More Wine Please!

Napa Valley, California

The Mediterranean climate, geography and geology are the contributing reasons as to why the wine taste so good.

Greece Getaway

Santorini, Greece

Santorini is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera.

Katikies HotelIMG_9989IMG_9514IMG_9670Every afternoon the whole Island gathers together to watch the sunset. Within minutes the sun turns from a piercing light to a magical color palette filled with pinks, purples and oranges, at this point the crowd claps,  shaking the streets of Santorini, as a sign of appreciation to mother nature, for the beauty that they just witnessed.

Getting a boat for a day to take to around the Islands is always a good idea, especially in Santorini. As beautiful as the Island is the beaches are not overly impressive, if you crave swimming in open water like i do, a day on the boat is much needed.IMG_9880IMG_9812IMG_9924

The Sunset

The sunset glistens upon the land,

with people standing hand in hand,
the beauty that it brings to them,
the magic that it sings to them.

The sunset shines upon the ground,
with people standing, staring, astound,
the colors soaking into them,
the art evoking heart in them.

The sunset of life and love,
the sunset soaring in the heavens like a dove,
the sunset fills us up with mystery,
the sunset with an irreplaceable history.

Nonna Orsola Cooking Class, Ravello

This cooking class was a magical Italian experience. We picked all of our vegetables from the crops ourselves and cooked a three course traditional meal. Afterwards we ate, we drank and enjoyed the view.IMG_5099 IMG_5124
