were especially busy and town was fuller than usual because of a national holiday. People were out on the beach and filling up restaurants, bringing a bit of life to the sleepy town. It gives a...

Lots of work

Yesterday we tried out another restaurant – we’re pretty much on a mission to try as many of the taverns and places as possible. It’s one of the reasons we’re here – we are weighing our options for our wedding reception. There is one more contender that we need...

Rainy days

Today started out nice and warm – we decided it was time to head into Nafplio to brave the produce market, which seems to occur almost daily. The market was busy and full of great produce we’ve been itching for. The past few days of souvlaki has been alright but getting some nice...

Sunny Days

The first thing we noticed about Tolo is, it’s quiet. People are going about their day, roads are relatively quiet and the tourists have yet to fully invade the town. We feel for the business owners though because they are struggling more than usual to fill their restaurants, hotels and...

Canadians are Coming

We put our “adventure pants” on today and ventured out to expand our world in Greece a little. We made it to Tolo today (for the second time) and this involved the big world of public transportation. Surprisingly we found this rather easy and very cost effective, and fairly stress...
